Thinking … Inside the box

Part I- We spent an afternoon on one of our last days in southern Italy trying to learn more about intarsio after reading about the woodworking craft in one of our guidebooks. We visited a huge shop in Sorrento, and after viewing too many too heavily-laquered objects (everything from coasters to music boxes to paintings), […]

Returning to … Vesuvius

This walk was the confluence of two historical paths. One path through space and time started when we climbed Mt. Vesuvius in 1969 while we were on our ‘Grand – 5$ aday – Tour’ of Europe. The other started when Dick and Dottie started using our home a few times as they put together their […]

Hiking on the Amalfi Coast and on Isla Capri

But, we eventually found some ticket machines and […]

Coming back to … Rome!

We knew we would be coming back to Rome and Southern Italy. We knew that in July of 1969 when Leslie threw coins over her shoulder into Trevi Fountain (c.f. “Three Coins in the Fountain”). We just did not know then that it would be nearly a half a century later. In fact it wouldn’t […]

Come back to Sorrento

As we prepare for our upcoming voyage to Italy this is the music that inspires us to pack — Please watch our blog or sign up for email notices (on our home page), for we expect to be posting a series of new photographs and Italian stories over the next few weeks.
