Local Artisans that I adore ~ Donata Zan

Well, what a whirlwind this past month has been for me and my little family. We have been sick for the past month and finally I got answers to why my son is always so sick with the help of a private doctor, that being said, I wasn’t able to be online much as if any of you who have children know that when they are sick, you don’t have much free time and when they finally sleep,well you are pretty destroyed too. 

Anyhow, I did have a chance to have a tea break with the lovely Donata Zan, owner of Acqua di Vetro.
The lovely Donata Zan :) Captivating beauty!

Asolo ~ The Pearl of Veneto

For the longest time I have been wanting to go and explore Asolo. So many people have told me it’s one of the most charming cities in the Province of Treviso..

Asolo is known as “The pearl of Treviso” and I must admit that after spending the morning exploring this quaint town, I too agree.

Here are some photos of my adventure in Asolo.

I think exploring towns is best in the low season.. We went in the Winter and there was barely anyone around.. We had Asolo all to ourselves. And the weather couldn’t have been any better.

Gorgeous day!
