A number of years ago I read War in Val d'Orcia, An Italian War Diary 1943-1944 by Iris Origo.
I was fascinated by this diary of the ignoble times in Italy during WWII.
We visited the area in 2009 but couldn't find La Foce, it is well hidden. Another visit to the area in 2014 was successful.
I visited with a friend, late in the afternoon in June. We were lucky enough to have a guide that read from Origo's diary of that day. The sun was going down.
It was a stunning experience, like everything lined, the sun going down, the beautiful reading, my friend being there to share the experience. Unbelievable!
I have been extremely lucky to have traveled to some fantastic places but this moment was special.
I would like to challenge you to share your special travel moment.
