We’ve crossed the border and travelled from Germany to Italy in the World Dolls Series – we’re certainly clocking up the miles!
The lovely illustrations are by Philippa Walters this time.
Our guides are Lisa & Pietro. They’re a cheery couple, always singing & dancing. Pietro with his guitar & Lisa with her tambourine.
We’ve spent the last few weeks watching the hard-hitting & brilliant Gomorrah on TV – as you might imagine this is a more light-hearted view of Italy! We start in the North with its mountain scenery and work our way down to the hot & sunny South – taking in cities like Venice & Rome.
The pretty villages & harbours are much celebrated – along with the stunning countryside.
These narrow streets & steps are a classic scene that springs to mind when we think of the Mediterranean holidays that we’ve taken.
There are lots of processions & festivals too – and pretty whitewashed houses with painted shutters, ornate railings and flowers in pots. See, we told you it wasn’t Gomorrah.
Makes us want to pack a small rucksack and jump in a camper van. I’m sure they could do with a hand (or foot) for the grape treading.
Join us next time when we’ll be in Austria.
