It's impressive to me that, even in 2015, traditions still thrive in Europe's smaller towns and more remote corners. For example, traveling around Italy to explore Easter traditions, we went into the rugged Marche region.

Enjoying my rustic breakfast of wild boar and sharp cheese at my farmhouse B&B just outside of Cantiano, I couldn't resist taking you on a simple tour of the salt-of-the-earth artifacts that surrounded me. Join me for an intimate glimpse of traditional farm life in the Marche -- from a homemade rake, to a horn made from a horn, to the little calendar you buy from the local cops to stay on their good side.
