Colors of Umbria

I couchsurfed with a lovely couple near Perugia, and these photos are from a walk we took near the house.

We also took a day trip to Assisi, which has charm, cobblestone, and of course, cathedrals.  Oh, and a castle, too.  It is the city of peace.

Views from the castle.

We sorted (and ate) many apricots from the family farm.

After couchsurfing, I stayed on a farm and explored the area on a rusty old beach cruiser.

Though I have no pictures of sunflower fields, there were many.  I had this romantic, idyllic desire to see fields of sunflowers, but in reality the shriek of yellow nodding heads made me feel a bit seasick.

And that was Umbria.


  1. I love the picture of the apricots in the wheelbarrow! They look so tasty!

    1. :) They were! Nothing like fruit off the tree.
