As the end of summer drew near Nathan and I took a trip to Italy for our summer holiday. We were lucky enough to be staying at my supervisor from works apartment in Vallelarga, Abruzzo which was awesome – comfy, clean and well-equipped with a real authentic Italian feel. We really enjoyed the use of the TV and stack of DVD’s when it was thunder storming!



The view from the bedroom where we slept was a highlight too – opening the traditional shutters each morning to the mountain view was amazing. We weren’t so keen on the chickens that lived next door though – they constantly clucked away all times of the day!


Perfect Getaway

During our week in Italy we were able to achieve the right balance of relaxation and chilling with being a tourist and visiting some local sights. The highlight for me was definitely our ‘holiday from the holiday’ to Vasto and chilling on the beach. Closely followed by our day at Lago di San Domenico – simply stunning!
