Quick Update

We have been in Italy now for just over one month and have had approximately 30 pizzas…we are close to averaging a pizza a day! Food here is definitely the “dolce vita” with the fresh pasta, wine, bread, prosciutto and cheeses, can I just say I am in heaven! Here is a quick update to our whereabouts in the last month.

We first went here:

Amazing Venice!

Next we went here:

The Italian Alps and Lake Como.  We did a little skiing, skating and hiking.

In the breathtaking Tuscan countryside close to Lucca.

Hope this finds you all happy and healthy and ready for the best year of your life! Cheers to all!

Today’s view!

We have visited so many incredible places and have done so many amazing things on our trip!  Learning, experiencing, growing, and seeing are all part of traveling, along with overcoming challenges too.

Today, we are on top of the world, well the Italian Alps, but it feels close…  We will be spending Christmas here.  We are staying in a wonderful stone cottage, in a village with only 50 inhabitants, which dates back to the 15th Century.

With the tragedy in Connecticut,  I have been feeling pretty emotional, as all of us have.  Reality still exists on top of a mountain in Italy.  That reality makes me committed even more to this journey we have been having as a family.  Although, no one needs to travel to experience each day to its fullest or to look at life a little more closely, we all can just do that.  Get out there, wherever that may be!
