One of my mother’s and my favorite movies is Bette Davis’s Now, Voyager. “Now, Voyager is a 1942 American drama film starring Bette Davis, Paul Henreid, and Claude Rains, and directed by Irving Rapper. The screenplay by Casey Robinson is based on the 1941 novel of the same name by Olive Higgins Prouty. Prouty borrowed her title from the Walt Whitman poem “The Untold Want,” which reads in its entirety, ‘The untold want by life and land ne’er granted, Now voyager sail thou forth to seek and find.’”
It’s in that spirit of discovery that I made this blog. As my mom and I are going on a Da Mimmo’s Tour of Italy, I decided what better way to document our trip than a blog that our friends could follow. I’m a photographer, fine artist and designer (you can see my portfolio here.) My mother is also a photographer, but in addition a teacher, tech lover, and superhero. While we have been in Europe together before, this will be our first trip going together.
This blog will serve as our travel diary, notebook, photo stream, and journal. We hope you enjoy your visit as we enjoy ours.
