1750m Above Sea Level

IMG_5894IMG_5902Oh dear, it’s been another one of those long silences for my blog. I’ve lived in Rome now for about 18 months and I’ve only posted a minuscule amount. Embarrassing stuff.
I could tell you about how I’ve had the best intentions to keep posting here, but the fact remains, I haven’t posted a single word for eight months. Instead, lets take future posts as sporadically as they come and for now, enjoy some snapshots from a trip I took last month to the North of Italy. IMG_5896DSC_0218DSC_0222IMG_5903These photos were taken up in the clouds on Monte Grappa where you’ll find a military memorial monument. As you can imagine, it’s one of the most tranquil places I’ve ever visited and the history of the spot forces life’s contemplations and deliberations upon you. IMG_5904IMG_5906IMG_5913IMG_5971IMG_5975I was lucky enough to stay with friends in a beautiful house in the tiny village of Fietta. Venturing out to the mountains or the neighbouring town of Bassano del Grappa in the daytime, we spent evenings clustered around the fireplace indoors or making pizza in the wood fired oven outside. At one time the villagers would bring their own bread here to be baked, and the toasty room above was even used to put up those in need of a bed for the night.
