Marco found out about Mercanti in Viaggio last spring, when he wanted to take me there for a weekend for my birthday. due to prior commitments though, we weren't able to make it. the name means travelling merchants, and it's a vintage and handmade fair held at Castello Quistini, a gorgeous villa in a town called Rovato. it has a spring and a fall edition, in april and october, every year.

ENI village in Borca di Cadore. October, Saturday 10th

i've been wanting to visit the ENI village for a long time. it opens to the public just on special occasions, and i was thrilled to finally see a guided tour organized by Progetto Borca on a day we could attend. 
we rode to Borca di Cadore {near Cortina d'Ampezzo, in the amazing Dolomites} by lambretta.

given the cold and gloomy day, it was kind of risky, but in the end we were able to make a lambretta field trip out of it. 
we enjoy visiting places like this one, that we consider the most special and interesting, even more when we visit them by scooter.

harvest time in the Prosecco hills

even if you don't work in the wine sector, when you live in a wine region, harvest time affects you.
you run late cause you've been stuck behind a tractor while driving to work. everyone at your local bar is talking about sugar levels, acidity, weather. you see people dressed up like scarecrows on their way to the vineyard. and the grape is shimmering, it tries to catch your eye in any way, all puffed up and proud.

autumn. to - do list

i'm fond of lists. even too much, i suppose. i make lists all the time. to-do lists help me staying focused and working on myself. i usually do better with short term list, checking all the boxes. long term to do lists tend to lose their relevancy after some time {i don't even recognize my own dreams when, in december, i re-read the to-do list i wrote in january}. then, there are bucket lists, things i love lists, and more! do you make lists? what kind?

this is the third illustrated autumn to-do list in a row. i love to put all the sweetest autumn plans into that, in order to be excited for the new season instead of being nostalgic for summer.
