Our yearly trip to Italy is a compromise, but a lovely one. Left to our own devices my husband and I would prefer to travel further afar, but with small kids that can turn expensive and uncomfortable for everyone, so Italy by car it is until they are a little older.
We started this trip again in Udine, a small city in the northern province of Friuli.
Here are a few impressions…
Udine is not perfume-free of course, I did check out its perfumeries and this time really surprised the husband into admitting that his opinions on certain perfumes are not set in stone.
I sprayed my hand with Serge Lutens Muscs Koublai Khan and to both our surprise it was lovely. Warm, rose-y and softly musky, the cosy smell of a well-loved fur coat maybe. The Mongolian hordes were on vacation apparently.
Then we spent a week in a gorgeous hotel on the Adriatic sea, in the shade of pine trees, slathered in SPF 50 (can you tell I’m not a sun worshipper?)
But we didn’t entirely succumb to mindless beach lounging, check in tomorrow for an account and pictures of our trip to Venice.
