Travels

Italy Day Fourteen: Ferrara


 
A day spent enjoying the city and being inspired by all of its glorious art that will need a fuller accounting when we return home next week.
 

 
My introduction to the work of Carlo Bononi in the just-opened exhibition in the Palazzo Diamanti was the highlight of the day for me. That and the gelato affogato in the Piazza Trento Trieste.

Italy Day Twelve: Modena

              The Giuseppe Giusti Museum

After the Ferrari museum yesterday, the “Ferrari” of balsamic vinegar today. If only I could post the heady aroma from those barrels for you to enjoy too.
 
“Giuseppe Giusti is the oldest Balsamic Vinegar company in the world, founded in Modena in 1605 and now guided by the Giusti family’s 17th generation”

We couldn’t ask for a more perfect Fall afternoon here in one of Canada’s most beautiful cities, Québec City, where we have arrived for a short three day visit. I have no doubt the Ile d’Orléans where we will be spending the day tomorrow will be just as spectacular.

Studio 365: Day 295

This morning we said farewell to Bergerac after a week filled with great memories of this beautiful region of France, with special thanks to Laurence and Pascal.

This afternoon we were greeted by the glorious Surrey countryside as we return to England for the final few days of our travels with dearest friends.

Backpack
…The possibility that your luggage doesn’t appear through that carousel door is always a time of high anxiety. But there it is, in all its reassuring blueness. At that moment the possibility of Machu Picchu became an eagerly awaited reality…
