What should I
2-3 bathing suits;
you’re in them most of the time.
Exercise clothes for classes
and early morning walks.
In the colder months, sweatpants
and a jacket for early morning walks.
A better pair of shoes along
with your running/walking shoes.
You can go into the dining
room wearing exercise clothes at breakfast but you are asked ‘to
dress’ for lunch and dinner. At lunch a t-shirt and pants are just
fine. Pack something a bit dressier for the evening. Some of the
Italian women wore eveningwear while others wore a simple black
shirt, an elegant scarf and black trousers. They all looked wonderful!
A spa recipe...
you do not want to eat your eggs boiled or poached, just put two
tablespoons of tomato juice or milk, or water with a pinch of stock
added, in a small pan (preferably nonstick); when the liquid comes
to a boil add the eggs, either beater or whole. You can also add
artichokes, mushroom, zucchini, etc.

Thanks for the
Our sincere thanks
to Barbara Scorza and the staff at Terme di Saturnia for offerring
Journeywoman their very excellent hospitality. We’re delighted to
count them a part of Journeywoman’s International Network!
appreciation goes to Martino Mainardi and Diana Khoury of Alitalia
Airlines (Head Office, Canada) who so kindly made arrangements for
our Toronto - Rome return flights. Journeywoman’s Italian experience
really started as soon as we boarded the Alitalia aircraft. By the
time we arrived in Rome, we had already sampled Italian food and
wine, and our ears were attuned to the sound of the Italian language
as it should be spoken. A first class mini cultural immersion! To
