One of the most asked question we get from family, friends and complete strangers is "what does an ordinary day look like in Italy (or in Marrakech)?" The obvious answer is that there aren´t really any ordinary days in our lives anymore. In the previous blog post we wrote about what it´s like living in Italy (it’s pretty great!) and now it’s time to share in photos what a day could look like here in our medieval hilltop town south of Rome. Come join us for a day in Italy!

We really enjoy the Italian lifestyle and our days here in Arpino are filled with beautiful nature, great food, nice friends and we also somehow manage to get a lot of work done. December has been beautiful with sunny days and temperatures around 20-22c. Now it is soon time to head to Sweden and the cold for a couple of weeks and get our new Swedish base at Dalarö operational but we will soon return to Arpino and our little townhouse Casa Colle.
