- When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!
P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs below).
I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.

I've posted these pictures here because I found a site on line where you can ask "'what is this" about something you want to know more about. This is a painting I bought quite a few years ago and have always loved but I would love it even more if I knew what it is portraying. Those pointy structures with the tall poles coming out of them especially puzzle me. I've wondered if this is some type of syrup making process . The people in the painting have I think slightly foreign features. The blue is glare from the glass over the painting. I would be thrilled to get any information about this painting. Hopefully I'll get lucky with this site I've found or maybe a reader here will be able to tell me something about it.
