Time is ticking and I only have another 3 weeks left in Australia! I heard today that I thankfully do have summer work in Italy but that it will not be in the lovely Taormina which is where bel ragazzo and I really wanted to go.
Times are tough world wide with this financial crisis and my company have cut the summer workers by more then half. Yep, that's right. A lot of my colleagues are without work in the summer season which is usually our busiest time. Our British customers just aren't buying enough holidays and I don't really blame them since the sterling is so very low. Italy is expensive enough as it is, and with your currency being weak then you may not be able to have as much of the dolce vita as you would have liked.
So I happy to announce that I will be employed, with the bel ragazzo by my side and we will be spending the summer in the rather tourist infested resort of Sorrento. It could be worse. I could have been sent back to Rome! We can now at least go out and about exploring this fantastic region on our days off...but the main thing is that we are together and we have a job.
These are some pictures of our soon to be home.
