The second week at host Massimo in Tufara Valle was also very nice and pretty diverse, I had lot’s of time for relaxing, helped with another tour in Napoli this time just 2 Dutch women which was pretty fun, did some gardening, made an onion grow bed and did some more painting.

Finally got my good GoPro rip off action camera, although it was a bit troublesome since SOMEONE put the wrong address on the package………. Luckily Massimo made some calls and had a friend of his who lives close to the post depot go and pick it up :D which I am very grateful for.

The time had come to leave the farm and get back on the road again, which filled me with Excitement a little anxiety and a little sadness. Excited to get adventurous again, the little anxiety about all the things that could possibly go wrong and the little sadness to say goodbye to such great people whom I will miss.

The last 2 weeks at the farm have floated past and to be honest, were not very eventful ^^ But the weather has taken a turn for the better and except for 1 rainy day I’ve had to suffer temperatures of around 20 – 25C, uffff what can life be hard :P
