There was a lot of talk going around the web this week about Italy and, as always, with very good reason. I have such fond memories of the time we spent living in the bel paese and all of the wonderful trips we were able to take.
The BBC write-up this week about Lucca being the best city to visit in Spring 2011, got me thinking about all the small towns scattered about Italy that are veritable tourist gems - walled cities like Lucca & Gubbio, hill-top treasures like Orvieto, and spiritual oases like Assisi.
This is one of my favorite photos taken in Italy (of quite a numerous collection), simply because it shows the subtly of the changing afternoon light on the stone walls and, even more simply, because it captures the everyday warmth & calm of wandering narrow streets like these in uncoutable, humble Italian towns.
Here's hoping your weekend is full of comfort and warmth... bon weekend a tous! xx
