Last Wednesday, our friends Roberto and Antonietta invited us to join them in watching fireworks for St. John's day. This is a big holiday in Italy and the fireworks were spectacular--I think it was the most inventive firework display I've seen. St. John would have been proud!
A brief video to give you an idea of what it was like.
On Friday, as a belated celebration of our 2nd anniversary, we went to Bardonecchia for some quality dining and a hike in the mountains. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing time together! Here are some shots from our day trip.
As we got to the top of our little trail, it started to rain. It was very romantic, taking shelter under a tree and, later, an old stone house.
Castle Bramafram (only open three days a month) and me trying to stay dry.
And to finish it off, tasty little cakes from a great little bakery.
