Shane and Stormy's Adventures

travels, photos, and family

La Selva Agriturismo

We are at the farmhouse. La Selva raises horses for the Palio, but its main source of income is from tourism. It’s lovely!

This is the entrance to one of our rooms.

      It’s the least she could do since you have to maintain the fort, right?

    my dear, dear friend at Delta is Fran Hale. She is a language flight attendant and emigrated from Italy when she was 13. Take a good look on my FB page and if she is on your flight be SURE to say hello and tell her you are a friend of Jan’s She knows me as Ahern, but we are good friends so even just Jan will do. I hope you are going to have a wonderful time and I’ll look forward to the photos here. <3

      If you decide to go to Spain, go to Seville. I’m on the ferry from Nova Scotia to St John, New Brunswick and heading home from there. I got all my business done in a week, instead of the weeks I’d planned. Bon Voyage!

    Safe travels, Stormy!! Italy is on my future travel list. I was there 40+ years ago while in college. I think I might view it with different eyes this time! Have fun.

    This is very exciting. Jayme and I were there a few years ago and had a private tour of the Vatican, will have to tell you about those adventures some time. Enjoy, eat well, and I guess you better bring wine back for Shane!

    Ah, that answers my question that I posted on FB and was pretty sure you’d never see. Glad you are doing a girls vacation to such a lovely area. Looking forward to the pictures. Keep your fingers crossed; someday soon I will be able to do this too.
