Key West Key West…it’s not all about boats!

11 Nov

Race day number 2 and all seem good, haven’t got the official result yet but probably the team arrived third or second…to me a very good result!

I’ll keep all of you posted about….yesterday…it was a nice day, my husband and I went off to the beach, had a lovely lunch in a restaurant just outside the beach and we relaxed for a few hours in the sun, I got so excited looking at the pelicans landing in the water just in front of us, I have never seen real pelicans .. We don’t have them in Italy! Later on we went to the poker run village where lots of boats arrived yesterday for the weekend, what did I see? Boats, boats and boats!!! I’m starting to like key west a bit more… I should only start to find a life outside the pits!!!


shall I sell my smart and I buy this one? 😉

I left my heart on Lake Como….again!!!

17 Oct

Hello everyone I am very sorry but I couldn’t write over the weekend, I left my laptop at home intentionally to enjoy the time on Lake Como…and I really did!!!

My weekend started Friday morning when we landed at Milan Malpensa airport, my gorgeous niece and her granddad where there to wait for me. How lovely to see again my beautiful 16 months old Martina, and her panda of course! After this quick meeting we got our rental car, the same smart I have in the UK, even the same colour and we headed to the lake!!! It has been cold, very cold this weekend and I wasn’t prepared for that, not enough warm clothes with us and I just managed to buy a long jumper/dress…I was aiming to a pair of Christian Loubotin ankle boots but the price tag unfortunately was too high for the Collins!!!  Lots of food, lots of friends around and lots of walking!!! I was so excited when on Friday afternoon we drove to Laglio, I saw George Clooney’s house!! I know I’m such a tourist sometimes but I really needed to see it, amazing villa, but very small and silent town, and I left my heart there again, what a beautiful panoramas around the lake area!

The weekend went down well, apart when I had a panic attack when my friends during the Sunday race flipped the boat…I got so scared! Luckily nothing serious happened and they are both ok, I’m not used anymore to the powerboat racing environment…it was good to be back in again after a while! Here we are some pictures… see you soon again Lake Como!
