Fresh Dolomite spring water during a long trek into the hills. (The water was so cold it could have been ice!) Worth it. Time to go to Nepal!
Standing on a bridge over one of the many, many canal ways in Old Venice.
Ohh the colorful streets of a tiny littly isalnd off Venice called Burano. The picture is unable to do justice to the actual mirage of colors…
The view from my ‘home’ in Cortina, Italy. Morning sun off of the back deck, mountains in every direction with a blanket of fog nestling into the valleys…bliss.
