This month has predictably started in a less than pleasant way. Here I was thrilled to have passed a winter without getting sick, ready to ride out the good fortune until Spring and yes, that’s where it went all downhill.

August events in Florence, Italy

I blinked and suddenly August has arrived, the strange month of July or #nosummer as the twitter trend seems to be liking these days, is finally over. Everyone loves to complain about the weather but I think we all have done enough whining to last a lifetime.  Truth be told it’s been a fabulous month for me, lots of interesting work opportunities, a birthday surprise trip to Puglia (post coming soon) and cool weather.
