IMG_E6149Italy

August 2022 – 10 days

Italy is a country that is shaped like a boot that is located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Perhaps this is why us Canadians were drawn to come here because that is how we pronounce “about”. But (not boot), Italy is also known for its wine regions, delicious cuisine, dramatic coastlines and being home to some of the most impressive ancient ruins on the planet. It’s the perfect place to get out and a boot, or rather, about.

So, with nice weather on the forecast for the weekend, we decided to visit the cabin before the bugs take over for the next few months.
