reunion with an old love

October 2, 2011

Last week, Beth and I went on a short trip to Elba with my family. The small island in the Italian Tuscany region is something like my second home, because my family and I vacationed there almost every year of my life. However, I hadn’t been there in almost four years because of my stint in the States. It’s hard to describe how much I missed this place and how excited I was to finally go back there. I was so busy enjoying the experience that I hardly took any pictures, let alone good ones. Beth did a way better job, which you can see here (and at the end of this post…). In the meantime, here are a few of mine:

This winery between Chiessi and Colle d'Orano on Elba's wild West Coast is one of my favorite places on the entire island.
