The temperature has gone down, tourists have left, hopefuly fires are are no more, storms have arrived and Scalea has a new mayor.
The heat, the crowds, the birthdays, the visits of local towns all in August from the holiday resort of Scalea
As the temperature rises, we deal with exchanging driving licences and buying a new car. More tourists have also returned to Scalea.
Italy is open, so is Scalea. We also leave Scalea for a night and see 1 euro properties.
Still in lockdown but things are changing. Relaxation of lockdown and hoping to have a bit more freedom that has been lacking for two months.
Our Life Under Lockdown.
We moved to Italy 15 months ago. March 2020 is our experience of life under lockdown. This is my view of what is happening in Scalea, Calabria in South of Italy.
A Second Christmas and New Year in Scalea but Without the Chaos of Last Year. Also starting to learn the language of the country we live in.
Living near a James Bond film set... well maybe or maybe not.
August is a month that is different to the rest of the year so far, Scalea becomes a true holiday destination. There was the August rush of tourists, mainly Italians, mainly from Naples. It’s been an interesting month.
July in Scalea is very interesting as the visitors, events and temperature heats up. How are we?
We visit a different part of Calabria and it is also time for Scalea in Piazza. Oh John's new passport has been on a full length journey across Italy.
