From Venice to Paris in a day.
Sounds romantic, I know.
Except for…ahem, that my Paris is in Kentucky AND then there’s that little matter of 16 hours of traveling (and there you sit, all rested and in the same time zone;)!
Three plane changes, 2 security checks, (cameras, laptops, kindles: OUT! Scarfs, belts, shoes: OFF!)
Scraps of dignity?…Left behind at the freakin’ full body scanner 😉
I thought everyone would be excited that I was back.
Obviously, I missed the gondola on that one…
Do you have any tips on overcoming extreme guilt? Or dealing with those who are having, how can I say this delicately, anger issues?
It’s been a looong 3 days since I returned….
HOWEVER….Italy was fabulous with you my friend. I felt we needed to have a grand celebratory ending to our fun under the Tuscan sun (and elsewhere) in Italia.
To that end….ONE GRAND FINALE GIVEAWAY, one more video, and more pics of beautiful Italy!!
Put on your glad rags and get ready to be serenaded. Your “carriage” awaits 🙂 !!
And while you’re all dressed up may as well look for a place to grab a bite to eat 🙂
Looks like the perfect spot!
Fresh mozzarella with yummy tomatoes, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
And a little local vine and water dedicated to Italian opera 🙂
Well, if you’re going to paint a still life, everyone knows you need an odd number of desserts items….
In Italy each little thing has the ability to become a work of art.
Door knockers are included in that.
Some welcoming and some
good for those days when you just want to be left to yourself 😉
Uncommon beauty in common things….
perhaps that is what we love most about Italy!
(Please note: The photos I share here of our time in Italy are to be used as reference for doing watercolors for personal journals or postcards only. I please ask that they are used soley for that purpose:-)
A huge hug for taking this trip with me. I have felt you there with me in spirit, looking over my shoulder and whispering in my ear to make sure we didn’t miss a thing 😉
