I’m back! I’m home and I am not taking that fact for granted. I learned this year that travel can be fraught with difficulty and a smooth road should be considered a tremendous gift. The really amazing thing is that it took me five senior trips to come to this reality. As always, God is good.
Rather than write a detailed diary of our trip as I did last year, I think I will present a series of “snapshots.” I am not referring to actual pictures here, though I did take a camera for the first time in several years and will post a few of my pictures along the way. The trip this year can be seen as a little series of lessons learned and those are what I want to share. Some of my entries will be serious; some will be tongue-in-cheek, and of course, there will be at least one rant just to prove my authorship.
Here are a few pictures to get us in an Italy frame of mind.
Ciao, for now. Anything I wrote now would involve too much jet lag to be safe for publication.
