Well I've done pretty badly on the blogging front for 2012. On the other hand, I've had a pretty exciting year so far. I am still putting projects in motion to simplify life.
This summer, I had the priveledge to travel to Italy with my daughter Solange. We visited the town where my grandfather was born. We both fell deeply in love with the Montferrato hills. Why this is a relatively unknown part of the Piedmonte in north-western Italy, I'll never know. Gorgeous, gorgeous scenery (see pics above). We then travelled east to La Spezia, Porte Venere, and our final destination, Tuscany. Italy has fabulous and diverse countryside.
