Girls Roadtrip: Asiago

On Saturday, three other wives and I decided to do a little roadtrip to Asiago. (Yes, it is indeed home of Asiago cheese).

Asiago is only about an hour drive and it was so worth it! It's a smaller town and there's honestly not a lot to it, but I enjoyed the open meadows and cows scattered around. In all honesty, it was like we had driven to Germany or Austria. You'd never even think you were in Italy if it weren't for people speaking Italian.



Asiago view, right by the market.



My lunch: Cheese wrapped with speck( a type of ham from the Tirol region) mushrooms and polenta.



Fence and meadow on our hike up to the WWI monument.



The WWI monument. I have to say I don't know a lot about WWI or the battles fought around our area. Perhaps I should study up.



Meadows around Asiago. I wish I could move here. I miss open space!



We stopped to play on some playground equipment. You're never too old for a playground!



The most awesome Fiat EVER!



This church looks almost exactly like one in Innsbruck. I just love how cute the buildings are here!



Straw people! Of course I had to pose with them.

Yay for girlie roadtrips! I really enjoyed my trip with my buddy -- although I am wishing we had that delish lunch you had!

Glad you all had fun!

The first time I had speck was in Atlanta, of all places--and it was delicious!! My mouth is watering at the thought of it wrapped around cheese. Sounds like an amazing girls' trip! Color me jealous :)

Love the pink Fiat! It almost looks like the Italian version of the Mary Kay pink Cadillac!
