Travelling to Italy in 2022

I'm so looking forward to boarding my Singapore Airlines flight and heading for Rome in the middle of April.  We have three tours scheduled in May (Sardinia; Naples and Campania; and Sicily) but first I'll be re-walking a couple of our self-guided walks, starting with the Amalfi Coast (yeh!).

The historic Norwood Institute, Adelaide

Norwood Institute, Norwood Parade | Flickr User denisbin

A Norwood and Stepney Institute was formed in 1855 by a group that met in a schoolroom in Beulah Road, Norwood. Lectures were soon advertised and a library of 200 books organised.

The following year a different group met in Mr Barrow's old chapel in Kensington for a similar purpose and proposed an amalgamation with the other group.
