Changes afoot

15 Dec
15 December 2017.
GoodDayRome is now Girovaga.  About time since we left Roma over a year ago. 
Girovaga is an Italian adjective, feminine form, meaning wandering. It can also be a noun meaning itinerant or wanderer. In its verb form, girovagare, the meaning is “to wander about.” That, hopefully, is fitting. 
All of the old posts, beginning in May 2012, are preserved so our five years of Italian living and traveling are documented. In the year since we returned to the U.S., I have blogged occasionally about life here as well as some of our travels, and that is what I will continue to do.
Some posts will be whatever crosses my mind. Others will be about travels near-and-far. 
If you are a subscriber to GoodDayRome, my new posts will still hit your mailbox but with the Girovaga title. I hope you’ll keep on reading along and sending me your comments. 
A dopo!

      Thank you Jill! Next trip is to Durango, CO for my birthday. My brother & SIL live there. We are in planning stages for Italy & Switzerland (and maybe somewhere else) for next fall.

      So nice to hear from you! Come up and see us sometime!

    I like the idea. Wandering is one of the great pleasures of being alive.
    I will look forward to where you wander TO. Mostly I enjoy learning what you are thinking. I window into a refreshing mind!

      Thank you dear Gayle! It took me ages to come up with a plan to move forward and not lose all the old material. I did not just want to shelve GDR and start a new blog. More to come!
