During one of my days of quarantine over the week-end, I decided to tackle a box of old photos that were stored in the garage. In 2002 my Geno and I traveled with 3 other couples on a wonderful adventure! We started in Barcelona for a few days, took a cruise to so many memorable places. Venice, Taormina, Corfu, Capri to name just a few stops (a story for each port for sure) and ended up in Rome for a few days.
Many men were wearing red shoes in Italy that year and of course they attracted Geno's attention and knew he'd have to go all over until he found a pair to wear home. It was a challenge because many Italian men wear smaller sizes than this Texas's size 12! It became a quest to find a pair of red leather Italian shoes.
Our friends and guide were all in.... committed to finding a pair. After many stops we hit pay dirt! Geno found a wonderful pair and wore them home! We still laugh to this day about our scouring Rome for his red shoes and the comments he received flying home!
