Am I missing something? I didn't see the B&B in the 19 images that came up with the link.

I loved the pictures, expecially the last one, the portico at night. And Scott's descriptions have me howling.

ooh exciting, i am loving your report. Love finishing off the day with a glass of bubbly!! Hope the calamari is recovering!!!

we did our own little jamie oliver style dinner "jamie does italy" last night, his vongole, tirimisu and prosecco.....i was feeling quite chuffed (the tirimisu worked and was honestly the best i have tasted!!) but now am jealous of not being in Bologna!!

On other thing.........

<<It was affordable, very tasty, and we were able to eat outside – three things we often struggle with in London (especially the last)>>>

..........we have found a place in london that is great for this. Its called Bar Remo just off Regent street on Princes street. It is our little slice of italy in london (even had the big projector showing italian TV football station-which i would normally hate, but here it feels in place!)

tasty-big tick!!
affordable-big tick
outside eating- medium tick, about four or five tables so get there early.

Its seriously great for late night last minute place or for a nice lunch. We only go there if we have been out with friends and fancy something tasty on way home at like 10pm when it is still buzzing and the service is very good.

Delightful to follow you both again as you travel. When I saw the title of this thread, and that you were the OPs, I felt almost the same pleasure I feel when on my way to the airport

And so far,the TR and the photos do not disappoint. Grazie.

Really enjoying your posts, Jamikins and Scott, you describe everything in a way that makes it really interesting, and funny at the same time. Sorry for your bidet experience, I'm not a fan of it either, now I won't trust one for sure!!!

Now that you have described your short stay in Bologna, I can't wait to visit the city soon, we are often so close and always end up skipping it.

Looking forward to reading more.

why on earth not? is it unmanly to want to have clean underwear?

are you saying you don't wash your undies, or just that you wouldn't admit to it?

Umm, annhig, I think he was referring to a different kind of 'smalls' if you get my drift.

Haha Annhig!!!

Just popping in while we have wifi with our delicious wine!! Cooking class yesterday was amazing and the countryside here is just stunning - good food, lOvely people, sigh...

Unfortunately this rural paradise lacks connectivity haha so I am on my iPhone again and I think the soonest we willbe able to post using the laptop may be a couple days away...

Scott wants to reassure everyone that the calamri is fine with no lasting consequences haha!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!
