On holiday in Southern Europe

Is that a cottage on the hill over there?In recent years, myself and boyfriend number 1 have always gone away on holiday for a week together in Southern Europe at some point over the summer. We hire a large private house or villa with it's own swimming pool, sometimes with friends and sometimes on our own, and chill out.

This year, none of the friends that we'd be happy to go away with were free, so we've just come away on our own. And since I'm now on holiday, I'm only able to access the internet by using my PDA as a bluetooth modem. It's painfully slow compared to broadband, so I hope everyone appreciates the effort that's been involved in creating this post!

So where's the nearest gay bar?The two pics attached to this post were taken yesterday. One is the view from the house we've hired, and the other is a view taken from the nearest town. Can anyone guess what country we're in, or for top marks the exact region of the country?

hi gb,
I think you are in Italy, either in Campania or in Tuscany :)

Trevor said...

I'm thinking Central Northern Spain...

It's Bognor Regis!
Oh sorry - Southern Europe not Southern Britain. Er, I give up.

Bah ! Deleted my own comment. Sardinia.

from the looks of that volcanic formation, I'd say Sicily...

Nice choice, if true.

I have no idea, but it looks lovely! Have a great time!

GB said...

Well guys, livingleaver was right! I'm "in Italy, either in Campania or in Tuscany", sort of in between two world famous wine producing towns which are less than 30km apart. With that information, anyone who knows something about Italian wine should be able to identity the towns?

It looks beautiful, I'm a little jeaous. But I'm not too well-travelled in Europe, so I don't think I should gander a guess.

i hope you're having a good time [wherever you are] ... and that you're consuming plenty of the local produce !

hi there!
what about Montepulciano and Montalcino?

GB said...

Wow livingleaver, you got it exactly! We've hired a private house with a pool in the middle of the countryside, and we're closer to either Montalcino or Montepulciano than the distance between the two. If you ask me, I reckon that "Vino Nobile di Montepulciano" is a good wine, but "Brunello di Montalcino" is usually better :-).

Happy to swap links absoluterik, a direct link to gaybanker.blogspot.com works for me.
