This will tide you over...

Unfortunately I do not have time to write an elaborate blog about my recent adventures Wwoofing here in Sicily, but I did want to poast a few pics with brief explanations. I must say, I have felt more alive in these past few weeks than I have in a very long time. I only wish I had all of my family and friends here to share it with me. I guess Curt will have to do for now :) I love you all and MISS YOU!

My last weekend in Ireland Curt and I went with a friend, Tricia, up to Northern Ireland. This is me next to the Giants Causeway. I took so many pictures of these weird little rock formations. You can't see them as much here, but I thought I'd give you a quick shot of what ol' Halskies is looking like now-a-days :)

Our last day on the farm in Ireland, Curt and I played on the trampoline with Rosa. She cried when we left, and we were very sad to leave. We will return to our friends in Ireland for about 1 week in the end of April before we return to the states.

This is the farm and the rolling hills of Tudia, my current farm in Sicily. It is so green, quiet, and expansive here. Everyday I look out and cannot believe how my life has brought me here to this moment. I am so grateful for it.

These are all of the Wwoofers breaking from work for lunch. It was a big happy family of 4 girls and 1 guy from Vermont, 1 Belgium guy, 1 French guy, and Curt and Myself representing Seattle. Now the 5 Vermont folks have taken off and it is just the four of us guys, I must say they are incredibly fun to be around.

A dinner with the hosts (pictured at the end). Salute! Cin cin.

The view I wake up to every morning, and the vineyards that I am currently pruning, pulling, and tieing to the trellace system.
Curt on a hill hike. We just about take one everyday:)

Thats about all I have time for right now. In 1.5 weeks Curt and I will move to another farm near the coast of Sicily and then we must plan out a way to pissibly visit my friend Steve in Morocco. I miss everyone and trust that even though I am having a very valuable and rewarding experience abroad, I often think about those in my life that I love so very much.


ps-check out the website of my current farm,

Wow! I'm sure you have a bunch of amazing photos like these. I can't wait to see them all. But mostly I can't wait just to see you. Be safe and continue to have the time of your life!

My gut reaction was to say simply FU, but I'll be more cordial and say I'm glad you are having a nice time and it looks really rad there...

you bastard.

Kale Iverson said...

I second that emotion. I initially thought you bastard but I guess I'll be brotherly and say I'm happy you are having a good time it looks really awesome there.

So I recently got caught up on the all the adventures and it looks like things couldn't be going a whole hell of a lot better. Abby and I miss both of you guys! Give Curt a big wet one for me.
