Ischia is a short hour and a half ferry trip from Bellevero or Pozzuoli docks in Naples. On sunny days you feel all the hassles of travelling to Italy from the UK melt away as you sit and watch the port receding and the wake of the ship in the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean. Once there, sipping a caffe latte in a cafe overlooking a small beach, I found inspiration in a group of Italian women, putting the world to rights and enjoying the sun on their arms and feet in the sea. I identified with these older women who, like me, care about comfort these days and so are happy to let it all hang out.
