Italians on holiday up by 3.2%

Just heard this on the news. I guess it’s a good thing, seeing that we’ve been taking little trips here and there whenever the opportunity arises. The big question is where do all of these italians go when it’s time for the summer holidays, apart from visiting relatives way on the other side of the peninsula? My brother-in-law took his family to visit Monument Valley, our neighbors went to the Bahamas, and some of MotH’s colleagues have flown across the pond to somewhere in the states.

Unless it’s to Hawaii, we pretty much stay within 1 or 2 day’s drive from home. Last month in Provence, the woman in the room next to ours stopped us while we were on our way out and abruptly rattled off in italian, telling MotH that she knew there was another Italian around when she heard him talking. Without losing a beat he replied “sì, siamo dovunque!” Yes, we are everywhere!

    Happy Ferragosto! We will be camping and experiencing the solar eclipse in the Pacific Northwest! Not to close, nor too far from us, yay! We will include some friends from Italy to enjoy it with us:-)

      I hope there’ll be good weather for the eclipse. I was thinking that my brother-in-law and his family would be there for the show, but I believe they fly back (from SFO) on eclipse day itself.
