Reno Italiano

We had the chance to watch a great new program on HG TV called Reno Italiano. It is as you guessed about renovating homes in Italy. We were tipped off to the pilot by @girlinflorence (Georgette Jupe). A wonderful person who fills my twitter and instagram feed with pictures of beautiful Firenze. The host of […]

Happy Holidays

We like a lot of people spent the morning catching up with family on Zoom. I for one really enjoyed not having to rush between families on Christmas Day. We did however hit the road and take a trip to Clearwater Beach for a nice long walk. The temperature was only around 50 F so […]

Potential Roadblocks to Your Travels

The COVID world is still very much controlling our lives despite the rollout of two vaccines. The CDC stated that you shouldn’t travel over the holidays.

Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park

We wanted to get out of the house and wanted to find as responsible a way of doing that as possible. We decided that we’d take a walk in the park, the Lowry Park and Zoo Tampa. The Zoo is divided up in to 6 sections that lend its self to a meandering walk through […]

What’s Next…?

The world, we hope, will move on from the last four years. We’ve found it quite surreal the way the world, no we, the US retreated from the world. We hope that at this point, given the imminent change in leadership, we will return to a place of leadership in the world. We also agree […]
