This Summer 2017!

Have you any travel plans for this summer? Write to us and tell us all about them.

Here are our Editor’s summer travel plans:

In late July I’ll head for the UK. I’ll spend a night in London with friends, then get the train north to Durham, a small city in the north-east of England. While I am there I hope to visit Newcastle and the beautiful county of Northumberland

Then at about ‘Ferragosto’, or 15th August, I’ll come back to Rome. But not for work. I’ll spend a few days here, then probably head for France to join some friends for a bicycle ride somewhere in Provence. If I am lucky, I’ll take in a visit to some more friends in Annecy, up in the French Alps.

Or I might head down to the Puglia region of southeast Italy. This area has become very trendy recently. I love the whitewashed villages and rocky coastline there.

You can read about some of my experiences on the ‘Backroads‘ blog.

  1. Hello everyone. I did most of what i mentioned in the post above. I went to Durham, Norfolk in the east of England, Northumberland and even, for a night, to Scotland to see friends whom I met many years ago in the Sahara. Needless to say, the trip we did then wouldn’t be possible now.
    I also went, as mentioned above, to Annecy, and then back to Rome.
    Then I drove up to the south of France. My first stop was in Cannes (Alpes-Maritimes) where, sadly, I went to a funeral. Then I headed west to the Vaucluse. There I stayed with a friend and, abandoning my car, I went on a bicycle ride from Provence to the mountainous Cévennes region the other side of the Rhone.
    After that, I returned to Italy and spent two relaxing days in Tuscany, near Castagneto Carducci. i went out for a couple of rides there, once with a friend from Naples who has lived there for many years.
    So generally, it was a very positive and energy-giving holiday. Now it’s your turn to write! Let’s have your summer holiday stories.
