About a week ago, but some years ago. We celebrated our retirement and explored new areas of Italy.

Arena di Verona

It was July 5th, 2008. We arrived in Milano and started to explore. We learned about the trams, the buses, and getting lost. It was fun.

Our trip went everywhere, Verona, MIlano, east, west, north south. At one small town, Tessimo, the innkeeper spoke only German

Now it is 12 years later,and my and possibly your world has been changed by the Covid19 virus. American are not welcome in Italy. I understand this and the need to protect the citizens of Italy.

It has not stopped our planning for out next trip. Sicily is our next destination.

Capri

Angela and I have visited most of Italy. From the north and Cortina di Ampezzo to Calabria and Reggio. Sicily has heritage for my wife’s family. That will be our next return is it. It is also amazing. So much is on this island we will never discover it all

It was a one hour walk to the top to Castelmola. When I got down to the bottom, una birra e una pizza. I was definitely wiped out, but the view was beautiful.

The walk was worth it. At the top a festa was I progress.

  1. Our last trip was to Cefalu last year for the whole month of May. We can’t wait to get back there our friends are waiting for us.
    The air, the water, the food are all indescribable!
    We bought a little bit of Italy 3 years ago. We came across a Piaggio Vespa car 1982. We converted it into a food and beverage truck. Check out our website at Bellavespa. Com

    1. Beautiful Dave. My wife Angela fell in love with them. I did a post when I started on my blog about the Ape. Many different kinds out there, but always the moto with a cab. How did you ship it back? Like your site. Thanks for the info.
