Travels in Italy

Annie O’Shea is traveling through Europe this winter as part of the Intercontinental Cup Circuit for Skeleton. See older posts from Annie, 12.10.2008 and 12.17.2008. She sent me a few photographs from her travels, see below. Or you can check them out on her blog. Annie always mentions the charm of European cities for their narrow streets and shops, and historic buildings as the norm.  She may not be a preservationist by training (skeleton is her thing), but she always recognizes what people appreciate about historic preservation. And isn’t that what we hope for – that people appreciate what we do and what we value?  Thanks for sharing your photos, Annie. Go USA!

    Jennifer: I hear you. I’ll keep dreaming with you. You never know! =)

    (And keep in mind, Annie does slide about 80mph head first, on a sled, down one mile of ice, without padding! Crazy, perhaps…? haha).

Have a thought to share?
