Spring has definitely sprung here in Rome. I hear the birds chirping away outside of my my window, I have been lingering with friends over coffee in my sunny piazza cafe and my vegetable guy has piles of agretti and strawberries for sale. It is a wonderful time of year. Usually by now I have all of our summer plans figured out. I am a planner by nature. Plane tickets bought, apartments rented, meals planned out. Not this year. We know we are going to the states at some point with a wedding and a high school reunion dates to work with. I am pretty sure there will be a week on the Amalfi Coast sometime in July. But nothing is booked. Part of it is waiting to see what Noah's summer plans are and part of it is me being just a tiny bit more relaxed about things just working out. One destination I am really looking forward to visiting soon is the island of Ponza.
I have just finished writing a guide book that has of all of the places I loved when I was visiting the island last year. Since I designed the book mainly for use on a Kindle paperwhite device the book does not include very many images. That really seems like a shame because Ponza is ridiculously pretty.
So here are some pictures for you to enjoy. I hope this inspires you to start planning your own trip to this very special island.
