#riseandshine at the castle!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

#rise and shine

The spark challenge I'm choosing to participate in for April is to exercise 10 minutes every day. 10 minutes, I can do. Also, I figure if I start an activity, I may not want to stop after just 10 minutes. It can only be good, right?

April 1: So far so good! I walked over 10,000 steps (after that the pedometer broke).
We went to explore a small medieval town and castle, battled monsters, hunted for dragon's eggs and climbed to the highest tower to rescue a princess!

The day after Easter is a holiday for kids here in Italy and a historic castle in the town of Groparello organized an interactive show for the kids. It was very well orchestrated and my son loved it. I'll tell you what though, being a knight is exhausting.




And for those of you into medieval times and/or flower arranging, I took a picture of the great hall centerpiece.

It's simply apples speared into foam and bay leaves. It was so fragrant and simple yet elegant. I'll be doing this for my next dinner party.

    What a gorgeous place (and a fun way to exercise!)! I loved the apple arrangement too, very medieval looking.
Thank you for sharing!

    Ya know, I never thought about castles in Italy, but it makes sense! One day when I visit, I'll have to look one up! It looks beautiful!
