June 21st 2018 – home

Well, I’ve been off the radar for a bit, for no particular reason. So, what have I been up to since Sorrento? We went to All Points East festival on the last May Bank Holiday weekend to see Yeah Yeah Yeahs and LCD Soundsystem which was fantastic. I found a spacious, very modern Airbnb right […]

May 15th 2018 – Sorrento, Italy

We woke to lashing rain but braved it and went for breakfast at an American style diner called Fauno. I needed eggs after our big night so I had a veggie omelette which was accompanied, inexplicably but not disappointingly, with French fries – the perfect, carb-loaded breakfast to conquer my hangover. Mr P had a […]

Written in retrospect – I debated whether to blog this. The handwritten version is a wild, scrawly stream-of-consciousness and doesn’t particularly paint Mr P is a favourable light.

Written in retrospect Today, we caught the ferry to Capri. The marina itself is very touristy with everyone departing from the ferry being bombarded with offers of trips to the various grottoes dotted around the isle, shops selling tat emblazoned with ‘Capri’ and restaurants with pushy waiters. It’s pretty though, that’s undeniable, and we were […]

May 10th 2018 – Sorrento, Italy

Written in retrospect Mr P bought bread, meat and cream cheese so after a makeshift breakfast, we headed out for a proper mooch around the town. Gorgeous, cobble-stoned alleyways twist and turn lined by shops selling jewellery, prints, leather goods and pretty much anything you could dream of with lemons on it. It’s pretty cool, […]
