Today I became a jigsaw puzzle maker!! There's a site called jigidi.com where you can go work puzzles and periodically I rediscover it and become obsessed with working puzzles for a few days. Today, I looked through page after page of puzzles of buildings, trying to find something from Florence. Finally did find one of the Ponte Vecchio Bridge but I wanted the Duomo!!
So I looked to see if I could upload one of my pictures to make a puzzle and I could and I did and now you all need to go work my Duomo puzzle.
Here's the link: Brunelleschi's Dome - Florence And here's the picture I used:
If you decide to try the puzzle here are a few things that might help. When you click "solve this puzzle", it goes to a page full of puzzle pieces (in the case of my puzzle, 204 pieces). Up in the right hand corner is where you can zoom in or zoom out, the double line puts it on pause and takes you back to the picture, and the puzzle pieces are already turned the right way. You still have to find where they go, but you can't turn them this way and that.
I hope lots of people try it - it takes a while, but when you get tired, you can pause it and come back to it later. And be careful - you may get hooked! If you decide to make a puzzle from one of your pictures, be sure and let me know. :)

- 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.
