We wake up in Portugal, and go to sleep in Italy.
Two dream lands. Two cultures that combine the old and the new, the world of yesterday and the world of tomorrow, the ancient and the modern.
We wake up with the rain and we go to sleep with clear skies. We wake up with the sunrise and go to sleep with the sunset. (Well, we wake up well past the sunrise and go to sleep well past the sunset, but ya get the poetry, right?)
A day of travel is a day when the journey is put on a microscope: we go from point A to point Z and so many variables happen on route. And today - so many variables happened that the day felt like an Italian comedy of horrors!
But this is the way of the world.
This is the way of the traveller.
This is how a trip becomes a JOURNEY: it has it ALL in it.
The drama, the stress, the wonder, the magic, the curiosity, the connection, the love, the hate, the boredom, the excitement, the life, the death, and the journey that happens between.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
