Sixteen Days! 16 days….. 2 weeks – plus 2 days.
No matter how you say it, it seemed like a long time, yet passed so
slowly quickly each day, as we both experienced the joy of being in what we consider to be our Second Home – Italy!
Having just returned (well, one entire week has now flown by…..) from our annual Thanksgiving Vacation in Italy, we are excited to have yet another 800 plus photos to look through, select the best, and continue to savor the experience as a memory through the lens of the camera. The moments captured reflect the great times, stunning sunsets, outstanding food, fabulous wine, freshly pressed olive oil, and friendly faces that we were fortunate to enjoy. (Oh, did I mention the food? Seasonal specialties were abundant and one truly spectacular moment involved olive oil…more about that in a future post!)
We are truly blessed to have stumbled onto the country shaped like a boot! How we both savor our moments there on vacation, recording our visits both visually through the camera lens, and on paper in our journals. This trip was no exception – we both had a hard time keeping up each day in recording the memories, as there were so many great ones had by both of us.
This year, it seemed there were many new relationships to form, new experiences to be had, and special times to share with each other. Over the next few weeks, our goal is to share some of those memorable moments we had with our “old” friends in Italy – plus see some of the newly minted ones that we seem to add on each journey.
As always with our travels, it seems the world continues to become a smaller and smaller place, with each of us out there just trying to make the best of our day – each and every day – in order to enjoy the simple things in life: laughter, friends, family, and food – all shared over a great glass of wine, of course! (Oh, did I mention we did indeed have some wine on this trip?……)
