italy (2006, 2010, & 2012)
Viva Italia! From the quaint villages of Tuscany to the ancient port of Rome, this nation has it all. Take a Gondola on a Venetian canal, sample the pasta of Lazio, explore the remoteness of Matera, and beyond! This is a popular country for me, and I get many requests for enlargements of the Breakfast Room of Sorano, the canals of Venice or the Colisseum of Rome. May you find a moment in time here to let your mind wander freely!
Friendly Greece, with its pristine white and blue-washed buildings and ancient historical sites! Due to an untimely eruption of a volcano in Iceland that disrupted my travel plans, I spent a mere 2 nights in Athens, 1 night in Santorini, yet I long to go back. The people were so welcoming and the food was magnificent! Come, enjoy Greece!
