Not exactly the way I'm traveling, and not as picturesque...but perhaps a bit more safe from the roving English privateer and a bout of scurvy!Leaving tomorrow for Italy and could not be more excited! All my sketchbooks, watercolors and camera are packed and I've got some good things planned for this "Mini-Grand Tour". These trips come so few and far between for me that any chance to go to Europe is a really big life event that I get pretty keyed up about. The last month has gone by in a flash and I'm spending this evening (aside from "trick or treating" with the wife and kids) going over my itinerary and hunting down those last minute addresses of things to see before everything sets in motion.
I'll be missing reading all of your great blogs for the next few weeks but plan to enjoy catching up when I return.
Cheers and Ciao!
