Plan an Escape

Some of y'all know that I have been traveling with my friend Gail for several years now... helping with her 'Great Escapes'.
Gail lives in Atlanta and travels back and forth to Italy. She has spent years doing small group tours to Tuscany... and now to Umbria. Her group tours are so unique and individual, she can help you you decide how to spend your days and your evenings.
She has planned her new 'escapes' for 2011.
I am so excited... these look fabulous!
Her first week is a girls only trip to Umbria~ 'Our Umbrian escape in early May, Assisi, Artisans & Artichokes, will find us in a lovely agriturismo on a mountainside overlooking the town of Italy’s Saint Francis of Assisi.'
Then, another beautiful trip is planned for Tuscany~ 'At the end of May, our Tuscan Escape will take us to the rolling countryside of the Val D’Orcia, near Pienza, the jewel-like Renaissance village. We’ll stay in an elegantly restored historic 13th century villa '
Check out her website for details.

You'll see why we love Italy!
Ciao y'all~
Sandi

Hey, Sandi, I've been meaning to get by here. Oh, you know I love Italy & am so jealous of your trips over there. Lucky you!

What pool? I need to come over to your house! Loving the deck now, but it's still pretty hot out there. Let's get together again before too long.

Sandi, being in Italy this summer, I have missed some of your posts....not enough computer time! Thanks for writing about our Escapes for next year. We're going to have a great time!
