    All visitors to this region of Italy must try the local Grappa...

    In the Chiese Valley, locals flavor Grappa with Lemon Verbena . It can only be found in this region of Italy and is called Persighina. It has a fantastic lemon herbal aroma and a smooth flavor...very very nice. If you can find the homemade kind, jump on it. I brought the recipe back with me (along with a bottle) and plan on making some soon.

    Applejuice often is mixed with kiwi juice which gives it it strange colour....kids did not like it much and as you can see at hubby's face, he don t think much of it either (or was it cause he had to pay for drinks which weren t drunk?)

    We drove through the mountains along Valtenesi lake and found this restaurant (hosteria).
    Our middle child was feeling poorly and that s why we stopped here.
    Besides, I needed a break! driving through mountains isn't my favourite way to pass my time.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    Haha one thing I hate is watercycling! Am far too lazy!! but since I got kids who wanted to go on the water I had no choice but giving in.
    One positive side effect was we all were rosey from the sun..

    Favorite thing: Hubby of course had to have his own paper and I found a magazine I liked, but after we had payed, we were shocked by the height of the bill ... more than double as we are used to! omg!
    On the photograph you can see the shop we bought it, was the same all thru the part of Italy we stayed in.
