|First sketch of the Italy travel journal.|
|That's my real luggage—to scale! Ha, ok so maybe not, but it kinda|
felt like it until I had to carry it.
|Fig page edge...the fruit is hard to come by around here,|
but they littered the ground outside our door at the villa.
|One of the guest buildings at Cinelli-Colombini.|
|Notes from our tour guide's presentation at Avignonesi. She explained|
in great detail two experiments in planting that were completed at
their winery. No two vineyards were the same on the trip—they
all had their own practices and traditions.
|What happens when you try very hard to draw a straight line while riding|
on a bus? Wonkiness! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
|It tickled me that my morning cappuccino was served to me every morning in a cup with|
Big Ben and the Parliament building on it—loved it!
|Our final night at Cinelli-Colombini we had dinner|
"on our own" at the Osteria di Donnatella (the restaurant
on the property of the villa). Bob very generously decanted
a 2000 Donatella Reserve for each table as a treat. Wow!
|The villa sent us off with a bag lunch for our 5-hour bus ride to the Adige|
region in the north of Italy. There was a yummy dessert bar in there, too, but
I required sustenance for the drawing...ha!
|A rough and incomplete (let's face it, just terrible) map of our short morning|
walk around Trento after breakfast. We went full-out tourist with cameras in
hand to look at the river, architecture and whatever else captured our attention.
|Juice first...wine later :-)|
Thanks for stopping by!
