I apologize but in Barbados I had some wi fi trouble at the resort,so frustrating when 2 days ago I spent half an hour to write thw blog, reduce the pics and all that, ready to blog and I couldn’t! So… Back to Miami for a few days…but I’d like to show the post I wrote 2 days ago, shall we go back time? I hope you don’t mind!

8th January 2012

Feeling very tired and I start to feel my skin hitchy and a bit burnt from the strong Caribbean sun, but I still love here!!! Shame that tomorrow we are leaving the island,but we are going back to Miami so, it is not going to be that traumatic! Rented a car for the day and off we went to explore the island, we met a tour guide..allegedly…jumped in the car with us and went around with him, on saint Lucy to see were the Atlantic ocean touches the barbadian shores…went to see the goats and the Cowes overlooking the bay, saw the big mushroom rocks where once the sea was arriving inland…left him and lighter by 50 us dollars we went to the east coast and we ended up in a town called Bathsheba, a surfing paradise!!! Love it here so much…shall I let the picture to speak? Let’s go!

Bank holiday weekend and powerboat racing… All over

29 Aug

I had a great bank holiday weekend in Cowes (Isle of Wight), my husband won the Cowes Poole Cowes powerboat racing and what did I do? I got very scared to go from Southampton to Cowes harbour by boat (I’m so scared of speed in water) but I recovered myself quite quickly thanks to a new group of girls I met in the island whom we shared the house for the weekend, great fun, great people and lots of drinking involved! We should say a very big thank you to our new sponsor, Peters and May, global boat transport who’s now supporting the team, the victory of this weekend is for you guys! Now we are back home and unfortunately back to reality, the long weekend  is over, most of my Italian friends are going back to work after the summer break, only 4 days at work  and what are we going to do? Fly to my special wonderland Miami in 7 days… Cannot wait!!! Here we are I have some pictures of the weekend, most of them probably they will be related to the team!!
