The view from Verona

When you have a baby, your view of the world shifts. That includes your view of the future, of time, of space, of a human's basic needs, of love and laughter, friendship, family, eating with two hands, and basically anything else in life that you can imagine.

Travel also goes through a drastic change. So, in order to prepare ourselves for our giant trip to Canada, we've decided to first take a small car trip to Verona, Italy.

Here's how our view of travel has adapted...

The 1st Century arena (Roman amphitheatre), now opera house, in Verona.
Locks on a gate across from what's known as "Juliet's balcony," Verona. That's Juliet of Romeo and Juliet. The locks are surrounded by messy love-note graffiti and heart-shaped wads of gum.

Juliet's balcony, said to have something to do with Shakespeare, but apparently only added on to the Villa Capuleti in the 1930s to attract Verona tourists.

A romantic, self-serve laundromat where we watched the inserts for our cloth diapers roll around in a dryer.
