Buona sera everyone. Almost without warning Sunday evening has crept up on us just as we were getting used to the weekend. Oh well it could be worse, the weather is great, the summer is in full swing and there's lots to look forward to. As always happens at this time of year the island is filling up on a daily basis and we're now just 10 days away from the very epicentre of the busy summer. August 15th is officially known as "l'Assunzione di Maria" (The Ascension of Mary) but colloquially it's Ferragosto to most people. A large percentage of Italians take their holidays on the weeks either side of that date and with Ischia being one of the main destinations for them it makes for a busy island. A quick look at the forecast for the coming week shows plenty of sunshine and temperatures between 25°C (77°F) at night and 30°C (86°F) in the afternoons so proximity to water is very much the order of the day, be it your hotel pool, one of the thermal parks, the sea or even your own boat. I'll be back with another update soon so until then - Ciao :-)
