... We then made our way back to Monza train station and after saying goodbye to Anita and Michel, we caught the train for 2.5hrs to Tirano. Tirano is 10mins away from Brusio which is where my Great Uncle Roberto and Great Aunty Ilaria live- we stayed with them for 3 nights. Arianna their daughter (mum's cousin), picked us up- she's so sweet, apparently she'd come an hour early because she was so excited! I was super excited to see her ...
... as this winter has been very mild. The view from the house is incredible! The house is cute and old fashioned with a wood oven and an outdoor fridge. When we got home, we were picked up by Ilaria and taken back to the house where we got ready for dinner. Arianna took us to an amazing pizza restaurant where I had my first beer since I've been on this trip - it was so good to have a break from wine haha.

The road I am now on I have travelled a few times in the passed and is yet another great motorcycling road ...
... windy and cool day, but the sun was shining so it was very enjoyable. It felt like Fall today. I haven't experienced Fall since we moved to Nevada. It's always been my favorite season. We have Fall of course, just not the same feeling, temperature or color change. It's kind of fun over here too because they decorate just like we do for the Fall season. They put out bales of hay, pumpkins and colored leaves.
