In Our Backyard...

It never seizes to amaze me what interesting, beautiful things we find when taking a Sunday drive.  Although an area known for its seaside adventure, you can easily be swept away into another world within only a short driving distance of the Mediterranean.  Here’s what we found yesterday:

One of many residences of the Malaspina Family.

Just your average pizza place.

A bird’s eye view from the medieval hill town of Fosdinovo.

Motorcross - who knew?!

And super-duper “comfort food” for a crisp fall day. 

Hope you all had a good weekend too...

Your fotos reminded me of when I visited Italy. It's been a few years now. My family is from Calabria and there are some hidden jems there. :-)

Like you, I married a German and moved to Germany. I'm slowly getting used to it, but I'm still finding the language a bit difficult after being here for 3 years.

Looking forward to visiting your blog in the future.

Isn't that the little mountain town above the north Tuscan coast that has a big castle? I think I remember it from years ago.

Love these short tour reports that can give people ideas to do which are close and easy!

Rosa, I married the German! Meg is married to an Italian.

E' per questo che adoro andare in giro per la mia provincia la domenica mattina; non sai mai in cosa ti puoi imbattere :)
Ieri, ad esempio, sono passato vicino a una Chiesa della quale non ero a conoscenza (era chiusa e dovrò tornare)

Love the pizza joint...what a hoot! I've wanted to go to Fosdinovo ever since reading Eric Newby's book. Someday.

Sorry Diana LOL

I meant to say that we both married Europeans and moved to Europe.

It was a general statement but I should have been more specific. :-)

Hi Megan,
I read some of your articles! I admire you, 'cause you faced another type of life here in Italy, moving from California and what you made is very beautiful (I saw your website and it's very interesting)
Tanti complimenti!
