From Africa to Italy – The passion to travel

 “With age, comes wisdom. With travel, comes understanding.”
- Sandra Lake


From the serene sunset on the African Savannah to the delicious wine tasting and pasta-making in Italy, I have been blessed to travel to amazing places. Travel brings me a sense of true peace and connection.  

In Botswana, I could hear the sounds of birds chirping, alerting the impalas of impending doom from a pride of lions soon to be stalking them.  Life here lies in such a delicate balance.   One day at a time without expectation – fully committed to whatever Mother Nature had in store for us- that’s how we approached our safaris in our small jeep as we drove amidst the animals.. Seeing young elephants in play, to the zebras foraging on the grasses alongside the wildebeest, or to the watering hole where the various animals congregated during the day to get their fill of much needed hydration, these crystal visions will forever be with me in my heart and soul.

Here are some more of my favorite pics from my recent safari adventure.


Now Italy is calling my name and I’m planning another adventure to a small town called Orvieto in Umbria, Italy.  This idyllic place is special to me and my good friend, Cheryl Alexander.  She has spent over 20 years taking small groups on breath-taking excursions through the Italian countryside. 

Who wants to learn how to make fresh pasta from a local Italian expert?

Or taste unbelievable organic wine using the grapes picked from the vines flowing across the verdant hills surrounding Orvieto?

To experience these things as well as explore the Etruscan ruins and meet the local townspeople in this beloved city makes for a new adventure each and every time.  I love visiting the local farmer’s market, looking at all of the amazing fresh fruits and vegetables, smelling the fragrant, freshly cut flowers and admiring the artisans’ creations displayed with pride.

Here are some pics from a recent trip to Italy.

  • I really enjoy seeing your pictures, Diana. Your travels remind me to stop and enjoy the world around me, even when work seems important and demanding . Thanks for sharing.

  • As always you add more knowledge to our “woman brain/body bank”. I love I…and you! I wish that I had found you earlier, but I’m so thankful that I did find you when I did. You saved me from the ignorance that was even more abundant then. You are the shining light in the even today darkness of ignorance about us women. You continue to lead us in the ongoing battle for knowledge!!!❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹
