Benvenuti!

Welcome to my little space. A place for me to share my photography- the good, the bad and the in-between, but hopefully all with mind-set to grow. Most of the pictures are either from trips to Italy, nature and architecture in and around the Philadelphia suburbs and of course, my family pops in every once in awhile.

I dream to one day live in Italy and scour the countryside and the coasts for inspiring pictures and live happily ever after. There will be lots of pasta and gelato involved too!

  1. My family, who hails from the Greek Island of Kephalonia (Cephalonia), settled in a village called Tselentata. Many of the Tselentis who lived there had Italian origins, and to find your website with beaches in Selento really opened my eyes. It’s possible that my family settled in Greece after leaving Selento, but no relatives attest to that, as many of the 1st generation has died. Curiously, what names hail from Selento? Are there any Selentis? Selentas?

    I’m not certain of the names in the Salento region of Puglia but I would be willing to look into it for you. My family on my mother’s side are all from Puglia while my father’s side is from Abruzzo.
    The Salento area is really incredible…the beaches are immaculate, the farms stretch for miles along the coast and the people are as warm as the weather!

      So nice to meet you too! I found you on goodreads through your email and sent you an invite.
      Thanks for the compliment on the photos, I haven’t updated this blog in forever! I have another family blog that gets updated a little more frequently.
