The teeny, tiny town of Volpaia, Chianti

If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.

The Secret Garden

We were here on a work trip as part of the Identity Division and I managed to capture this delightful picture of Dreama. If you want to learn how to paint or bring more color to your life, check out her site here.

Volpaia can be a small stop along the way on a lazy day around Tuscany. There are two small restaurants in the town that provide simple, fresh fare. Smile with the locals and go find the abandoned buildings along the way.
