Defrag continued – Verona
Sitting on a high speed train from Verona to Venezia. Vineyards squeezed into every last available space. For the first time in a week I get to sit down and relax without driving or juggling Amarone and grappa.
Cape West Coast for a week, then Italy for a week. A necessary break from my usual work routine to distill thoughts and strategise which projects get to be approved, which are culled and which go back into the nursery. Change is inevitable, it generally works against the laws of entropy – but is always rewarding in the long run. While I am not considering a career change (yet) from next year I will once again be changing jobs while traveling.
Verona. Built on Persian marble. It was the scenes of Gladiator spectacles during Roman times and progressed to games and tournaments in Medieval times. It is the same marble that lines the streets an supports some of the bridges.
Then there was the wine:
Amarone. Ripassa. Masi. Which leads on to Grappa. Both when following the trail of the grapes from the vineyards and in The evening when drinking.
Verona is also the home of OrthoFix and Truelok / TL-Hex
