About 4 nanoseconds after sitting down at my desk after the Christmas break, I was already daydreaming about how to get away again (isn’t being an adult fun?). One evening a few days later, as I was trying to distract myself...

Whenever it rains here in Turin - and I honestly mean every single time - someone chuckles as they say to me, "You should be used to this, you're from England". But just because we've grown up with near-constant drizzle and...
