Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.

Some information on the Dolomites

Image result for dolomites

Camille has gone there for a month, as an au-pair, she is discovering a beautiful place. She has already gone walking at an altitude of 1324 m and did not complain! 

So where are the Dolomites? Dolomites is the name of the mountain range situ
ated in the south of the Alps, between the Adige and Piave rivers and between the Val Pusteria and the Belluno valleys and spread out in the Italian Provinces Bolzano (South-Tyrol), Trento, Belluno, Udine and Pordenone.

The term Dolomite is a gesture to their discoverer, the Marquis D̩odat Gratet de Dolomieu (1750 Р1801). He took some rock samples during his trip to our mountains in 1788, analysed them and was the first to announce their chemical composition (double calcium carbonate and magnesium).
Badia, 1,324m

The quiet village of Badia is situated at the foot of the Sasso Santa Croce (Sas dla Crusc in Ladin language), the mountain that is tinged red when the sun sets. Badia is known for its beautiful nature walks and sunny, easy ski slopes.
Have a blessed week-end.Yours in Christ. N.

About Me

My photo

I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance.  I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. 
I live blissfully with my husband Steven,  a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
