Italian Odyssey 5: Feminine Leadership 5 Day Workshop: Yikes the food!

I used to go on quite a lot of retreats in the past.  About six months ago it occurred to me that I would no longer be able to participate in one of my favourite retreats.    Why?

It has become quite obvious to me that when I mention that … [Read more...]

Italian Odyssey- Part 2

Jeepers have I been having some adventures here in Italy and now the UK. I now really know how hard it is to eat travelling if you can't afford to eat at a restaurant and can't cook for yourself.

They aren't vegetarian but I guess for them meat is … [Read more...]
