Thou Paradise of Exiles, Italy!

 Thou Paradise of exiles, Italy! – Percy Bysshe Shelley

Hiking from Almalfi to Pontone for lunch, climbing steadily upward through the ruins of 13th century paper-mills are the best kind of days.

You may have the universe if I may have Italy.                                                               Giuseppe Verdi

Have a peaceful weekend.
 Todays Music: Shubert- Ava Maria

    1. Thank you so very much. It is a truly a place that allows the imagination to easily slip into envisioning the people and process of making the paper. The sound of water flowing permeates the entire area.

  1. Love, love, LOVE Amalfi. It has been 7 years since we last visited. Time to return soon!

    We are taking a trip to the Southwest U.S.in spring of 2016, and would appreciate any ideas for an itinerary and key sites (beyond the obvious). We will be staying with relatives in the Phoenix area, probably mid-April to early May.

  2. Tomorrow my sister visits on her way from Venice. I wait with anticipation for her talk of Italy. I’ve been no further than Aoste myself. But it is a country I would love to visit fully one day. For now I’ll enjoy your photos.

    1. Double good time coming for you. . Sister visiting with stories of Venice!
      I’m really happy that you enjoy my photos. This collage was difficult to edit down because I have hundreds of photos of the paper-mills.
