too young to be old and too old to be young,

but just the right age

to be traveling, exploring and sharing our adventures with you.

    Judy, Great subject matter and beautiful pictures. Do you and Len the photographers? I love the layout of your blog and formating of pictures. Wish I could do as well. Is this all done through WordPress or is there a better way?

      So glad you like the post. I am the photographer and Len is my fan club! The layout is from WordPress, and I use what’s available to set my format. I have always loved photography and this gives me a great way to share my photos.

    Hello, I just came upon your post on Frances Mayes blog. It seems that you both have the same love of Cortona that my husband and I do! We try to get over there as often as possible. We live in California, retired and found Cortona the usual way. Have been back there at least 6 times (once for a 3 month stay). We leave again in three weeks, fly in to Venice for 5 days, then head to Cortona for a month. During that time we will be again heading to Varenna on Lake Como for a few days. Where do you and your husband call home? I too am a photography buff and loved looking at your work.

    Lovely blog! When are you coming for a visit in Abruzzo? 😉 Maple

      Hopefully next trip. My paternal grandfather was born in Abruzzo, so we have roots there. Love reading your posts about it!

        Thank you so much! That’s fantastic to hear! Let us know when you are coming, we could show you the treasures of this amazing region! 🙂

        Just curious…What are your favorite cities/towns in Abruzzo?


  5. Maple&Saffron July 22, 2013 at 6:13 AM #

    You couldn’t ask a harder question Judy! We make tours so we know our region very well! Abruzzo has so many different places, from the high mountains to the sea, I couldn’t really find one that is my favourite! 😀 Where was your grandfather born?

    Well said! 🙂

    I came across your blog while researching the Capraro family. My great grandmother was Rose Capraro, daughter of Francesco Capraro and Angelina Delli Colli from Aquino Italy. Are they of any relation to you?


    • blogginginitaly January 15, 2016 at 7:04 PM #

      Hi April, My Capraro ancestors’ name was actually Iacapraro. The Ia at the beginning of the name was dropped once they were in the US, so perhaps they were not related. Also, they were from Abruzzo, not Lazio, but of course, who knows? Thanks for your email and good luck with your search! If I hear of anyone that might be related, I’ll let you know.

        Hello Judy.
        My hobby is re-creating for my friends, meals served on liners of the past. I have a small collection of menus. This year I’m doing Conte Di Savoia and I happened to snare a Luncheon menu from July 20th 1938. Needless to say your blog of your grandfather’s trip really made things come alive for me. The menu is not marked Tourist Class and I suspect it’s a First Class menu. Never-the-less, if you’d like a scan leave a message and we can work something out. You might check out “What’s on the menu” http://menus.nypl.org/ and search Conte Di Savoia. Mine isn’t there but it makes interesting reading.

        Hi Andrew, I’m glad my grandfather’s story added to your hobby. I will look at the menus and imagine him on the ship once again. Thanks for your note, Judy

    Great memories in pictures and words on our magical year in Roma. Thanks for the 50th anniversary review of that seminal year .
