Back from Italy Happy and Satiated!
It was a fabulous couple of weeks in Murano, Venice, and Florence.
My adventure was organized by Sara Legrand. I have been to Italy with her before and especially during these times on earth I knew she would provide us with a safe exciting adventure.
Italy was everything the US is not. Safe and aware of the pandemic. Covid vaccine is required to get on a train, a boat, or in a restaurant. Everyone wears masks indoors. I felt safe there. Returning home was a shock at the number of people who are disregarding even the simplest of protections such as mask wearing.
We saw many fabulous glass people on our adventure and had great times with friends old and new.
I saw Florence for the first time and fell in love with that city as well. Venice was nicely undercrowded and Murano was a quiet end to each day. Gelato was a treat each day around 5 and our dinners kept the conversation and spritzs rolling.
The apartment at Ca' Mazzega was a lovely home away from home and I would happily stay there again.
All and all it was the adventure of my life so far. Not sure I will be back for glass but I will lovingly show these places to my family in the future.
Thank you Italy and Sara for an amazing 17 days.
