One of the really fun things about blogging is meeting readers. I walked into the bar across the bridge from my Bagni di Lucca apartment and a gentleman approached me and asked if I was Australian, then, “Do you write a blog? Are you Debra? “
He was with his wife, the blog reader, and 2 other friends from Australia staying in Lucca and because of the blog decided to spend the day in Bagni di Lucca……and then I just happened to walk into the bar as they were having a cool drink on a very hot day. Here they are.
I hear Australian accents wherever I travel….we get around!
I have met lots of people in the village who have come because of the blog. Sometimes when I am watering the plants on my balcony a car will stop below and a head will stick out of the window and I hear “Hi Debra, we read your blog.” I love it!
I had coffee with a fellow blogger yesterday. Melonie is from America and has a house in Crasciana and we have been missing each other for years, but finally caught up.She writes a blog called From Tennessee to Tuscany.
Blogging makes the world even smaller.
Did I mention that it is hot here? Yesterday the temperature was well over 30 degrees….too hot for me. Some children took the opportunity to have a swim in the river below my apartment. I really felt like joining them, even though the water would be freezing since it comes from mountain springs.
Take a look at Bella Bagni di Lucca to see the wonderful archery competition that was held in the grounds of Villa Ada on Sunday….there is a handsome knight involved.
