This post is really for the benefit of all those who are keen to hear how Cath, Mackenzie and Parker are faring on their European vacation.
Having them with us has been bliss. The ease of companionship, conversation, silliness or just silence that we’ve so missed since being here. The simplicity of falling in step, as though no time or distance has ever passed.
I’ve stolen their passports and plan to keep them hostage as long as I can.
The first days of 2017 have allowed us to share favourite spots as well discover new ones together. It is starting the year with slowness. Taking time to be slow and to enjoy an unhurried pace; hopefully something we can channel into the rest of the year. (Bragg Creek peeps – remind Cath of the importance of SLOW back home at every opportunity!)
The draw to Bellinzona are the three castles in the town. We toured the Castelgrande Castle. It did not disappoint. A place for imaginations to run amok.
