Our first trip to Sicily began in the famous resort town of Taormina where on a clear day Mount Etna looms large from on high, and the aquamarine blue waters, with crashing waves and dark, rocky beaches, beckon below.

We enjoyed our first 2019 visitor from the States in February, with one week to explore and show her northern Italy. With the visit coinciding with Kevin’s winter school break, we put on our running shoes (and for La Scala, our fancy shoes!), and spared no time to show our friend all we could of the area we now call home!
There is more to Parma than food, I was surprised to discover. Walk around. The Piazza Garibaldi has a bronze statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi, considered the founding father of the country of Italy. On one side of the square is the Governor’s Palace which has a central bell tower with an interesting and large clockface that also shows the time in other parts of the world.
Ciao a tutti. This is Kevin with an update on my first Italian field trip to Tuscany.
If you know me, you know I tend to ‘go deep’ in subjects and activities when I’m inspired, whether it’s learning about a particular point or person in history, or learning a new sport or activity. Friday I ventured into the world of produce shopping, right on the street outside our apartment, and today I went deep in classic Italian recipes. And I learned sometimes you CAN have too much of a good thing.
