Morning folks! It's not a morning that's going particularly to plan though with some unexpected rain (my least favourite type - I'm more of a fan of the overnight variety) making its unwelcome presence felt. Conditions are expected to stay like this for most of the morning but this afternoon promises better. Speaking of the weather, I wanted to point out a new feature on the website. If you go to our ferries and hydrofoils page you'll now find regular weather snippets of the true situation. For example, the Google weather app this morning told me it was sunny outside when a cursory glance out the window told a completely different story. So if you need to know the current conditions keep an eye on that page. I also created a couple of other pages in our Travel section yesterday. Two of the questions I get asked the most are "how to get to Positano from Ischia" and "how to get to Amalfi from Ischia" and there's no short answer to either question. There are basically 4 different options depending on the date, the time of day you want to travel and whether or not you'd like to avoid buses or taxis. We get so many people that come to Ischia as part of a wider tour of the region including Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast and Naples so hopefully those pages will be of use. On a personal note - I did download the Raiz album as mentioned yesterday along with another one from the film Passione where this type of music is heavily featured. If you're looking for haunting, doleful melodies then look no further. In fact these are the perfect tunes for this rather gloomy morning. To finish on a brighter note today's photo comes from the port of Lacco Ameno and we hope to see this type of sunshine by the afternoon. Back soon. Ciao :-)
