life, travel

A little Italian flavouring…


As the road carved its way through France’s Auvergne region, the landscape was a blend of Tuscany’s rolling, green hills and Austria’s lush meadows.

Even a few splashes of Spain, for terra-cotta roofs dotted the landscape, sprinkling the scene with a little Italian flavour.

And as Lyon drew closer, ragged cliff faces framed the road, before giving way to bridges spanning across vast valleys, where cows grazed, and random poppies peered across fields.

In the distance, mountains stood tall against the horizon. Scatterings of past winter snowfalls lingered steadfast against the spring sunshine.

Europe: always a celebration of colour, culture and diversity.
