When I was younger, I wanted to travel everywhere. Now, not so much. I think it's because overall I'm happy where I live and I enjoy my life. But there is one place I would - and will! - return to again and again….
My husband and I went to Florence years ago and just loved it - the food, the history, the art, the people. We ate fresh strawberries drizzled with balsamic vinegar, saw the leaning tower at Pisa, visited a museum in the town of Vinci where you-know-who was from. Wherever we looked, we saw paintings and sculptures come alive from the slides of those old art history courses we took in school. Every time I turned around, I saw another older couple - stooped, arm-in-arm, she with purse in hand, him wearing a dapper hat, on their way to Mass - that reminded me of my paternal grandparents.
Some day, my husband and I will go back to Florence. We'll explore small Italian towns, we'll roam the countryside, we'll soak it all in. And who knows? Maybe one day, my husband and I will look just like one of those little old couples, and we'll become a small piece of someone else's memory, a small piece of Italian history….
