For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move. ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON

Italian Farewell: Travel And Life

And now, farewell! On this journey I shall certainly learn how to travel; whether I shall learn how to live, I don't know. The people I meet who possess this art are so different from me in their nature and habits that I doubt whether I have the talent. GOETHE Italian Journey



So it's farewell, Italy, with your succulence...



... your seascapes...



... and your familiar strangers...

Lovely parting photos, Robert, and have no doubt: You have the talent of living well.

What a wonderful series of writings and of portraits of your glad-eyed lady and of your journey in Italy!

Solitary journeys as well as journeys with a kindred spirit.

Thanks, both.

Yes, am - you put your finger on it, as always.
