The MediterraneanRecently, a few friends and I have been talking about visiting Italy. I've never been there, but it's next on my list. I long for the wines of Tuscany and the shores of the Amalfi Coast, all the sites, the history, the people, culture, food and wine.
I found this poem, and it makes me want to vacation in a Mediterranean villa even more. Let's just pack our bags and go! :)

I have a favourite sea,
it is bottle green and turquoise at the edges
and indigo where it is deep
where it laps the shore there lies treasure
Provence, Portofino, San Remo and Ibiza
magic, sun-ripened places from Heraklion to Barcelona
the richest, sweetest of soils
lands of olive groves and lemons
sweet lands by a sweet sea
an azure sea encircled by a ringlet of opals.
