A relaxing weekend in Italy

I highly recommend the lovely home from home in Monforte d’Alba: Il Grillo Parlante, enjoy the lovely food and wine of Piedmont, the dolce far niente and excursions to Alba, Asti, Dogliani etc.

We have a fig tree in our garden, after years of being barren it carried fruit this year and I was able to make some mustard fig.

Memories of a lovely day trip to Val de Travers




2016 in pictures: November Japan
My daughter and I spent this month traveling to Japan and Australia. It was unusually warm in Tokyo, we missed out on the gorgeous colouring of the leaves but had a wonderful time nonetheless.


2016 in pictures: Australia
Forgotten are the long flights, we have made so many beautiful memories visiting relatives in Cairns, Australia and making a short stop on the way back in Perth.

I am grateful for all the lovely memories made this year, gratitude to all who have made me laugh this year, thank you for your friendship, I enjoyed my walks in nature that help me to stay grounded, going to the local farmer market and trying out old and new restaurants, regrets I have a few: for not getting everything done on my list, for not posting more regularly but hell, more days are to come!


2016 in pictures: welcome 2017!
Very much with Madonna on “f**ck off 2016”,

welcome 2017 with a big leap from Roco!

  1. This is beautiful Barbara! You capture the moments so eloquently, if that makes sense!
    I’m so with you in bidding 2016 a swift adieu. May 2017 be better, please!
    Happy New Year my friend!

      Ah, dear Lori, you catch me in a very morose moment … but it gave me great pleasure to assemble the pictures of 2016, so much to do, so little time. Did you notice all the nature pics – they make me feel so good and grounded! Poor Roco, he has been very patient today and now he deserves a big walk!
      Out with 2016, in with 2017!
      Thank you for your friendship, dear friend!
