Photo du Jour: Hello, Sunshine! – Udine, Italy

“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.” -Victor Hugo

A glimmering sunshine greets passersby from the clock tower of the Loggia di San Giovanni. The graceful, 16th-century structure commands a prime spot on the Piazza della Libertà, in UdineItaly. I was lucky enough to explore the elegant city in Italy’s Friuli region one spring ago, while my husband attended class not far from Venice. La dolce vita indeed!

    • Hi Sid, it’s needed here in Germany too. Yesterday, however, we did have a beautifully sunny, warmer day. Posting this burst of sunshine must have worked some magic with Mother Nature. :)

  1. Even though I’m living in all-year summer, I really miss southern Europe. I’d take a grey winter day in Italy or Spain any day!

    • Diana, you’re living in Singapore, right? We spent the winter in SE Asia last year, so I can relate to missing the charms of Europe when away. The “grass is always greener,” isn’t it? I would love some snake-skin fruit, fresh mango, and orchid sightings to go along with the snow that’s gracefully dancing from the sky here right now. :)
