Barb Minemier – Holistic Health Coach & Wellness Guide
We are so excited, to once again, invite you to join us on another adventure through Italy. This time the Tuscany region. As some of you know I had taken a trip with my family to Italy five years ago.
While we had gone to many cities, the best part for me was staying with our cousins in a small town outside of Lecce. We were immersed in the culture and traditions for five days and I loved it. I got to experience first-hand the life of a local. Their backyards were filled with fig, lemon, and olive trees. They had all their vegetables planted too.
When preparing dinner they would go outback and pick what was needed. A neighbor dropped by and left some homemade cheeses for us. Everything was fresh. They even took siestas in the afternoon. I was in awe of the simplicity with which they lived.
I still remember Benny, Jo’s cousin, telling us one night “if the seas are calm tomorrow and my friends go fishing we will have fresh fish for dinner.” Jo, asked Benny, “if they don’t we can always go to the store right?” Benny replied, “Never!”
As a Holistic Health Practitioner, I was in awe of their way of life and wanted others to share in this experience. We both believe that our food, our pleasure, and our connections with people and places, along with deep relaxation are the foundation of wellbeing. This is how our trips were born and we’ve been at it ever since. Read below what some have said.
