Our 2022 Spring/Summer travels take us back to France (it has been way too long); and then we will travel to Italy in the Fall. We planned the itinerary to have a maximum time relaxing outside cities. Villa/houses/apartments where we can enjoy a yard, a patio and of course a pool were at the top of our list.

Our trip starts with a direct Air France flight, Vancouver to Paris. We will be in Paris for a week. Paris is a great city for photography. A trip to the excellent pen store Plume et Bille will round out the visit to Paris.

We are staying in a couple of villa/apartments in the Lazio and Tuscany Regions, they well positioned for us to visit some of our favorite places, such as Orvieto in Umbria, in the photo above.

Rome is so much more than iconic historic buildings and momunments. Get away from the major tourist locations and Rome is an interesting city full of scenes to remember.
