Why I Live in Ischia #2

I'm really into numbered lists lately, so here's another one. My days at work exist among these scenes so one can imagine why it's hard to leave...

(If you'd like to see Why I Live in Ischia #1 scroll down to to the post entitled, RRRRRICCI!)

If you need any clarification, please feel free to come and visit :)

Hey Tracie.

What kind of camera do you have? It takes such cool shots.

Are you going to stay in Ischia throughout the winter or go back to Napoli?

By the way...can I come live with you? :)

Not that I needed persuasion, it's not like I thought Ischia was hell on earth... but like Janice would say with a shrieky voice, OH-MY-GAWD! I have to get there some day... there's no chance of being able to make it on the upcoming trip (although we will be close!) but some day... *gasp*

Beautiful pictures of Ischia!

I've always wanted to go there...I've heard so many great things about it.

But then again, there is so much beauty in Italy, it would take a lifetime to see it all!

Thanks for sharing

Dear Tracie
My wife and I are considering living on Ischia to work in animal welfare. Could you help us by letting us know how best to find a property on the Island? So far our 'Googling' has proved fruitless!
Best wishes, Michael

As a teen, I spent summers in Ischia and I can't wait to get back. In fact, I wrote a book set in Ischia - Piece of Me - coming out in Spring '08.
