29 Nov Paradise is made of salt

Paradise is made of salt. It has pink washed flamingos with long wings tipped in black. It is covered by marshland, Mediterranean hot climate bearing vegetation, shallow pools of clear seawater and a network of loam paths that lead you till nowhere. There's a vastness composed of silence and raw gemstone colours. Your eyes plunge into the milky rose alabaster and the fire-ignited...

07 Nov A lady called Barberina

Hidden in a piece of land called Grave di Stecca in Valdobbiadene, Northen Italy, surrounded by a vineyard, lies a small gem, a XVIII century villa named Barberina.

21 Jul Hello Valdobbiadene!

RUSTICO, MINERAL LIKE THE BRIGHT SUN  "Golden, persistent and crisp.

30 Jun Celebrating southward migration

Most people think of Alentejo as a harsh, rotund desert. Where temperatures rise way above the 40oC on a mid-summer day and the ground itself has nothing to offer except dust and rock solid earth. What they can't see is that this land is one of generosity, one of grandeur in everything that it owns, one that gives all that it...
