The Duomo - Milan Cathedral

To me, Milan doesn’t have a charm many other Italian cities do. It is big, fast-paced, dull and overly urban. I do understand why it is sometimes left out of the mainstream tourist itineraries. 586 more words

New parrot roosting site; my ceramic plaque

I used to quite like this ceramic plaque ‘Pellitur Paternos’ (it means ‘expel the parents’ – graffiti seen on a wall in old Pompei, or perhapsit is a phrase from a poem by Horace) 102 more words

I Want to Fly to Assisi

Where would I go if could be immediately transported somewhere?  I and other bloggers were challenged to write a post, answering this question.

Review: 'Divergent' (dystopia-ish faction-y grrl power)

It feels like The Hunger Games light, but it’s better than the screen-version of The Mortal Instruments.

In a futuristic, post-something-or-another world that looks like Chicago-After-People, skyscrapers that are two-centuries old inexplicably don’t fall down to crush the Five Factions: Abnegation, the selfless; Amity, the peaceful; Candor, the honest; Dauntless, the brave; and Erudite, the intellectual. 495 more words
