When JPE & I travel... we limit ourselves to a single suitcase & a backpack! To document our travels, we purchase magnets... it's SOMETHING TINY, generally inexpensive & easy to carry home without worrying about loss or breakage! Here's one of the magnets from our summer travels in 2005. We'll be looking for magnets from Peru in the coming weeks.
No... this is not a magnet! We picked up this hand-painted tile in Orvieto, Italy. This is one of three tiles purchased in the open-air market place. I loved the VIBRANT colors in this picture... and yes, the country-side in Italy is every bit as gorgeous as this tile.
As you can see, our travels provide treasured memories, adventures, and an opportunity for us to connect, away from our day-to-day life. Although I've experienced some periods of anxiety in preparation for this trip to PERU, I know we'll have a fabulous time learning about the Incan culture, people and architecture.
I'm inviting you to come back to read about our adventures
& check out the photos in the coming weeks.
See you later this week!
