Bits and Bobs from Home

Christmas is gone by now, a new year has started… but am still on time to post some Christmas pictures right? I was home for Christmas. Home is a little village in the Italian Alps called Carano (no one knows it, don’t worry if you never heard of it). Home – the village next to it (which you might have heard of, Cavalese) – is a place where Christmas is taken seriously… We’ve got Christmas trees, yes trees. Not just one. Lots. We’ve got lit up snowballs and reindeers at every roundabout..

We’ve got a Christmas crib projected on the Church façade and a crib in front of the Church….

But home (back to my village now) is also a very snowy place, very very snowy…

…and looks more or less like this for about 5-6 months a year…

…or like this when it’s sunny…

Nice huh?

If you’re thinking of visiting it on your next Winter holiday & want some more info just visit the official website http://www.visitfiemme.it/winter or ask me.  (They didn’t pay or ask me to advert their website or the place, am just doing it out of my heart because it’s a very lovely place to visit).

  1. Lovely place. Never been to Italy during Winter except one time when we were in Rome in November. We weren’t prepared , they said it was extraordinarily cold so never been back during Winter. I’d love to explore more of the North next time. Thanks!
