The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Wanderlust- noun : a strong desire for or impulse to travel and explore the world.

Sticking to my word, and motivated by keeping contact with each of you, my dear friends and family while Pierre and I pursue our wanderlust, I am launching this website and blog.

We are never too old to learn, and in addition to learning Italian phrases to help us on the first leg of our trip, I have been self-teaching myself the practice of blogging. This has meant that I learn how to build a website. My young followers will think this is pretty elementary, but for a fresh retiree like myself…believe me when I say, it has been quite an exercise.

So, these pages are the results of a few hours of website 101. Hopefully, the navigation will improve as I add new content and learn more about blogging and website hosting.

As of launch date, content categories include a daily blog – which I commit to posting on a quasi daily basis, a photo of the day as I use my new SONY Digital Camera, acquired with my CMHC Appreciate points (thank you all :)). In the section titled uniquely Italian, I will include Italian words used in my blogs as well as cultural practices and experiences we have learned, blending with the locals of Tuscany. Finally, I have created a category called upcoming to keep you posted on our itinerary, and events we are looking forward to.

I invite your comments, suggestions, and feedback. Let me know if I am being too chatty — I have a tendency to do that…

So, godere!

I am an intuitive and experienced leader and come naturally to coaching. I have spent the last 20 years helping individuals get unstuck, to achieve their goals and objectives. I enjoy interacting with new people and helping them to disengage from the minutiae of situations to see the bigger picture. These conversations inevitably lead to inspiration and it is quite a feeling to finally know what you want to achieve and see the path to get you there. Many individuals I have helped just needed a plan to stop wasting their energies and have more focus, while others needed a bit more time and we customized sessions suited to their needs. In all cases, we achieved positive change in either their professional or personal lives.
