I’ve been scooting around Holiday World in Dublin – quite literally.
And stopped off to see my friends from Topflight www.topflight.ie, the Italian specialists.
It is the quintessentially cool thing to do to ride a scooter in Italy… a la Roman Holiday.
As the organisers set up with this video.
And if you pop by the RDS today check it out and take part in the competition.
Driving a Classic Fiat 500 around the French Riviera is pretty cool too.
Only I got stopped from doing so on my trip to Cannes… find out why here The Boat D’Azur.
Now asking me to say which part of Italy I like best is like asking me to pick my favourite figlio.
But I’ll give you Puglia where Giotto painted his own ceiling which predates and tops the Sistine Chapel.
Sicily was my first entry point into Italy on a day trip after I had got engaged in Malta.
And showing off, as I used to be prone to do, I ordered our meals in my schoolboy Italian from ten years before.
Only to get back a plate of cheese!
What about this Top Flight deal for Sicily which is on my radar this year?
Seven nights B&B at the 4* Hotel Ariston with return flights from Dublin for Saturday June 13.
With a saving of €100 which means the holiday is now €1,049.
Treated like a Celebrity
Even if you’re a Celebrity, or especially if you’re a Celebrity, you should treat everyone with class.
And that’s always the case with Celebrity Cruise with whom I sailed around the Bahamas.
On the inaugural voyage of the $1bn game-changing Celebrity Edge.
And here is Celebrity’s Head of Business Development Michael English who grabbed my hand warmly as I walked by.
Michael knows me of old and knows I love the Celebrity and cruise lifestyle.
So he was not in the least bit surprised to see me with cocktail in hand at 12noon.
With up to 75% off and today’s special starts from $499pp, departing March 30.
And if you want a further recommendation then let’s relive life on the palatial Edge… I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out To Here.
All hiking aside, and I know I’m tempting fate here, but I’ve yet to be arrested in America.
Not when my cousin gave me the wheel before climbing out of his car onto his roof and back in the passenger seat.
When we were 16 in New York!
And here I’m going to take to the American highway for the first time since then this Spring in the Florida Keys.
Not even when I picked a fight with a Colombian in a Boston YMCA four years later.
Or when I stood in the kerb, drink in hand in West Hollywood, last year.
Among too many other indiscretions in between.
These guys though at Visit USA www.visitusa.ie always look after me and they should be your first port of call.
And because my good pal Greg Evans who represents Philadelphia so finely for the British and Irish scribblers is here… for the beer.
American Holidays www.americanholidays.com has Philadelphia and Las Vegas from €979pps.
Two nights Philly and five nights Vegas, travel in November.
And I’m sure I’ve told you…
I’m heading back to Vegas in May… so is it the same again, Cami?
