5/2-5/4 Darley, England

Apologies for the long silence, we’ve been off the grid for the past week in Lake Maggiore. Time to catch up, starting with our time in Darley visiting Nate’s grandparents.

During the day we got a driving tour of the surrounding dales. We received a glimpse into the food and natural wonders of the area which Nate’s family has been for many generations.
