Sounds of Italia

Ciao a tutti — hello everyone! Yesterday marked my three-year blog-iversary and what would have been my beloved father’s 73rd birthday. I feel fortunate to have spent the day in southern Italy, in the heel of the boot, with his (our) cousins, carissimi cugini!

It’s been an incredible three weeks in Italy. I can’t believe I’ve been able to have this time here. This country has a particular hum to it, with sounds uniquely its own. From Italians purring on their cell phones, to lake waters lapping the edge of the earth, to sirens with a wail all their own, to the church bells which can be heard tutta la giornata, Italy sounds like no other place in the world.

Fingers crossed (incrociamo le dita) these video below load and when they do, that their sounds transport you to the country we love so much.

Blessings to you all. Thank you for being here with me, three years of blogging has been such a joy for me. I have loved sharing my musings with you all!

  1. So glad you were with famiglia on your dad’s birthday. We recognized the date and had a lot to think about. Photos on Face Book were nice to see. Never forgotten!

  2. Stacy, you are so right. I’ve just returned from Sicily and I have to say that although I love my home here in the states, I’ve felt like something was missing. I think it is the sounds of Italy! And, of course, the beautiful mountains (as I don’t live in the beautiful SanFrancisco area…)

  3. Tanti auguri on your 3rd Bloghiversario! I love waking up to the sound of church bells. I’m going to have to listen to your links later when I can use wifi at the bar, as my internet connection sucks. I’m back in Puglia now too, after a quick trip (and bomb scare) to Milano. The sounds and smells are so captivating! I’ve been trying to keep up with posting photos on instagram, but I can only do it at the 2 bars in town with wifi! So fun! Buon resto del viaggio! Ciao, Cristina
