Teglio, Italy. My family visited this very small town located on a mountain while we were on vacation in northern Italy. This photo demonstrates the beautiful landscapes of my grandfather's village where he was born and raised before he took his bride to Montreal to start a new life. Although this photo may show the tranquility and peace of Teglio, what we don't see is just how much hard work, and blood, sweat and tears has gone into this tiny village, and how it has grown into something they are proud to call their home.
