Italy, Oct. 2005

ronf_gwDecember 21, 2007

My daughter and son-in-law got to live in Italy for three years while he was in the Air Force. He was stationed at Aviano AFB in northern Italy. My wife and I were there for a couple weeks in Oct. of 2005. They lived about 12 miles from the base in a quaint little village. This was their view of the Dolomite mountains from the front door of their house.

One day we went for a drive up into the mountains.

We also went over to Florence for a few days. Besides all the usual sights we went to a sculpture garden at Boboli.

Even the drinking fountains had these little sculptures in them.

One of the most interesting places to explore is the local food market.

Hey! You posted!! Beautiful!! It looks like your kids were in a beautiful, natural spot... I love the trees changing color pictures and the stream with the stone sides.

I didn't get to see Boboli Gardens and it looks like I missed out---I didn't know what was there. So amazing! Even the water fountain!?! I love your pictures!

Incredible food market. Makes me want to cook! Looks like you and your wife had a blast touring!

Thanks for remembering to share your pictures! ;)

Thanks, texashottie.
Also at Boboli gardens was a porcelain museum. Not the highlight of my day but my wife was fascinated by it.

That's pretty too--I can see where you wife would love to see that. Porcelain? We were enamored with all the stone mosaics Florence had---we got caught up looking through some of the stores there that had gorgeous mosaic tables made with all natural stone. But I didn't know they were known for porcelain as well.

Wow, loved all the photos, things I will probably never see so it is great seeing through photos, thanks for sharing. I can see why your wife was fascinated by it, so pretty.
