CIAO BELLA!!!OMG we were in Italy at 10 am !!! Friday morning after yet another delicious breakfast served on the terrace we found ourselves taking a 30 min. train journey into the beautiful sea side town of Ventimiglia in Italy.
A charming and very popular town in the Summer with those holidaying on the French Riviera.
Me and Dawn enjoying breakfast. I cannot tell you how much I loved spending some time with this lovely scottish girl. Her giggle is famous and infectious and her style impeccable. I think by the end of the trip we agreed that she had no less than 10 bags with her on that trip, I think she bought 2 as presents though, she is so funny and I love her to bits.
Once on the platform in Ventimiglia I couldn't resist taking this photo.
The street market that takes place every Friday pulls in even more people than normal so it was certainly busy that day . Boy was I glad I decided to go!within minutes of arriving we reached the food market and the smell was SO GOOD. While Monaco smelled of expensive perfume everywhere you turned this market smelled of good and fresh food, I did preferred this smell for sure.
Faced with such an array of beautiful fresh foods we quickly decided to buy some special treats and have a picnic on the nearby beach. The views were stunning from every angle and I wished I had a bikini with me so that I could try the inviting sea just like the locals were doing. Look at that sky
Me and Paula, on the bridge behind us there was a guy playing on his violin, we could hear him from where we were sat and it sounded so very romantic.
Myself and the lovely Michelle, gosh I defy anyone not to fall in love with this lady, she is funny and warm and so very beautiful, you know that natural beauty no need for any make up beauty. I loved spending that day with her, and you must check out her BLOG for more fabulous photos of this trip (I really missed my big camera seeing her lovely photos) and the funniest text message she received from her hubby, I never laughed so much what a fun couple they are.
We headed back and popped into the Hospitality desk for a chance to spin the wheel. I got some lovely goodies. woohooo. Each minute that passed I was more in love with SU if that is even possible. They really
made us feel so very special.
Back to the room my feet were killing me after 2 days of walking in constant heat and I had to look forward to an evening on 6" heels eek!! so for the time being I was enjoying these LOL.
The walls were lined with cream damask fabric, the room was so quiet you couldn't hear any noise at all.
The bathroom next
The door on the left was where the toilet and bidet were, I wish I had the luxury of a separate loo in my bathroom at home.
And the vanity unit complete with a magnifying lit up mirror.
I changed into my swimwear next and headed round the pool for a few hours of relaxation and a dip. I loved that time chatting with the French and German demos while Shelli and Sterling were enjoying a bite to eat at a nearby table. So relaxed and casual.
Ok I will stop now as this has gone on forever.
Cocktail dinner and the last gift next. Till then BIG HUGS xxx
