On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Balloon Juicers who are on the road, travelling, etc. and wish to share notes, links, pictures, stories, etc. from their escapades. As the US mainland begins the end of the Earth day as we measure it, many of us rise to read about our friends and their transient locales.
So, please, speak up and share some of your adventures, observations, and sights as you explore, no matter where you are. By concentrating travel updates here, it’s easier for all to keep up-to-date on the adventures of our fellow Commentariat. And it makes finding some travel tips or ideas from 6 months ago so much easier to find…
Have at ’em, and have a safe day of travels!
Should you have any pictures (tasteful, relevant, etc….) you can email them to [email protected] or just use this nifty link to start an email: Start an Email to send a Picture to Post on Balloon Juice
Today’s offering is, believe it or not, more Italy!
It’s late Sunday and I’ve just gotten my work PC back from the dead. Gotta love the Friday-morning-ordered, Sunday-afternoon-delivered-at-no-extra-cost Amazon service as I’ve now got a bigger, faster, new main drive plus memory upgrade for my laptop and I’m out < $150. Not bad for a major jump in responsiveness and speed on top of the the needed hardware replacement/upgrade. I chose a hybrid drive, so some SSD with smarts on top of the normal hard drive, and my old laptop is now crazy fast.
That all said, it’s time for bed and so here’s some joy. Have a great day all!
Today, some amazing stuff from opiejeanne. I could spend hours photographing all that stuff, thank you for sharing!
This is part 1 of a set of 10 photos of a pharmacy in Messagne Italy taken in September, 2014. The shop had been closed up for many years, and was left just as it had been when it first opened. My niece and her husband were living nearby and she got the owner to open the shop for us. He was very gracious and we thought the shop was beautiful. The shop had belonged to his grandfather, and if you look carefully you can see his portrait from WWI through the center cabinet, hanging on the wall behind it.
Veleni means poison and Erotici means exactly what you think it does.
I will send you part 2 in a few minutes.
This is part 2 of the pharmacy in Messagne, Italy. Veleni means poison and Erotici means exactly what you think it means.
You can see the original owner through the glass of the center cabinet, and you may see me reflected in one of the side cabinets.
So neat – thank you, travel safely, and do send more!
Have a great day and week everybody, I hope that it’s good all the way around!
