Yesterday morning we woke up to a snowy gale: roaring winds, furling snow and freezing temperatures... The snowflakes completely covered the ground and it was so wet that instead of digging or pruning, EmJ and I rode in the tractor scoop and hauled stones.... Read more >

More of Italy - a migration to Tuscany

ITALY | Tuesday, 26 Feb 2008 | Views [542]

Testing... One, two, three; sound check- is this thing on? Well, we haven't left yet so there really is no point doing an exhustive post. But I will say this - stuffing your life for six months into one pack (one and a bit if you count the removable ... Read more >
