Question

Q

 

It was day three in Rome and my daughter and I were feeling pretty good with our attempts to use public transportation and find our way to various sites. We were walking down a street and were suddenly approached by a tourist asking if we spoke English and wanting to know directions to some nearby landmark. As it happened, we actually did know where it was and gladly provided directions. What a rush! Our first trip to Italy, our rudimentary grasp of the language, and yet we were mistaken for natives! Meraviglioso!


Ever felt “at home” away from home?

Meraviglioso!

Meraviglioso!

Day 17 of the A-Z Challenge!

    The first time I went to Prague I felt like I’d been there many times before. Strangely, I even intuitively manoeuvred my way around without getting lost.

    Hi Gail, i see that you have question too 🙂 i like the part about looking like a local 🙂 its a question i used to teasingly ask my daughter when we visited places, ‘do you think we look like locals as yet?’every time we’d feel gawky and uncertain 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Let's chat!
