I am going Home To Italy after more than 18 months since my last visit.
It is like a fix, chocolate, wine, face book, something that completes your day and enhances your life.
While talking with a stranger about Italy I was amazed that they understood how addictive Italy can be. Almost from the time you step off the plan or the ship if you are lucky to have that method of arrival, something happens. Life becomes animated, people are seen in color, I feel more alive. Perhaps it is becaue I can understand some of what they say and listening to their daily conversations is like watching a movie. When you view life from the outside/in it can be very interesting.
Back to the topic! I have not posted in weeks because I was finishing a 23 year career that I closed this week, tried to sell a house to finance the plan to move Home To Italy (yes that was a joke in todays market) and organizing my next adventure: 30 days in country and a 2 week sail back to NYC.
Have so much to share and I shall post each in turn, so stay tuned for my life, Home to Italy.
