  3. Many thanks for your very nice words about my blog, Jacke! I agree with you, everybody should check it out 😉
    And I agree with you also about Bologna. It is a great city and I miss it a lot. But luckily, it is my hometown so I can go back there whenever I want. And everybody should check Bologna out too!
