  • Fur Coats (or how New York is [and is not] like Florence) 1 hour ago Ciao Readers! In my last post I mentioned a trip to New York we took in January.  Part of the reason I love going to New York is because (in some ways) it reminds me of Italy (most importantly the food!).   Which got me thinking, as I often do, about the similarities and difference between […]
  • New Mexico to Italy Blog is Back (sort of)! 2 days ago Ciao Readers! I’ve missed you!  And I’ve missed blogging!  So…. I’ve decided to get back to blogging with an updated name – “New Mexico to Italy …and beyond!”   I hope you’ll stick around as I tell tales of recent travels and travels yet to come (including travels back to...
  • Seriously, MORE Festivals?!?! (yes, but this time there's cheddar!) 4 months ago Originally posted on New Mexico to Italy:Ciao Readers! Okay, if you’re tired of hearing about all of the festivals here, this is not the post for you.  Then again, if you’re a festival junkie like me, read on… It’s almost hard for me to believe how many festivals there are here in...
  • Oops! 8 months ago Sorry all if you got an un-Italy related e-mail.  I just set up a website for my neighborhood association and it got posted to the wrong blog.  If you’re interested in the other one, it’s:  www.laderawest.org Hope you all are well!Filed under: Uncategorized
  • InterNations Magazine Article (featuring ME) 1 year ago Ciao Readers!  So, I am trying to write this on an iPad as I am out of town and I can’t actually see what I’ve typed (weird)… So I will make this short…. My friend Bobbi, who I met in Florence through her blog http://www.goal42.wordpress.com, had the idea to write an article about our...

I look forward to living a few moments each day, or at least several times a week, in Florence - and that is exactly what happens when I read New Mexico to Italy. I have a cappucino, or a gelato, or an exotic meal overlooking a breathtaking view - that is in FLORENCE! It's well written, funny and yet genuine, the pictures help you 'see' Florence through Hope's eyes. A few days ago I walked with Hope along the Arno and it was a delight. I've seen how even the little things make each country so very different. Cars parked randomly everywhere - would NEVER happen in a city here; you'd be ticked & towed, yet it's normal there. Exotic. Wonderful, ancient architecture with details captured in the photos that make me google them because they are unwrapped treasures - brought to me as I sit in New Mexico. It's a fabulous blog! I always grin when I see I get to go spend a bit of time in Florence, and then I either savor it while stretching out the wait, or I can't help it and dive right in.

I look forward to the mornings I can wake up & experience some time I spend in Italy, via the blog. The photos leave me with a new desire to explore the area when I get to be there in person.

I love this blog and look forward to each new post! In addition to being very entertaining and informative about everyday life in Florence, it's educational--I've learned much about history, art and local customs.
