Is the pace of life increasing?

Another week flies by as summer draws to a close.

It doesn't seem two minutes since my last post ans here we are, almost a week later.
After a hectic two week as with meetings and events, this week heralded a return to manuscript scrutinising and workshop preparation for October deadlines.
The Long Leg of Italy has been putting its toe in the water with a cover reveal on social media.Twitter @JustUsTwoTravel.
We settled on using red lettering for visibility against the blue skies and other colours in
the photographs.
Just a point about our travels in this latest adventure. They actually span twenty-five years - long before we started jaunting on our beloved motorbike. They started when we had only been abroad twice in our lives and that in an organised party. We travelled independently to the unknown territory of Italy and made our own way to railway stations and transfer by vaporetto and taxi to hotels. Our second trip, in reverse, took us onward to Sorrento further south, but as there was no direct train from Rome, Citalia arranged for us to join another coach they had going there. Our second visit to Sorrento was a stay      and relax and explore one, where again we were completely independent but with the comfort of a holiday representative in the hotel. When you read the book, you will understand how thankful we were for that 'cushion'.

Just a bit about the jacket photographs.

So our story truly does take you down The Long Leg of Italy. The gap in time is when we were jaunting across Europe on our Honda Gold Wing motorbike, including around the Gulf of Genoa to lake Garda and beyond. (Just Us Two: Ned and Rosie's Gold Wing Discovery.
