Summer 2017

Did you any travel anywhere last summer? Write to us and tell us all about it.

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, Today i will tell you about my Vacation in 2017.
    i was near Pisa, to be exact at San Giuliano Terme.
    The name of the place in Bagni di Pisa.
    It’s a unique place, where you can reconnect to nature with your body and mind.
    My days started with a good breakfast and then i divid in to the spa water. There are different hot tubs each has different properties.
    In addition it is possible to have beauty and relaxation treatments.
    My holiday lasted a week because the place is vary expensive, but i prefer a week in San Giuliano Terme to a longer time in commercial places.

  2. In my last summer Holiday I went to Southern France with my family. We started from Rome around August 10th on Air France flight and we landed in Nice.
    Here, we hired a car and we started our trip to the Provence region.
    We visited some of the most beautiful locality of this region: Aix-en-Provence, Gordes, Roussillon and the regional Luberon park.
    These areas are caracterized by the presence of immense and beautiful lavender fields. Too bad that in the season we were in, most of the lavender flowers had already been harvested. So I recommend going there in June or July.
    After ten days in this region we left to Marseille. Two days to visit the old town and the time to enjoy a good dish of “bouillabaisse” (typical Marseille fish soup) and we left to Paris.
    It was not the first time we visited Paris. So we avoided the classic visits to the various monuments and we preferred to live the city without a hurry. Day by day we decided what to do.
    Anyway, however, Paris is always Paris.
    I have had a wonderful holiday and hope to return to those fantastic places.

  3. 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.
