Like Waking up From a Dream

When I returned from Italy, everyone I knew asked me about the trip.  It took me a minute to answer, to gather my thoughts to describe this truly incredible trip.  Giovanna and I came to the conclusion that the best way to describe the trip was to say that it was like a dream.  We were dreaming for 10 days, and then we woke up.  That’s how I feel now, over a month since I’ve returned stateside, that I woke up from a beautiful dream. 

I want nothing more than to get on a plane tomorrow and fly back to Rome.  Of course I know that living and working in Italy would be different from vacation, but I can’t help myself from thinking about what it would be like to wake up every day to a real cappuccino and cornetto and make my way to work hobbling in heels on the cobblestone and dodging men in tailored suits on Vespas.  Until I make it back to Italy, it’s not a bad dream to have in the meantime. 🙂

  1. I love the blog and the photo are beautiful. Someday I’d love to do a bike tour of Italy. Have someone else lug are our gear to each day’s stop so we could just explore along the way to our destination. That way I could eat & drink merrily throughout the trip!

  2. What a wonderful-looking place Jen. I love your photos, especially the ones on the beach – fishing boats. What I want to know is: where are the photos of Italian beach boys and men in suits on Vespas? These photos are conspicuously absent. 🙂
