As the year winds down, and I think we’d all like to forget 2020, I wonder where travel will take us in the coming years and what it will look like?

In the meantime, we can dream, plan and figure out if our bucket list destinations are really still on our to-do lists?

We all really need to appreciate the people we meet on our travels as they enhance our experiences and cement our memories.

Giovanna -our Capri guide

 

Agostino -a fabulous guide on the Amalfi Coast

Their lives have changed with these lockdowns just like ours.

This week was a very difficult one.

So how do we move forward?

Back to travel thoughts!

Anniversary trip to Capri -special touches arranged by our guide

Arno River -Florence

We are all looking forward to creating more of those unforgettable memories.

Viscaya Gardens, Miami

There are many gardens in the USA I have dreamed of visiting forever like

Vail, CO

I’ve always wanted to tour some of Europe’s famous gardens like

I want to go back to

Of course, the obvious, Italy!

Italy in 2021!

Some of my favorite itineraries have been:

Venice

Villa Bordoni, Greve in Chianti

Venice Grand Canal

Another 2 week excursion was

Milan Duomo

Durini Loggia Villa Balbianello

Bellagio

Many trips have included the

Faraglioni Rocks Capri

Another Amalfi Coast trip we stayed between Naples and Sorrento with friends, rented a car and drove all over the coast. (a lot of driving!!)

Ravello

Positano

On another, I was lucky enough to accompany a fabulous group of women to document their journey and we started in Naples, boat to

Pompeii

Borgo Egnazia

Alberobello

Matera

One winter trip, I visited a friend stationed in

Verona

One thing I have found is not to be overly ambitious.

Also, stop and consider how much traveling you are really willing to endure while in a country.

Siena

Since many of us now work or always were able to work remotely, the office has taken on a different meaning.

I’m personally sick of Zoom, how about you?

Florence in the evening after the tour buses depart!

What destination will move your soul?

The world is a magnificent place! We need to treasure it.
