So where exactly is Le Marche you ask?
Well, that’s the number one question friends have asked us when we describe our trip to Italy. The Marche region lies on the east coast of Italy, between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. So if you drive from Rome towards Umbria and hang a right just before Florence, you’ll pass through Le Marche on your way to the coast.
What you’ll find is a region comparably ‘untouched’, borrowing the best of Umbria’s rolling hills and juxtaposing it with a long coastline of white sandy beaches and fortified coastal cities.
*Sigh* even weeks later, I still feel a hint of that warm Italian summer air.
Mark had never been to Italy, but I had many years ago. I thought I knew what to expect, but honestly, even retreading old footsteps felt like a new experience with perfect weather and a husband to share it with.
First up was Rome.
Happy first day of my favourite time of the year everyone!

I hope you’ve all had an amazing break over the holidays and had a chance to relax, contemplate and hit the snooze button at least a few dozen times.
Keeping with tradition we spent our break soaking up as much sun as possible in our home state of Western Australia, dividing our time between family in Perth and Denmark (a small town about 5 hours south of Perth).
There was plenty to see in Perth, with new arrivals from friends and family to welcome, and this year we had the chance to share my home state with one of our closest friends, Aoife, whom was happy to indulge us with a personalised tour of some of our old haunts.
My parents are finally back in Perth, retired and looking relaxed, and as their house is just a few minutes from the stunning City Beach, that seemed an obvious first stop.
