Youth Hostelling


Finale Ligure reflection matted and framed.

The window is from the Youth Hostel in Finale Ligure, Castello Vuillerman, where we stayed in 1999. We’ll never forget climbing the more than three hundred steps with packs on our backs to the Castello where the views of the city were well worth the climb.

The first variation in ink and water-colour repurposed from Studio 365:Day 145

Verona ii

Journal    11.VII.99

We travelled from Venice on the Andrea Dorea train, checked into the Verona Youth Hostel, the beautiful sixteenth century Villa Francescatti, and spent the day exploring this great city. The day ended at the Arena Opera Festival and an unforgettable performance of Carmen in the historic Roman Amphitheatre, the Arena Di Verona. What a day! I see from the Festival website Carmen is playing again this year on July 24th. If you are anywhere near Verona in July order your tickets today for a night to remember.
