How was your weekend? I spend the last two days in Italy in the countryside. In contrary to Zurich where we’re sitting in heavy fog, the weather there was mild and sunny. Besides some shopping, sleeping, eating and taking tons of pictures, we didn’t doo much. There would have been a lot to do, like planting bulbs and weed the patches but since my brother was with us, we used the opportunity to play around with our cameras (he’s really passionate about photography and taught me a few things about my camera, I didn’t know).
We arrived on friday night and had planned to eat pizza but the restaurant was closed for vacation so we had dinner in a rustic restaurant where they cooked local dishes like Pizzoccheri and Polenta. Pizzoccheri are a type of short tagliatelle made with buckwheat and wheat flour. They are cooked along with greens and cubed potatoes, layered with pieces of cheese and dressed with garlic and sage that are lightly fried in butter together. As you can imagine, they’re a sin but truly worth it.
I had a great time taking pictures of the scenic nature with its beautiful colors. Saturday we went for some shopping and I picked up a pair of cute house shoes and two lovely jumper, a velvety and a woolen one. Sunday I persuaded Silvankun to take pictures of me with my fox scarf and the new woolen jumper.
I probably already wrote that but I can’t say it enough: I’m so in love with that fox scarf!

I’ll be back soon with a review and other things
