I am more than a bit excited about my holiday. Tomorrow I’m going to Italy and will be staying in a remote area of Tuscany which is insanely beautiful. Also I’ll be going back to my favourite restaurant (probably in the world). It’s a small family-run pizzeria which does the BEST PIZZA EVER as well as some lovely pasta and salads. The village is on the top of a hill and the view from the restaurant’s outside seating area is amazing.
I’ve been packing today. I have to fit most of my stuff into my hand luggage as I’m sharing the main luggage with four other people (stupid easyJet baggage charges). I’m taking some skirts and tops that can be mixed and matched, plus a few summer dresses that fold up pretty small. Add a couple of vintage scarves and some red lipstick and a capsule wardrobe doesn’t seem so bad after all. Sometimes I enjoy having the choice taken away to some extent – I won’t have to think too long about what to wear.
As I’m such a big fan of pointless lists and misguided creativity, I decided to make a list of the most important things to remember, which I can use for future holidays too (see below). I made one of these back when I lived in Leeds and I remember my housemates thinking it was a bit mental. It was fun though, so what the hell. I realised I forgot to write ‘bikini’ on there, along with a few other things (which I’ve already packed so it’s okay!) I’m not a big swimmer anyway but there’s a small pool so I might have a bit of a paddle and do some miniature lengths.

I’m going to be without internet access for the whole time which I’m really looking forward to as I’ve been online too much lately and it’s a distraction from a lot of the things I want to get done. My phone won’t work either – I might be able to receive the odd text when I leave the village but other than that I’m going to be pretty cut off.

Back in early July. Ciao!
