If it’s worth saying, then it’s worthy of your pen.

If it’s worth seeing, then it’s worthy of your lens.

Words without images, and vice versa,

Makes sharing your blog posts that much worsa.

Best wishes to you in M-M-X-I-V,

And here’s hoping you’ll continue to meander along with me.

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him in and out of 49 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along cobblestone streets that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway somewhere in the Veneto. You can also follow his dispatches from the cobblestone at TravelingBoy.com and ItalianNotebook.com.


  1. I wish you many happy moment at table with your friends, with a great wine in hand, and especially with your eye behind a lens. I look forward to another year of great posts.🙂

      1. I think I’m going to have another look under the tree – oops, we took the tree down yesterday so we can head back south. Maybe he had it mailed to our FL address.😀

  2. Tom, wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year! Looking forward to more photos and wonderful articles in 2014…
