Bongiorno Lausanne!

It has been over a month without blogging! I am finally back in Lausanne. Sorry, I have been busy taking a long and well deserved summer break and just returned from our Discovery Expedition in South Africa.

Our 3 week break was spent entirely in Italy, driving from Venice, all the way down to the Amalfi coast, past Naples. It was glorious! We were able to spend quality time together as well as indulge in everything Italy has to offer: fantastic wine, pasta, pizzas, seafood, art, ruins and last but not least, crazy drivers! I must say, we really enjoyed all parts of the break, we were able to get back into "normalcy" for a few weeks and really enjoy each others company. We experienced farm stays in Tuscany, roof top pools in Umbria and fancy Amalfi coastal towns. That is one of the reasons why I love Europe; just a few hours away lies a totally different culture to explore and learn about, simply amazing.
