Little holiday in Harz

We went to the area of Harz to get away for a week. Basically the area is a huge nature reserve in the mountains. Absolutely stunning - went to the one peak by steam train and saw the most amount of snow so far (very exciting for Cinzia). Stayed at a lovely holiday resort which had an ice rink and a huge indoor water park (great fun as you can imagine). I must say that Craig's skating skills are sickening!

Our area

There is a lake just down the road and the sea is about 6km away. As you can imagine, Craig is very keen on getting a kyak.

A little warning on our special day

I had the mafia there to remind Craig exactly what he was getting himself into!


We visited Croatia. We stayed near Split which is an old town with a lot of character. Beautiful churches and lovely cobblestone (or marble) walkways. One of the coffee shops we visited does not have tables and chairs outside, you simply sit on cushions on the stairs and a little wooden board is placed between you. We hired a car (Craig's first time driving on the right side of the road - rather entertaining) and visited a fair amount of interesting areas. Also took a ferry to one of the islands and a bus drive to well known Dubrovnik. The weather was a bit chilly being the end of winter but we would definitely consider visiting Croatia again, perhaps during summer.

Our home in Klingberg

We have found a lovely house on the edge of the forest to rent and have made it our home. Our beloved Thai and Shadow are with us, so for now the family is complete. Feels like we are living in a holiday home. We have experienced a bit of snow (very exciting for me - I have decided that snow is one of my favourite things)!

Off to Luebeck

At the end of July we made the big move to Germany. For the first couple of months we stayed in Luebeck on the island in a lovely little three storey appartment. It was a bit too small and we are not really the city living type.

Our special day...

Okay, I know it has been forever, so we clearly have some back tracking to do! Our wedding was absolutely perfect. We had originally planned to have the reception outdoors, but unfortunately it rained and we had to move everything inside. Not a problem though - it was still awesome. Just a relaxing day with family and friends. Craig had us all in tears with his lovely speech and this includes my dad as he said part of his speech in italian (rather impressive I thought). We had a string quartet playing for most of the day - stunning and yes, Shadow was there too. If I could, I would definitely do it all over again without changing a thing.

Snowed Today

We had a rush of snow for about an hour which covered everything in a blanket of white.
