  • Hawaii on My Mind (a photo anthology) 1 week ago Ciao Readers!  Or, more appropriately – “Aloha!” Today I am taking you on a trip to Hawaii – Maui, to be precise.   Have I mentioned that I LOVE Hawaii?!?!?  Long before I ever stepped foot in Italy or any other country, there was Hawaii (fun fact – I actually used to have a website...
  • Being a Brit in New Mexico 2 weeks ago Originally posted on Little Goode:My Aunt aka New Mexico to Italy got me musing recently on how I feel being British in America and in particular, New Mexico. I can’t decide if I’m the best or worst person to write a guest blog like this. Best because I consider myself both British and...
  • The Best Truffle Festival EVER!!! (In San Miniato) 1 month ago Originally posted on New Mexico to Italy:Ciao Readers! Okay, my mouth is watering just reminiscing about this festival and I am still smiling thinking about the fabulous little town it was in – San Miniato.  Apparently for the last 3 weekends of November every year for the past 42 years this...
  • What's in a Name? (or the tale of two "Las Vegas Suites") 2 months ago Ciao Readers! I think I’ve mentioned more than once that we took a road trip over Spring Break.  We started off in Las Vegas, splurging with a great AAA rate for 2 nights at the Bellagio (I’ve always wanted to stay there).  When I was checking us in, the concierge asked if we were there […]
  • Once Upon a Passport (with never-before seen photos) 2 months ago Ciao Readers! Today I am going to wax nostalgic, so your indulgence is required (and appreciated).  As we were planning for our Winter 2015/2016 trip to Europe it dawned on me that my passport might expire before then.  I checked, and sure enough it was getting close – can you imagine going to...

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.
