From our September 2018 trip to see family and attend the SRN Conference.
So many small places away from the bustle of the city. For me, discovering these places is one of the most exquisite joys of travel — whether far abroad or in your own hometown.
Milan is a great place to explore and discover. Some interesting places are on tourist guides and known to many others. These are wonderful, but it is the doorways, the courtyards, the side streets, the facades glimpsed at the end of a street luring you onward. I often find myself being pulled off my carefully planned path to one sight or another as it catches my eye.
This courtyard is the entrance to the Museo del Risorgimento (Museum of the Reunification of Italy – Google Translate). We explored its corners, finding steps to rest upon after thoroughly exploring the museum for research for @drrosannewelch ‘s latest book On Garibaldi. It was a hot day and the cool shade and stone were welcome discoveries if the mosquitos were a bit fierce. It is these experiences that stick in my memory and my photos.
