Castagneta Carducci

What is getting away from it all... about? Is it the blue skies? A very welcome sight to us sun starved Scots. It is the glorious sunsets? Living on a west coast gives us some tremendous setting sun scenes. Is it peace and quiet? Or are we looking for a more passionate lifestyle?

I asked myself all of those questions recently when staying in the beautiful hamlet/town of Castagneta Carducci, Tuscany. I love blue skies and particularly love blue-sky thinking. Perhaps however it pays to keep an open mind for the beauty of a grey sky and the promise of rainy days! Yes I can assure you it does refresh the soul as well as the ground. And as for the sunsets! Here on the west, it always feel that the sun is having a party and we are invited guests.

And I choose both the peace and quiet moments of serenity in the countryside far away from the traffic as well as the laughter and passion that abounds with the compulsory Italian gustatory experience. One just can't help enjoying oneself... just like our strap line and heading. Life's a journey - enjoy!
