August

So it's the second day of August, typically one of my favourite months in Naples. This is becasue everyone b*ggers off to their holiday homes. Well, this is how I remember it being a few years ago. Now it seems like people are finally starting to be a bit flexible on the holiday front so some go in July, some in August, plus I think that many people "only" have a few weeks holiday rather than a month or more. This means that today, on the second of August I still found myself sat in traffic :( Fingers crossed the city will be emptier next week. After that it's Ferragosto which is the week when most things close so at least that week should be nice and quiet.

I know, I know, I'm in the wrong place if I want a quiet life, but just for one month, is it too much to ask? ;S

Hehe... no it's not too much to ask :)

With vacation time and Ferragosto, you should get a little peace soon :)

It might be odd, but I also love places where I can get a mix of busy and sometimes peace...

I love August in Rome too. I don't understand why everyone insists on going to the crowded beach at exactly the same time each year. Even if I had a beach house, i'd rather be there in June or July when there are no people. To each their own I guess.

Farfallina, yeah I'm predicting next week to be much quieter :)

Kataroma, that's just how I see it. September is a nice month to go to the beach/on holiday too. Last year I went to Procida at the end of October. It was beautiful, still hot and not at all crowded.

It's the miracle of parking places that grabs me.

In NY it was being able to get a reservation at any restaurant you fancied.

I don't think it's too much to ask. There is nothing wrong with a little peace.
