As our one return flight per year for our family (I've written numerous blog posts on flying less and how important it is to combat climate change) we booked a trip to Piedmont in Italy so we could go to a friends wedding. It was absolutely beautiful there and this is my cartoon of the … Continue reading Italian summer
