Living like a local in Le Marche

I have had a great month. I spent a wonderful week living like a local in Le Marche  . With it being such an untouristy area I finally got chance to use my Italian. So many times in places like Florence  and Rome  I have tried to speak Italian but as soon as they realise I am English they speak English back. Ascoli  Piceno was a beautiful city to explore and as for the Sibillini Mountains I shall return as soon as I can to  try out some of the great walks.  From our balcony in our little  hill town we had the best view I have ever seen. I would certainly recommend Le Marche if you fancy somewhere different away from the crowds.

 I also visited Stamford where they were holding a Georgian Festival. Recently voted the best place to live in the country it is a beautiful town with   a great deal to offer .

At the end of August I did a couple of walks in the Lincolnshire Wolds which are featured in my article in the November issue of Country Walking magazine.

I now have plans to visit Milan, before Christmas and in the New Year I am off to Rome and Florence.
