We are lucky to have family in another country to be able to spend our vacation visiting them and enjoying a different culture. We recently made a trip to visit the farm vet's immediate family in England. While there, we went to Italy to visit some of my distant cousins. In college, I studied for nine months in Italy and keep in touch with our relatives. I am very proud of being American but also have a deep fondness for the Italian culture. It was wonderful to finally introduce the farm vet to my cousins and show him around the beautiful Piemonte region of Italy. The food and wine is always amazing and never gets old! Each morning we had fresh cheeses and meats with a cappuccino for breakfast. The Italian's appreciation for food is wonderful to experience. Here are some fun photos of the trip.
