We came across this girl painting at the top of Giardino Boboli and then stumbled across a painting party arriving at Giardino Bardini and it got me thinking about how lovely it would be to go on a painting holiday. Some of my colleagues have gone on retreats recently - pilates, yoga - whilst friends have squeezed in a cookery or wine course on their adventures - and they've all come back raving about them. I toyed with booking a pasta making course in Florence but then decided that time was against us. Have you ever done an activity on holiday? Have you been on a learning holiday? Would you recommend it?
Have a fab weekend. We've got my family coming over to celebrate my birthday and help clear the garden in readiness for the build. Can't wait for Mum's chocolate fudge cake - my favourite.
