One of the things I came to like the most about Francesco is his desire for meaningful travel. We have that in common—we don’t want to only see a few famous sights and take some selfies; we want to experience the real life of a place as much as we can.

So, we spent part of our travels in Australia getting our hands dirty by working on a farm in Queensland! We woke up early on a cool morning (I wasn’t exactly enthusiastic about that part) and spent the day working with Claudia on the farm. We picked mandarins (I can taste them even now!) and helped with the cutting and packaging of bok choy before it was shipped out to supermarkets. It was a busy and tiring day, but one of the best experiences we had during our travels!
