July has been jam packed. Work flung us from top to bottom then side to side of Italy. Throw in a crammed full holiday weekend trip to Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and you've got a coupla kids who long for little more than a weekend playing homebodies and boy did we do it up right.
Toured the grappa house Friday night on the way north. Spent a sweaty Saturday at Lago di Barcis and exploring Cellina Gorge (hair nets and helmets to boot), followed by an evening at the Maniago Knife Festival (think Gold Rush with fewer folks and more booths all in the home of the Braveheart swords). Sunday we abandoned all adulthood, donned our fall attire, squealed at roadside sheep, laughed our guts out on the alpine coaster, rode the lifts up Piancavallo and hiked a few rainy, chilly miles higher all before hitting up the Viking themed local brewery and the (free!) blues festival a town down the street and fangirling over a fella who's been singing the blues longer than we've been living. @charliemusselwhiteofficial
