“In 1990 I visited Italy for the first time, and the highlight of my trip was a visit to Monterosso in the Cinque Terre. I was so delighted to take my husband back to the same place last year, and this photo brought all my memories flooding back. And even better – he fell in love with the Cinque Terre too!” by Annie Welsh, Edinburgh



“Corn hanging from a stall in Florence’s wonderful Mercato Centrale, a feast for the senses!” by Claire Read, Norwich
