Our Life Under Lockdown

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.

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.

Summer in Scalea

July in Scalea is very interesting as the visitors, events and temperature heats up. How are we?

Someone has turned the heating up.

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.

What a Difference a Year Makes
