This is the period of the year when everybody get sick! All the members of my family have been sick, and I´m the last one trying to cope with a terrible flu… After more than a week of pain in the body, a soar throat, lack of voice and headache I could not resist any…

Some Christmas magic in Lanzo…

The first Saturday of December you’ll find this beautiful Christmas market in the little town of Lanzo. Unfortunately I didn’t have much time to visit, since my son had to reach a birthday party. But he did get time for a short ride on a donkey! There were 5 lovely donkeys  in service for the…

Cioccolatò 2018 in Torino and truffle season!

Cioccolatò 2018 is an annual chocolate festival that takes place in the center of Turin during autumn time. I am a bit late writing about it, but I just want to share my experience about chocolate and truffles this year. We passed by the chocolate festival a late Sunday afternoon. It was cold and rainy,…

Winetasting with the Norwegian group in Monferrato

During the Erasmus+ period we went twice to Monferrato to taste some of the world`s greatest wine. Me and my colleague Roberto had some fantastic days and adventures with this funny group.

Visiting San Domenico by feet

Last Sunday we went to walk in the Alps with two other families and their children. The destination was a small church called Santuario di San Domenico on the mountain top. We had to drive to Cantoira Fraz. Rù and then follow a nice trail towards the top. It was quite steep, but you only have…

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…

A long ride to “La Madonna della Neve”

Since my son was still by the sea, I chose to enjoy my free time with a long ride to an amazing place: La madonna della neve! I started out from Mathi this time, to meet Andrea further down the track. First of all we took a long break in a small village called Rocca….

A short and stunning visit to Apricale

I’ve actually been back from the seaside for a long period, but I would like to tell you about the small town “Apricale” that I visited during my holiday. I didn’t even plan to go there, it just happened! A Norwegian friend and her Italian husband have got a flat in the neighbor town of…

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…
