We rarely get any snow even in winter, so when I started reading about a possible icy cold weather spell after Easter, with likely snowfall, I was extremely sceptical. After all, about a week earlier it was warm enough to be outdoors without a jacket… But the weather forecast was spot on, and I got […]
Nature nurtures, nature calms, nature heals.When I walk in nature and enjoy its beauty, worries fade into the background and temporarily disappear. This has been a tough year, and being able to retreat into nature has helped me carry on. Italy is awaiting a new announcement about new measures that will be adopted on Thursday […]

After weeks of freezing cold and strong wind, February 28th gave us a short break from all that and it almost felt like spring. (The day after it actually snowed.) I am not much of a sea person but I decided to go for a walk on the seafront, in the Trieste neighbourhood of Barcola/Barkovlje, […]
