Ode to Sophia


We take a girlfriend with us on every trip. In Italy, it’s Sophia. We’ve known her for about 6-7 years. She has the attributes of a good friend. . . There when you need her, gently makes suggestions, becomes insistent when she knows you’re off course, and can be quiet for long stretches of time.

She knows everything but never boasts. She’s been everywhere. . . Even in tiny alleyways, up farm lanes, and down long driveways.


Only occasionally does she become confused, which might look like this. . .


Or this. . .


But mostly she has been everywhere we want to go, even before we’ve been there!


Please meet our best friend and trusted traveling companion, Sophia!!!
