An Adventure in Self-Discovery

19 Jun

People often ask Len and me why we return to Italy each year. The food, the culture, the art, the people, the history? What is it that continues to draw us to the same place?

Perhaps the writer, D.H. Lawrence, expressed our sentiments best:

“For us to go to Italy and to penetrate into Italy
is like a most fascinating act of self-discovery.”

How very true. Returning to the same place, year after lovely year, is what allows us to experience Italy in a way a casual tourist simply cannot. For us, it’s a dream come true, a goal realized.



And no, that’s not our house, but it is one of our favorite Cortona views.
Till next we meet…
