Italy 2016

By |October 1st, 2016|Categories: Things To Do & See, Videos|

Just over a month ago I returned from a 1 month trip to Italy where I visited many beautiful towns/villages from the North to the South, traveling over 1500 miles (2,414 km) by train and car.

I am so grateful for the time spent, and memories made with my [...]

By |April 12th, 2016|Categories: Things To Do & See, Uncategorized|

Lago Maggiore is interesting as it lies within (or divided into) 3 regions; 2 in Italy (Piedmont and Lombardy) and Switzerland’s canton Ticino.

Ferry To Stresa

By |April 11th, 2016|Categories: Things To Do & See|Tags: , |

One morning I took the ferry to Stresa. It was a long trip as the ferry stopped at all the little villages along the way. Isola Superiore dei Pescatore, Isola Madre, Isola Bella, Baveno, Verbania, to name a few – each with its own beauty. As we neared each village a crew member from the ferry would go through the process of docking and extending a metal ramp so that passengers could exit and board. [...]
