Presenter description: Juila Kalytis.
November’s Ballina Networking breakfast speaker Julia Kalytis has been going to Italy for thirty years and has lived and worked in Rome and Sicily.
Although she’s a busy Shiatsu therapist with clinics in Alstonville and Kyogle, she still finds time to go to Italy twice a year, and now she is taking us with her!
She certainly had our full attention as she outlined the thinking underpinning her unique 15 and 16-day Live Your Dreams tours.
The ‘Classic’, goes north from Rome to Florence, and on to Venice and the ‘South to the Sun’ tour heads south to Naples, Capri, the Amalfi coast and Sicily.
It really is something different because the maximum number of guests is only 8 people!
Moderate cost, an unhurried pace and bijoux accommodation are part of her priorities.
She said: “The aim is to be fully present for the experience, to feel connected, to really taste the food and the wine. That’s where the nourishment is. It is important to be able to get the ‘feel’ of a place, because it is from the small things that the precious memories will come.”
Sounds marvellous, doesn’t it?
