What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Delightful views and countryside, well the cooking demonstrations too.

What did you think of your group leader?

Best one yet.  Consumate professional; her preparation made all the difference, she was a mine of local knowledge, very atttentive to the needs of all the group members and great company.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Get to the lovely local ceramicist's shop much better and for some things cheaper than the mass produced tourist fare in the larger towns.  Antonio in the local bar will feed you very well, rustic and lots of it.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Thanks to Christine and the family at the hotel  who put real sparkle in to an already great week, find myself smilling at every single memory!
