Welcome to the annual vacation page-a-day calendar for 2018!
The idea was to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary in a new part of Italy we hadn’t yet been to. Xopher picked Sardinia, a large island north of Sicily and below Corsica. Then he changed his mind. I think he originally thought there would be volcanoes or something. But by then I had bought a book and started researching and getting excited about it, and didn’t want to change plans.
I read the books which warned that July and August would be very hot. I forged ahead anyway. I like it hot. HA.
Back in 2005 we went to Ireland in October, because October fit our schedule. Ireland in October was a nasty soggy mess, and I vowed never again to fit a destination to a schedule rather than a schedule to a destination. HA.
I’m trying to say it was hot. Unrelentingly sun-blazingly hot. Whatever – it was Italy! I truly love being in Italy. And Xopher, well, he was a really good sport.
Onward… enjoy how we pulled a good vacation out of 30+ (even 40+ at one point) degree Celsius temperatures…
