MOMENTS IN THE TIME OF PANDEMIC - NO. 8

And as for relaxing in a room with strangers! This was something we had never considered to be a luxury before...

For us, physical contact with our families is still a long way off as they live on another continent. Strict lockdown ended last week, but we skipped the first "unlocked" weekend as we did not know what to expect. On the second weekend we decided to venture out and visit  a typical bier café, a real treat in Amsterdam. This was our first venture out since March. The masses of tourists have not yet returned to Amsterdam so it was possible to walk in and get a seat, even with fewer tables so as to respect social distancing. We have not had a good draft Trappist beer for over three months. Such a pleasure. And as for relaxing in a room with strangers! This was something we had never considered to be a luxury before. People watching is such a fun past time not to be taken for granted again.

MY CORTONA

MY CORTONA WAS DUE TO BE LAUNCHED DURING EASTER 2020. UNFORTUNATELY, FOR EVERYONE, COVID 19 MADE AN APPEARANCE.


Our blog had been intended as a central hub for Cortona lovers world-wide, bringing you useful information, profiles of the many interesting people who live & visit the town, up-dates on local news, special stories & upcoming events

With the world still reeling from the pandemic, we have chosen to suspend some features & have decided instead, - at least for now - to bring you a limited version of our blog by introducing a series called MOMENTS.

We would love you to contribute!

We also thought that in the absence of an imminent visit, you might enjoy a little Local news and a few Tips for (future) Trips
We look forward to seeing you soon!
