Reaching the forties with joy….

Just think about it… about 100 years ago most people didn’t get past their mid-forties at all! Today the 40s it’s the new 30s, and this means a lot of new opportunities. And I must admit it. I´ve never felt more in shape than during the latest years! Last Tuesday I became a member of…

Just another nice ride in the hills

After the rather exhausting ride from Lanzo to Ca Bianca, the ride to our favourite restaurant in Cudine was just relaxing! It’s not only my favourite restaurant. It’s also my favourite track in the hills. You hardly need to touch the asphalt, there are so many trails in the forest! The ride from Mathi to…

What is a swag?

After going trekking I’ve started to look for a swag. I got to know this incredible invention during my stay in Australia. It’s actually a tent, mattress and sleeping bag all in one – that you can just roll together and bring with you wherever you go. I’ve found a site where they sell the…

After the trip on horseback

You might be asking yourself what I’m doing now and what I’ve learned from this horseback experience. Well, just after getting back home I went to the seaside. I needed some time to rest and to stay with my son. We are staying in a small town in Liguria where the pace of life is…

Children need nature and animals!

Not only horses are trying to teach us to live in peace with the nature. Also children have the need to explore a natural environment. But it’s unfortunately quite common that adults don’t listen neither to children or animals. They just keep going down the chosen track, regardless what happens to those depending on them….

The travel must come to an end!

I’m gonna wake up quite early tomorrow morning, to grab the plane from Kristiansund to Oslo. The travel has come to an end… I’ve seen a lot more of Norway than after one of my usual trips back home. I’ve met old friends that I hardly ever see and I’ve met new and interesting people….

A new start – or back on track?

Do you remember that I was writing about taking a course, learn something new etc? I ended up getting so confused about the different alternatives that I dropped it all! I’ve been thinking about dog grooming, pet therapy, Parelli and riding instructor. But I’ve realized that I’ll probably spend more than I’ll earn afterwards… but…

Turin – the City of Contrast

After spending a snowy (!) day in Turin, I just realize how many contrasts I met on my way. I’m talking about places and people… It’s seldom snowing in town, but in these days we’re expecting the cold weather from the Siberian parts. It was nice to go into a very elegant bar called San…

Ready for a change

This year I’m actually turning 40, and it’s time for a change. I think it’s now or never to choose a new career path! Today I’m in Turin looking at different courses. I’ve realized that taking a course might be the right way to find a totally new kind of job. Hard competition Finding a…

Back in Italy for New years eve!

After a very relaxing week in Norway, I’m back in Italy – just in time for New years eve. We arranged the party in my mother in law’s basement. In Italy many people have a “tavernetta”, which is an underground dining room. Since she is seldomly using it herself, I think it’s nice to keep…
