Our third and final week in Italy saw us fly to Sicily to meet up with some of Mr Wanderlust’s school friends. And what a week it was!
These lovely chaps happen to have lovely wives and lovely children so we were excited to spend a week catching up.

How and when to do Rome
We went in mid June which was probably a bit too warm but that was just how our dates worked out. If we could have had the choice (we are sadly now restricted by school holidays), May or October would probably be ideal.
As we only had one full day, the only way to see everything that we wanted to see was to do a tour. Read more
In a desperate attempt to be more organised I am researching what we to do in Italy. This is in no way me procrastinating over the packing that awaits me upstairs… Well maybe not too much! At least I’m being productive… Read more
