Goodbye hot

and then this…

Ponte a Serraglio

I can’t wait to get away from the heat wave we have been sweating through here in Brisbane.

We have lots of great plans for the next few months in Italy. The garden at Casa Debbio is calling me. I hope it has survived the winter and I look forward to watching things spring to life in the next few weeks.

We are planning trips to Naples and surrounds, Greece, Croatia and lots of days trips in gorgeous Italy. I hope you all come along for the ride.

  5. Hi Debra, sorry was not able to catch up. I was at Cabarita for 6 weeks, then Canberra and then Sydney. Went to Canberra for a special ceremony.
    Will check your pop up when back. Wore your dress for Xmas lunch at Paper Daisy restaurant Halycon House Cabarita. Love Helen.
    Love to see you when it is cooler.

  7. Hi Debra, thank you so much for your informative blog. I look forward to reading all of your posts as they have been so helpful to me. My husband’s mother and father both come from Northern Italy. We are not long back from 3 weeks travelling in Italy. It was really cold, so good! Enjoy your travels.
    We are considering purchasing the family property in my husband’s father’s home town (still in the family but not on my husband’s side anymore).
    I have many, many questions I would love to ask you about buying property, dealing with the Brisbane Consulate and many more too numerous for one comment post. Is it possible to email you direct (if you are willing to answer my questions of course!) Alternatively, I could meet with you somewhere in Brisbane or the GC as I live on the Southside of Brisbane. Hope I hear from you. Kind regards from Melissa Rostagno
