Old doors of Italy – Saluzzo:
I would say as a pair of shoes defines a character and style of a person the door of a house does it as well. You see what it went trough, if it is well cared, it´s age …

Here some nice examples which I saw in Saluzzo, Piemonte – Italy some weeks ago.

Valle Maira – Maira Valley hiking:
We just came back from hiking in the Maira Valley / Valle Maira  a forgotten jewel and rediscovered luckily. It´s often revered as the a black spot in Europe be-cause of only 2 inhabitants per km2 but it is recovering from that status. Before and after the WWII the area was more and more abandoned and houses and land were left behind. The Schneiders a german couple found this jewel around 1980 and with the help of some extraordinary personalities from the valley they founded the Percorsio Occitani a connection of treks and posto tappas (shelter and some of best food + wine on this planet).

We met great people there, had a glimpse into a forgotten culture had great food and wine and will for sure continue this amazing experience within the next years. The combination of extraordinary trekking, culture and good food (wine) is just too unique!
