A couple of weeks ago Mr S and I had the pleasure of attending a good friends wedding in Ischia, a lovely mountainous island, just off the coast of Naples in Italy.
We arrived in Naples and then caught a ferry over to the Island, it took about ninety minutes but it was lovely sitting up on the top deck, soaking up the sunshine and meeting up with other wedding guests. We arrived at the picturesque port just as the sun went down.
Our hotel was ‘The Griffo’, a sweet little hotel with a lovely pool area and helpful staff. The rooms are a little basic, but clean, modern and very reasonably priced. They also run a free shuttle to the port.
The next day was the wedding. I had a total nightmare with my outfit. I tried on the dress I was going to wear the night before we left, and the dry cleaners had shrunk it (definitely nothing to do with my lack of gym action lately ;)) so I packed a backup dress that I really didn’t want to wear and hoped I would find one at the airport. I couldn’t believe I did, and managed to get a hair flower and wrap too, how lucky was I? You’ve got to love airport shopping.
