Bra pulled a fast one on me, apparently, and yesterday reminded me why. A delicious impromptu picnic (next to Roman ruins, no less), a vineyard hike, a bottle of wine in the very village where it was produced, a nap in a park overlooking Barolo, a cheese and wine aperitivo with Giolito and bubbles with friends to top it all off.
Today, according to horoscopes, is the “best day of the year” – bring it on Bra!

It finally stopped raining! So we decided to conquer La Morra… which we thought was worth it for the gelato alone (barolo wine flavor?? puh-lease)… until we went to the wine bank… and met this guy… and I fell in love… and never want to go anywhere else again.

Italia! Maman and Papa Vills drove me over, food was had. We joined forces with Mau-Ma in Barolo wine country, wine was had. Hiking too, maybe too much. Moved into Bra! La mia citta! Where there is so much to do (haaa) that I hardly had time to start my urban gardening! And school starts tomorrow! (And yes, that is “school”)
CIAO CIAO CARLO PETRINI!
