- In stock online
When Tonia Parronchi's husband, Guido, told her of his plans to buy a boat and take her and their baby sailing, she had her reservations, but she soon came round to the idea and has never looked back. Nor has their son, James, who despite his early seasickness has grown into a young man who truly loves sailing. Travel with them through weather conditions that destroyed the myth of a gentle and forgiving Mediterranean, and such varied experiences as high seas, violent storms, stuck anchors, marauding mosquitoes, and severe sunburn. Visit idyllic, secluded bays and places of sublime beauty, unreachable unless by boat and completely untarnished by tourism. This book is filled with humour and reality, and a scattering of delicious recipes too. A feast for your senses - and perhaps it will inspire you to step on deck, too, for your own watery adventures! About the author: Tonia Parronchi was born and grew up in England, where she obtained a degree in English Literature and History. After working in the travel industry and in fashion, she moved to Rome, Italy in 1990. She now lives in Tuscany with her husband Guido and their son James.
