Whisked away to... Verona!

What a lucky lucky girl I was, early on Saturday morning we hauled ourselves up, me excited to go away but tired. And then at Victoria we met some friends who were joining us on our mini adventure and were off on the Gatwick express. We left a very cloudy grey Gatwick to arrive in a scorching Verona, a city I have never visited before. And what little we managed to see of it was lovely.

After lunch we hopped in a taxi to our hotel, again no idea where we were staying so to turn up to the below driveway I was excited to say the least...

And then we walked into this entrance hall, wowee! And we were at the Byblos Art Hotel, just outside of Verona. Another post to follow on the hotel, we spent most of our time there!

@anna - it was a fabulous trip, one we won't do very often! So all the better...

@Cate - I couldn't agree more, but then I am biased :)

@Babypicturethis - The hotel was divine, lots more to come! (probably too much...)

@Julia - It's one thing I love, that to travel for a few hours one can be so far away, different culture, language, food.
