3 months later

1st August 2012: 3 months after the start of my new life.   ‘What are you doing now?” This has been the most frequent question I’ve been asked, closely followed by “What are you doing now, exactly?” and far ahead of “How’s the feet?

Hot & cold

Hot & cold

Version 1 “Geg, did you ever walk barefoot on the snow?” “Suuuure!” “I did it once and was cool, let’s do it?” “Why not?” There we were, an Austrian and an Italian taking shoes and socks out, in a warm end-of -April day walking in the few snow left by the winter.
