"Fénis from Marsan", Aosta Valley, Italy

"Fénis from Marsan", Aosta Valley, Italy. 18x24cm, oil on wood panel, $280.

No, that's not a misspelling. We made it to God's Country, the Alps! Such an amazing change of landscape from our mostly Mediterranean adventure. We took a train from Moneglia to Turin so that we could rent a car and drive up here. The train was delayed from the beginning... Then got delayed more along the way. We thought we where going to have to stay in Turin for the night b/c Europcar said they'd close at 6:00. After some debate we decided to take a taxi to the office even though it was 6:10. This would of been our first detour and missed schedule if they where not there. Not bad for 2 months travel we consoled ourselves. A few nervous minutes later, Julie ran from the taxi and checked the door. Locked.... But then they buzzed her in. Whew! 1.5 hours later our Fiat Panda rolled into our friends time share with this view. Sweet victory!
