Pisa is quite a manageable town to maneuver through. Once you’re done taking silly selfies at the Leaning Tower, you can wander along the Corso Italia, a street filled with great shopping. It crosses the Arno River, as you see here. I took this photo when I scurried from my hotel early to go buy clothes and a coat. My bag hadn’t arrived with me at the airport the night before…and I had a date! It reminds me a little of Venice…
When I decided to visit southwestern Sardinia, I really didn’t know anything about other than that it was an island off the coast of Italy. I liked the idea that it was Italy…and that it had its own culture entirely. As I started my research, I began to learn some interesting facts about this ancient place, and when I was there, I learned even more.
I got such great feedback from my post on the comedy of travel errors I experienced on my trip to Sardinia, that I thought it would be fun to create a visual interpretation of it!
Lorella and Gianni thought I was crazy. “Come back in the spring,” they begged, “Everything is beautiful then!” They felt bad that most of the tourist attractions were closed in Western Sardinia, and that it had rained incessantly on my trip. But I was as happy as a pig in mud — like the pigs on the agriturismo (farm) where I was staying.
