"Everywhere you go, always take the weather with you", or so the song by Crowded House goes. Unfortunately in England, this means you're all but guaranteed to become cold and soaked during the winter months.
However it wasn't all to long ago that we came across an end roll of beautiful cashmere and pure wool polka fabric. Right then we purchased all that we could, and set about buying some more... Our tip off (the suited man at the haberdashery) claimed it was Italian.
So we hopped in the car and set off for Italy, and ten hours later we were close. Or so we thought...Another day of directionally aimless traveling later, we found ourselves inside the walls of Lucca, Tuscany. Funnily enough, we ended up caught between lunch and a raincloud with no sign of being any closer to our initial goal. Yet somehow everything seemed quite O.K.
Here's what we learnt:
Europeans drives faster.
Do what speaks to you.
Most of all; enjoy the journey, the process of finding out that finding 'it' probably isn't what you were really looking for
