Seane and I began the planning for the trip during Christmas 2018.
The images in this first gallery begin in Oakville, Ontario – first image – in the driveway; the next 7 images are from Orvieto, my favorite hilltop town north of Rome; then there’s the image of me in a field of poppies in the countryside near Firenze; and the last image is Seane in the amazing Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa.
