Just got home late last night from 2 fabulous weeks in sunny Italia. While the rain was dancing on Ireland we were basking in mid 30's - total bliss! It was our second visit to the amazing Union Lido Vacanze resort in Cavallino which is a short ferry ride from Venice and we had such a relaxing time. We spent our mornings in the pools, afternoons lounging around the mobile plugged into our ipods with our books while the kids happily played in their brilliantly run kids club. Then we would stroll down to the beach for an hour or two catching the waves. Later after a bbq most evenings we took the kids to the Baby dancing club where they danced their little socks off 'til the sun went down and then we had some yummy Italian ice-cream or a cool glass of vino while watching the many entertainment options provided by the resort (musical production of Chicago, ballet show, gospel singers, string quartets..the choice was endless). I really couldn't recommend this place highly enough - the epitome of chill! So much so that we have booked again for next year!
This year I outdid my record of 1,000 photos so you will have to wait until I do some serious resizing to see how we got on!
