Last night!May 13, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C
An evening at the Vesuvius! The trattoria under our accommodation!
Set off this morning for the island of Capri, a stunning island populated by the very rich and famous!
Expensive shops and restaurants, but we managed to find a restaurant tucked away!
Sandy bought a pair of custom sandals so very happy!
Lots of window shopping, now planning our evening meal from the trattoria underneath our apartment!!!Read more
Enjoying the Italian vibe - fab air B and B right in the middle of the Spanish quarter, over a Trattoria and a famous fish shop!!
Great meal with the locals, cheapest food and wine for months!!
Off to Pompei and the Amalfj coast with one of the waiters mates as a taxi driver and guide!!
Well we have had a day that just worked!
Luca picked us up st 9.30 and was our taxi driver and guide all day!
Pompei was fab and just mind blowing - the Romans were a truly amazing civilisation.
Then onto Sorrento and the Amalfi coast road. Stunning coastline - then feeling hungry Lucas took us to a restaurant overlooking Positano, with amazing views snd great food.
Took a gamble with the home made pasta and sea food but really glad I did 😊
Wine only 10 euros s litre 😊😊
Back to crazy Naples with tickets booked for the ferry to Capri tomorrow.
Now just for more food, a recommended restaurant.Read more
After three nights at Kimberley ski resort, time to start winding our way home😒
Dave’s body is creaking a bit but he managed really well learning to ski in powder and different conditions.
I found a good trek down to the town, sat in the hot tub and had a massage! Hard life!
Off to airport soon to get in our 18 seater plane to Calgary.
Blue sky here so hoping to get a good view of the Rockies from the air...Read more
Beautiful blue sky day, perfect conditions for those who love to strap planks to their feet and slide down mountains!
Dave set off early and joined a ski tour which he enjoyed whilst I set off down the mountain into the small town of Kimberley - further than I thought, a beautiful path through the trees , with the mountains in the distance.
Plan was to meet Dave for lunch, so was very thankful when I saw a taxi, accosted him and got agreement that he would drive me back up the hill to the ski resort! !!!
Will have to return to Kimberley tomorrow but with better time planning as I didn’t get in any shops!
Afternoon spent reading my kindle in the sun Whilst Dave skies, drinking our fav beer ‘shock top’ a wheat beer from Belgium!Read more
Set off this morning to climb the Buttes for a second time in two years, we wanted to recreate our photo but this time in the snow!
We didn’t have the snow shoes on but needed the poles as the snow was deep - step off the beaten down path and you sank to your knees!
Stunning view point, watching the elk move across the fields. Photos done we headed down - even more tricky!
Headed to check in at Kimberley ski resort - a fabulous suite with all mod cons and more!
David and Neal rushed to the slopes for the afternoon session whilst I relaxed ( a little snooze might have taken place!)
Nachos, beer and a hot tub rounded
off the day 😊Read more
Headed off to a hot spring this morning, three large rock pols alongside a beautiful river.
Turned up in full thermals, coats etc, not quite believing we were going to strip off and get in a rock pool in -3!
Well we did and it was fab! Very hot water, great chat, cold beer!
Tried the stream but ice melt is very cold!
Then set off on a forestry service road, and headed il into the Rockies- stunning stunning stunning.....Read more
Dave set off with trepidation but came back with smiles, managed a good run at the slopes, with his first experience of powder snow⛷⛷
Frances and I meandered around Fernie managing to eat and drink in all the best places!
Off to hot springs today
