Welcome to my blog. I live in sunny Naples, the fascinating and exhilarating capital of the Mezzogiorno, with my family and children. I started this occasional blog to record life in this amazing city and our travels around Italy.
I blog about things that catch my eye, including food, culture, art, style, music, history, politics (and cars), and try to look beyond the stereotypes of pizza, pasta and crime.
I like to travel around the country, practice my Italian, meet new people, take lazy boat trips out on the Bay, visit the islands, have extended Sunday lunches, drink caffè lungo, eat Italian pastries and learn a little about this often overlooked area.
Thanks for dropping by and I would love to hear your comments about the blog or your views on this great city that, like that English delicacy Marmite, divides opinions sharply.
