Italy 2016: Pavullo nel Frignano Photo Diary

Ciao ragazzi!

My apologies for going dark but we have been working, and now traveling non-stop since my last post from Bologna.  While in Pavullo nel Frignano we primarily labored, but were able to photograph our experience in bits and pieces.

Pavullo nel Frignano is a unique and incredibly special town in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.  Although off the path typically traveled, I highly recommend a visit!  The hills surrounding Pavullo are breathtakingly beautiful and smell of sweet, herbaceous blooming Elderflower at all times of the day.

Without further adieu, here’s a photo diary of our farming experience!

Neighboring Benedello is just up the hill.

One of my favorite houses in the area, the beautifully maintained property of Diana.
