A month in Piedmont and the Cinque Terre reinforces the perception that I am blessed to live in Australia and specifically, Adelaide. I love travel and will continue whilst ever my body and money permit. I have alluded to the book “The Art of Travel” by Alain de Botton and I read it at the beginning of my 3 months trip in August 2012. It is insightful. Read it to help pass the tedious 12 hours as you jet to Europe via Dubai. At a very basic level the scenery that appeared before me on a bicycle in Piedmonte is equalled on my cycle trips in the Adelaide Hills.
Then of course at the start of the month of October the Norwood Outdoor Pool opens!
By Spring the Bees are busy and I have a hive in my garden!
The Crabapple at the front of the house is in bloom and an orgy of blossoms and bees!
Then of course by November its time for me to soak my FRUIT for the Christmas Cake!
