Final Days

With great timing, good weather arrived for this one day trip to Portofino.
Its only a short distance away - a breathtaking ride by bus (for beauty, not danger reasons!).
Its TINY!
Just a few VERY upmarket (read b****y expensive) clothing shops (Gucci, Armani, etc) and restaurants.
Want an idea of how expensive?
It cost us the equivalent of R750 for 2 plates of soup, 2 glasses of house wine and a bottle of water.
The picture on the header was taken at that restaurant.
We chalked that up to experience and had a relaxed day there.
We pack tonight, beginning our long haul homeward.
Rapallo has started to feel a bit like home; we have loved learning the Italian ways of doing things, so in that way, it is quite sad to leave.
But oh! how I am looking forward to being at "real" home!

So picturesque.

Yup, that's what you have to do, put it down to the experience and travels.

You really do sound like you've had an idyllic holiday.

@ Mel - Yup, we sure did cough when we first realised. But we didn't want to spoil a perfect day - and who knows if we will ever come this way again!

@ Shayne - its been really fantastic. An unforgettable time. I was saying to DH, you know you are a great match when you live in each other's pockets for 3 weeks and still loving it!
