Buon Viaggio


"Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go.
But no matter, the road is life." ~ Jack Kerouac

His bags are packed, he's ready to go. Wait, that's from a Peter, Paul and Mary song!
Still, that song is in my head this morning. #2 Son leaves on a jet plane today for Florence!

Buon Viaggio Alex!


Pin It!

How exciting!! What a wonderful gift to give your son, the gift of education in a foreign country.

A little sad,yes, but think of all the wonderful experiences he will bring home and share with you around the dinner table. Good food, good wine, your family and tales from Italy, doesn't get much better than that girlie!

I'm sure you are missing that lovely young man already!

I love all the old Peter, Paul & Mary concerts and was lucky enough to see them in one of their last concerts before she passed. Their music reminds me of the passion of the 60's/70's...where we all had some cause...or no cause...or were where we were just because...

That's a sad/sweet song to remember your son's leave taking. Diana

What a fortunate young man Alex is. I wish him lots of great adventures. I know you will miss him, but October is not far off. You'll be in the Italian country side in just a few weeks.
Happy Labor Day. ~ Sarah

How wonderful!!
He's so blessed to be given this opportunity. Oh how I love Florence!

A Runner's Mind said...

Have a wonderful time, Alex! (Imagine that sentence with hands flying and an Italian accent!) Learn lots!

Sue Murphy@life as a house said...

We know you will miss him... but what a great opportunity. One of my regrets is that my parents didn't instill in me the joy of travel at an early age. It took me until my 40's to travel. We become so much more tolerant when we experience other cultures first hand.

Zaira said...

Buon viaggio!! I can see you'll miss him a lot...I guess it's not easy for parents to let children go...

Hugs xx

Lucky you that you get to visit him! It is one of my very favorite places. Not only is the city divine but the countryside around it is breath-taking. He is going to have a fabulous time...and so are you when you visit him!

I have GOT to get "the wild table" for Tom!!!!!! (I just saw it there in your sidebar!)

My parents and my sister went to Italy, a few years ago. They stayed in Florence in the very same hotel that "A Room with a View" was filmed. She didn't have one, though. =(
