A Stiletto is Always in Fashion

We’re talking “boot” here – the boot of Italy and its famous heel (what I call the stiletto).  Here’s the last post of our driving tour of Puglia, and includes some really beautiful places!  Click here to read about our final days of this trip.

Lecce – A City of Unexpected Surprises

One of the highlights of our driving tour of Puglia was Lecce.  What a gem!  Here’s the journal!

Puglia – Part I (April 23rd to May 5th)

If you have been following the blog on this trip to Italy with me, you might remember that I talked about the second part of the trip, the photographers’ trip, first.  But really our trip began with friends Galina and Jon and a rental car we claimed in Bari on April 25th.  Here are the first couple of days of that part of the trip.  This part is all Puglia and not the same as the part we covered with the photographers.  I hope you enjoy it!

Last Stop – Tuscany, May 2019

Finally, I have arrived in Tuscany, the last stop of the Eddie Soloway Celebration of Italy!  I thought this would be a breeze to write, but it has taken me quite awhile. I hope you enjoy it!  Expect lots of pictures, and not too much text to read.  Click here.

Going Back in History – Abruzzo, Italy May 2019

Stop three on our trip with Eddie Soloway and friends, found us in the medieval village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio.  A short post with plenty of pictures, this was my first visit to this area of Italy.
