Sometimes you’ve got to take a step back and enjoy the view. Continue reading #SuckItUp

I was not 100% sure I would be able to come out alive, but here I am to tell the tale! More than anything, this post is meant to celebrate friendship. I was lucky enough to work with a wonderful friend who went to university in Geneva with me and with whom everything became easy, even working for a full day with an early start (7 AM!) … Continue reading Work work work… and friendships, and love
Wedding: #tbt My wedding day was perfect, because I knew it would be. I was going to marry the man of my dreams, my one love, The One.

My wedding would just be perfect. And it was! But we did have glitches. So here comes my very personal list in 6 points (plus 1) on how to survive on that very … Continue reading Throwback Thursday
So, we’ve travelled, we’ve run…time to get back to work now, at least for one of us! Today, we are in a scorching hot Tuscany (near Grosseto) to FestAmbiente, where Chiara is working as interpreter for Philip Lymbery, author of the book “Dead Zone”. Continue reading Back to work…one of us at least!
