Afternoon folks. It's been a bit of a topsy-turvy Tuesday so far on the weather front. This morning the conditions were faultless - no wind, no clouds and no waves but since then we've seen a few cloudy spells and even an unexpected shower that lasted about a minute. Looking into my crystal ball (ok, Google then) the situation for the next few days is a little bit unclear - tomorrow looks like it'll be a repeat of today with a mixture of sunny and cloudy spells while Thursday is looking a bit mean and moody. Today's photo comes from Ischia Porto, the place where most people start their Ischian Odyssey - actually there are people that say some of Homer's book was set in Ischia but there's a lot of conjecture about this and very little in the way of evidence so I guess we'll never know for sure. On the subject of literature, one thing that is certain is Ischia's link with the Elena Ferrante "Neapolitan Novels" a series of books starting with "My Brilliant Friend" where the main character growing up in Naples then spends time in Ischia and returns again in later novels. There's also a TV dramatisation of these books that saw filming on the island take place earlier this year. As soon as there are any trailers for that I'll post them on our Facebook page. Anyway, with the potentially changeable weather for the next few days remember to keep an eye on our Ferries and Hydrofoils page for the latest weather snippets and apart from that I'll be back with more soon. Ciao :-)
