|That is where we are starting from: |
Portovenere in the Gulf of Poets
|This fancy boat is taking us to the Island Palmaria. I feel like Sophia Loren...|
(just a short ride, unfortunately)
|That is what you see when you look back. Breathtaking isn't it?|
|Here we get off the boat and in front of us we see Locanda Lorena|
|Una bella Signora is already waiting for us|
|She leads us to terrace. |
Oh, I love the white table cloths and the view is... no words existing for that...
|Lovely fresh fish... did you notice their little teeth?|
|More seafood and vegetables...|
|I think I am having these spaghettis with mussels... and the wine|
|These dishes are seducing...|
|If possible go for a little walk after all these goodies...|
|... and enjoy this view...|
It smells from wild herbs like thyme and rosemary,
the air is salty from the Mediterranean Sea...
|Were you wise enough to reserve a room?|
You'll sleep tight and enjoy the sound of the sea and the quietness...
I hope you enjoyed my documentary on Isola Palmaria. Have a also a look here. The English version is funny... I could not really understand what they want to say... but never mind!
PS. The quote of George Bernard Shaw in English is as follows:
There is no love sincerer, than the love of food.
