It’s a simple movie based on the book by Frances Mayes, about a woman who’s just divorced & who buys a villa in Tuscany on a whim, hoping things would turn towards better.

I liked this quote that I found to be wonderfully true and motivating 🙂

Martin tells Frances: “Signora, between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains. They built a train track over these Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks even before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew some day, the train would come.”
