Here are just a few pictures from three days in Cortina last week - my mom and I went back to sort and pack and ship the things that Ryan and I left there last season, which was slightly overwhelming (the post office didn't have boxes, first they couldn't ship to the US and then suddenly they could, we had to use loads of tape to cover the writing on the boxes because no writing was allowed.....etc.) But! In the end, everything got shipped off.
It was really nice to be back in Cortina, and as you can see from the picture above, the weather was insanely beautiful. We took lots of packing breaks to sit in the sun. Ryan unfortunately couldn't go with me this time, but it was so much fun to see our Italian friends from the past four years - and to be able to eat delicious Italian food again! The first night we went straight to our old stand-by, Cinque Torri, for spaghetti carbonara with zucchini....
....and we also got into the casunziei which is a regional specialty.
Every lunch and dinner we had was so good. When we weren't packing or at the post office (which we were most of the time) we were able to spend some time visiting with friends and walking around town. I love living by the sea now that we're in Scotland, but those mountains!!! I never get sick of that view.
Then we were off to Paris! More on that tomorrow!
