Our Italian Escape

Recently my husband and I escaped to Southern Italy for a few days to stay in a cave hotel. We arrived in the dark with very little idea of our surroundings. Our cave was everything we expected it to be and more!
I wanted to bring this bath home with me!  The cave was lit by candles and was warm and cosy.
The next morning we woke up to the most amazing view and sunshine!
We breakfasted in an old church
And then set out to explore the town of Matera and the surrounding area over the next few days and evenings. Just leisurely strolling around admiring the architecture, looking inside churches and eating locally produced food.

We had such a wonderful time that I really didn't want to leave!  As I work part time in a school, as a librarian, we could only fit in a short break during my days off because I am unable to take time off in term time. I love my job, but as my husband and I want to travel further afield, this restriction has become an issue. This week I handed in my notice on my job of 15 years!  I'm still a little stunned, but I am consoling myself with the fact that we have already booked our next holiday! :) Next year we are off to The Maldives! :) I don't think any of it has sunk in yet!
