city break :: Turin

The boy and I spent last week in Turin, Italy. We arrived on Monday only to realise that their Monday is like our Sunday and pretty much everything was shut. It was quite nice to take in the City when it was quiet.

On Tuesday, we visited the 2006 Winter Olympic site. We were walking back over the Olympic Bridge when my gorgeous man got down on one knee and proposed, it was one of the happiest moments of my life and I was delighted to accept. We have yet to choose a ring but he got me a lovely date stamped ring with 04 08 09 from Nest in Bloom on Etsy.

We spent the rest of the week wandering the streets of Turin and sampling the lovely food and ice-cream on offer.
