Sluttery Travels: Il Treno de Sapori, Italy

It's Monday morning and I'd like to hide from my inbox and run away somewhere very far away.

I really want to be on a flavour train in Italy. The Train of Flavours is like a little tasting tour on wheels.

You pick your tour (Lake Gusto sounds the best, there's also a trip on a boat), they're all priced at €54. Then you hop on board and you're treated to seasonal wine and lunch from that region, while being whizzed around the Italian countryside in a carriage. Oh please, please whizz me away. I can be packed in seconds.

The trains all start in Iseo, a lake between Verona and Milan (nearest airport is Bergamo, flights can be as cheap as £20), and the tasty tours last the whole day. I'm such a fan of train picnics (and train hotels) that I'd love to see them branch out and do hop on and hop off tours all around the country. I can't quite afford The Orient Express, this is definitely the next best thing.

The rain is pouring down outside and all I've got in the fridge is some mouldy cheese. I'm going to be dreaming of Il Trendo de Sapori all day.
