should I pack?
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!
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 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
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 find out about Alitalia
