a little film (cortina d'ampezzo)

After Copenhagen, we headed south to hotter climes. The third stop on our epic euromoon was the town of Cortina d'Ampezzo, a UNESCO world heritage site known for being an entry point to the Dolomite mountains. So different from CPH. So different from Iceland.

It's currently pouring rain--like SHEETS of rain, outside my window on the first day of November. I've been watching this little film over and over, remembering for myself Cortina's particular brand of quirky quaint. Squeezing in the endorphins and Vitamin D this town gave us, which Vancouver is short of right now.

Photos and stories to come. For now, join me in watching a land where the Alpine meets Italy, where apple strudel meets pasta. 

For the clearest picture quality, click on the "b+j in:" link below the embedded video to be taken to the Vimeo page. If it doesn't matter to you, watch it here, and enjoy it despite the bit of fuzziness!
