It seems like so long ago since I at the end of June wandered these Tuscan fields in the afternoon sun. The day ways about to say thank you and see you soon as I gazed at this beautiful place before heading back to our Tuscan “home” to change for the dinner that evening.
If only I had a scratch and sniff app to harness the perfume that nature produced that evening… the quiet sound of insects and birds hummed in the background and for one little moment I think heaven was a place on earth;)
It’s not difficult to fall in love with Tuscany, you know it in your heart as you “enter” thae region that you’ll never really look at the world quite the same way again, because now there is Tuscany…
That charming place in Italy will forever haunt you, begging you to return to it’s beautiful embrace and to eat in its company..oh, the food in Tuscany…
This area is where I return to in my minds eye when the summer up here north get a bit chilly and I long for warm summer afternoons wandering among olive trees…
In about one week I’m back in Italy again and even if I’m always a bit sad to leave my beautiful Norway, my feet are not too heavy as I hop and skip may way to Italy with a little grin of happiness on my face.
First stop Milano, then Rome where I’ll be shooting with this fun and talented lady, and then off to Sicily with a slow riding train that will weasel its way down the boot of Italy till it reaches the shores of Sicily.
This is where I’ll board a little sailboat and spend one week exploring islands around Sicily with a dear friend.
So today while the rain is yet again filling up the puddles outside, I think of Italy and how incredibly ready I am for a bit of sun, warmth, sailing and pasta!
But before that all begins…I’m heading out in the rain for an afternoon run along the beach!
