About Me

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 above).

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.

A Postscript to Sunday

I forgot to add these two photos to Sunday's post - I had them with my shop photos rather than my walk photos but I really liked this window, so I'm posting them now. And since there are only two, I splurged and posted them actual size.  Really makes a difference.  Sunday's actual post is right below this one.

Everything in this window is very modern (or retro modern, I guess) and very red, and very Marilyn Monroe.  You'll get a better idea in the close-up below.  Isn't it great?

I think probably my favorite thing in the whole window is the incredible tube of red lipstick that is really a ballpoint pen.  Fantastic and I want one! :)

I kind of like the kissy frog - it's so ridiculous!
