…. blog posts that is. Let me tell you, working and living in two countries doesn’t leave much time to blog on top of it. Facebook still rules ! Sadly……. because writing articles, however short, on a a blog is more fun. But also sadly, Facebook has a much bigger ‘reach’ and my posts there get more views than all my blogs and sites together.

Anyway, we have been in Italy again for over 5 weeks and returned to the Low Lands a week ago. We intended to stay here till half October and then head south again for the olives harvest…. however, Dad suddenly got much worse, with a tumor, and is now in hospital. No idea when we are able to leave the country again, certainly not now !

In Italy we arranged another bunch of things; finally managed to get us a local bank account, after trying to get into an on-line bank failed miserably. And we found a (Romanian) mason who is now working on restoring the front entrance and repairing the little wall containing our electricity and water meters.

We also applied for a permit to build a terrace in our yard, with a ‘portico’ over it to get us some much needed shade in the Summer. Well, that will be NEXT Summer.

We also had a kitchen installed and a REAL bed, and entertained our first visitors too; the kids came down to stay with us for some 10 days !

Last but not least we trailered the GS to Pomonte and did our first local rides! We left it in good care of a neighbor while we are back in Holland.

This time my camera DID work again AND I had some time….. so I took some 3000 photos….. to be shown over time.

More news when we have it…….
