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 "Oh What a Beautiful Evening"

I took those sky pictures right around 6:00 p.m. out the dining room window.  After dinner, I took off for Starbucks, forgetting that they're now back to doing the Thursday night free and loud concerts down there.  But I went in and enjoyed a nice iced tea and my new issue of Food and Wine and watched as the sky clouded over and there was a brief spurt of rain.

I left around 8:45 and this is what the sky looked like by then - still pretty but more rain coming for sure.  In fact I just barely got back in before it started.  Sure did look pretty for a brief spell, though...

 Kind of like the horse and carriage in front of Five Guys. :)

Ooooh - I like the clouds rolling in and the pink sunset. Very nice!
If we ever finish getting our place set up so that pictures are an option, I'll send some along :)
