I have just returned from a brief trip abroad to Morocco in the company of some real nice guys who had done a house exchange. Through a house-exchange club they had swapped a week in their luxury Rome home for a week in a fabulous beach house in the ancient medina of Asilah.
The weather was fabulous, beaches empty and company superb.
Some years ago when in Marrakech I had thought of buying a house and starting a boutique hotel in the medina, however I am so glad that I did not and instead came to Umbria.
A great and much needed holiday, but it is so good to be home here at Bellaugello where in my absence building work has been cracking on a pace.
