A Whisper On The Mediterranean
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 the family 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!
