A few days away ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Hi everyone, 

 

I'll be off tomorrow, Friday and Monday as I will be attending a wedding in a tiny village in Tuscany! In case any of you know it, and have any suggestions of things to see there, let me know - however, with the wedding festivities, I will have little time to stroll around, if any at all sweat smile

It's going to be really hot, 35ยฐC and 37ยฐC on the days of the wedding and the post-wedding pool party, which is way too much for me ... any advice on how to deal with the excessive heat and make sure I can enjoy my time in the Italian countryside? 

 

If you need to raise anything to the Community Team during that time, @Marjo will be around; if you send me a Private Message, please keep in mind that I'll pick it up only when I'm back on Tuesday 13th August Smiley Happy

 

I hope you'll all have a great end of the week, and I'll be bringing you some photos back!

 

WaveSee you soon! Wave

So you are trusting @Marjo to single - handedly man the fort? Not sure that is politically correct but I for one have the utmost faith in errr. ...Thoughful

It's a shame you don't have more time in Tuscany. We spent two weeks there a few years back but admit to not knowing the little village you are visiting. It's a beautiful area of Italy with so much to do and see. Especially Florence, Pisa and of course Rome.

Have a wonderful time at the wedding. 

As for the heat, a large hat or parasol and carry bottled water around with you. Light bright tops and shorts will help you keep cool

@jonsie I would have gone another time, but the couple didn't take rescheduling requests Don't know

 

Thanks for the tips, I'll try to pack smartly, and stay hydrated! I went to Rome last Autumn but never been anywhere else in italy so Florence, Pisa, and Tuscany in general sounds wonderful ... I'll have to plan another proper holiday sometime, and I'll make sure to ask you for advice again when that time comes smiley

Have a great time @EmilieT 

Stay in the shade as much as possible. Important to keep well hydrated. If you have a hand held fan take that with you.

@Cleoriff Thanks! The hand held fan didn't occur to me before, but I'll see if I spot any on my way to the airport tomorrow -at 4am by the way grimacing sleeping

@jonsie The closest airport to the village we're going to, Perugia, is reeeeeeally small and only has one flight a day to/from London so the times aren't necessarily the ones I would have picked if given a choice ... I'll be sending you some good night wishes from the South as I leave wink
