Do you ever feel like escaping suburbia to live a slower paced life in the country?
Is there an adventurous spirit inside you that dreams of chucking it all in and travelling indefinitely?
Then this is the book for you!
I recently finished reading armchair travel memoir, One Italian Summer, and LOVED it!
A Sydney family buy some land in Adelaide to live a simpler, self-sufficient life. But to learn how to make it work they take their two primary school aged kids to Italy for 3 months to work on farms under the WWOOF (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) scheme. So brave!!
Mum Pip recounts their experiences in a real, down-to-earth manner that draws you into their life in the Italian countryside. And sometimes makes you grateful that it’s her going through it all and not you!
One Italian Summer lets you experience something pretty cool, which, although you might not choose to do it yourself, it is fascinating to do a bit of armchair travel and follow someone else along.
It’s not all sunshine and roses, but there’s a lot of joy in with all the hard work.
Available on Booktopia here.
