A little bit of Italy

Lovely Sunny Imperia - the 'Golden Beach'.  

The marina viewed on our walk up via three glass lifts, to the top of the town.

A little peek into the lives of Italian folk

The most amazing thing happened the other night.  We were taking our usual trip up via glass lifts 1, 2 and 3, and met a lovely local Ligurian to whom we were chatting on the way.  He proceeded to invite us to show us his enormous balcony viewing the sea and marina and across to the whole coast-line of Imperia-Oneglia and we shared an aperitif with him and had a lovely chat about the history of the area, his very interesting work and all about these very intriguing lifts.   What an unexpected surprise and how lovely of him to invite us into his home.

It looks like you have fun there! I love Italy and miss it a little bit! By the way Noah is really cute and lovely baby!
With best wishes,

Thanks Viktoria! It is a lovely place and we're so fortunate to be able to explore here and to show Noah other parts of the world!
