The purpose of this blog is to have a place to share my photos and experiences during my full-immersion vacation to Italy in September 2017. I have been studying the language da molti, molti anni…for many, many years…and this vacation is intended to take my Italian brain and tongue out for a real spin to see how I do.

Along for the ride with me will be my friend and teacher Lorella Federico of Italian Lessons in Tuscany. If it weren’t for her patience and friendship, this would not be happening.
