Girls Just Wanna Have Sun

Sicily may be at the bottom of “the boot”, but it’s so high on our “exceptional places” list that we needed an encore email. We have Sicily on repeat (kind of like a favorite song). It’s been a week since we wrapped up our first 2022 Sicilian tour. We had a brilliant group of women explore this stunning island with us…they’re still lighting up our group chat: bonding over the fun of it all, and plotting for “next time”. In fact, I heard the whole group wants to do another tour with us next year! It brings me serious joy to see beautiful friendships emerge from these vacations. Not to mention, returning clients are like stars on our own Italian Fix dreamboard. It tells us that we’ve done an excellent job, and frankly, that gives me the warm and sunnies. Last week we showed you photos of our group walking the Baroque streets of Ortigia, wine tasting, and sipping prosecco in Pollara as the sun melted into the Tyrrhenian Sea. We had lunch at the home of a real, honest-to-goodness countess! But– hold onto your sunhat–there’s more! We bumped into a recognized celebrity swordfish marketeer at the Syracuse market, discovered overstuffed cannoli, and basked in golden rays aboard a private boat tour. Toe-dipping in the Mediterranean blurs the edges of awake and dreaming. It really is exquisite when you’re living the dolce vita RIGHT NOW! Wanna live it too?

We have two more Sicily trips scheduled for this September. Choose from September 2-10 or 11-19, 2022 (both are co-ed). Reply to this email for more info.

Italian Fix in Sicily

This week, we’re giving you an insider’s view of what traveling with us is like in Sicily. Yesterday we wrapped up our first 2022 tour with a group of women touring this stunning island. One of the guests was doing this tour for the third time! Letting other people (us) do the planning for you while you soak up life in the slowdown are what dreamboards are made of. Judging by the photos our guests have been sharing, highlights of the tour include: watching the sunset in Pollara with a glass of prosecco; wine tasting; walking the beautiful streets of Ortigia; and lunch at the countryside home of a real, honest-to-goodness countess. Don’t ask about a favorite moment — it’s too hard to choose just one! We have two more Sicily trips scheduled for this September. Choose from September 2-10 or 11-19, 2022 (both are co-ed).

Sardinia, Salina, Sambuca, oh my!

Planning an epic adventure is the opposite of just spontaneously rolling into weekend plans. An epic adventure takes time to research, it takes dedication to the process, and of course it takes creativity to pull it all together. A few years ago I imagined a bite sized adventure — I wanted to do something I’d never done before. And that was sailing in the Med. I had never actually been sailing and I didn’t even know if I would like sailing (I was worried it would be too windy. I know that sounds nuts!). I was deeply curious about seeing more of Sardinia. I grew up on an island and I just keep getting drawn to them. So I moved ahead with it — made some calls, spent a lot of time online, asked people who knew more than I did, and put in on the calendar. One week sailing in Sardinia and Corsica with my best friends. Check! What I found on my trip is that Sardinia and Corsica are next level — so many beautiful beaches and inlets and pretty villages along the coast. Want a bite-sized or epic adventure in these parts, too? Whether you swim (yes, people actually SWIM between Sardinia and Corsica, and these people will help you), sail (like I did, and these people will help you do that), or just hang closer to the land, Sardinia (and Corsica) absolutely do not disappoint. Epic adventures — I dream for you to have more of those!
