What a lovely day! We, like many others, have been fairly hermit like over the last few months due to Covid but now that Italy has opened up more and the weather is great we took ourselves on a day trip.
We're gradually easing back into normal life so decided on a picnic by the beautiful Lake Trasimeno which is only an hour’s drive from Casa Leana. I really love Trasimeno. There are some gorgeous little bars and restaurants surrounding the lake, boats for hire or you can visit the little beaches that surround it or maybe just take a trip on the ferry. Windsurfing, stand up paddling and pedalo's are also on offer. Such a fun day out.
So we made ourselves comfortable in one of our favourite little restaurants overlooking the lake, got coffees and a pastries and waited for the cyclists to arrive.
We go to watch the Giro every May as it always runs through a town or village close by and this year we were a hair's breadth away from the peleton as it whooshed by. I cannot believe how fast they travel - must be 40mph and they are all chatting away as they whizz along! Leigh has always been a big fan of cycling events and since I met him I've got to know how it all works.
To be honest, I just thought riders were in a big race with each other and it was all a bit boring but, honestly, it is so much more complex and interesting than that. I am now an expert on the subject (well sort of!) and a little bit addicted.
All in all a wonderful day out.

Welcome to my blog...
Just a little insight into our lives here. After eleven years of living in Tuscany I thought it was about time to have a go at blogging when one of my lovely friends said she had received (what she thought!) was an extremely funny text from me, hmmm.. How difficult can it be?!
