Life In Ostuni – One Month Later

So we’ve been living in Ostuni for a full month now. We love it. It’s great being closer to a larger city (seriously, Torre Dell’Orso was small!), the house is pretty great, we LOVE all the land we have and so does Dakota. This month has been a lot of getting settled. Learning about the… Continue reading Life In Ostuni – One Month Later

The Italian Food Situation

I’m soooo hungry.  We’ve been in Torre Dell’Orso for about a week and a half, we’ve been out of America for about two weeks, and I’m basically surviving on bananas.  I didn’t eat at all in France because we were dealing with getting off the plane, the animals, the driving issues in Dijon.  I had… Continue reading The Italian Food Situation
