Wisdom of Tuscany…

I picked up a couple of new books today.  I came across the author, Ferenc Máté, about 10 years ago when I was living on my old Westsail.  Ferenc also had a Westsail and having lived onboard for many years he wrote numerous boating books, including one specifically dealing with the fitting out of his Westsail, which I found immensely useful.

Below are a couple of his boating books which I still have on my shelves.

After his time on boats, he and his wife moved to Tuscany where they bought an old run down friary and set about restoring it and rejuvenating its badly neglected vineyard.

Consequently he has written numerous books on his new life in Tuscany.

These are the two titles I bought today.  They deal with living at a slower pace and appreciating the truly important things in life with a major focus on self sufficiency and growing food.  I’m hoping that many of the practices in Tuscany can be adopted at High-Water.
