♥ My Italian Journey: More Tuscany ♥

♥ La Dolce Vita Loves Tuscany! ♥

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

– Thomas Merton

Is it possible to ever get enough of Tuscany? 

Let's Go to Italy Together!

As I come to the last few days of my stay in beautiful Tuscany, it’s hard to encapsulate this region in a few words or photos… Some places just have to be experienced!

Here’s a sampling of my last few days in Tuscany including Florence, Siena, Lucca…and beyond…

    Would love to purchase your book. Scheduled to travel to Puglia with a Group of ladies May 2017. Would love to do a trip with you somewhere. Looking to set up a blog helping widows to continue their travel after the love of their lives passed on

    • Terry,
      Thank you for commenting- your blog and travel plans sound excellent.
      My book is on Amazon -there is a link on the sidebar of every page of the blog. I do think you’ll find it a practical guide.
      Do stay in touch-since I’m traveling now, my ability to respond in a timely manner is compromised.
      You’ll love my next posts from Puglia…
      A presto!
