Getting Through Tight Spots

Sometimes the only way to proceed is to keep moving forward. I haven't decided yet if a GPS (Global Positioning System) is a friend or foe. Certainly it is an amazing technology yet like life, when you listen to someone else's directions, you could find yourself down a road you didn't intend to travel.

Driving through Tuscany we were looking for the home town of my grandfather and behold we found it, but not without its difficulties. The road in the picture was not constructed for vehicles, more like horse drawn carriages. But since backing down the hill was nearly impossible, the only option was to proceed forward with only an inch of space to spare on each side.

Fortunately we made it, and without a scratch, but the best part is now everyone in the van has a thrilling tale to share after we get home.

Life is full of tight spots to navigate and when they show up in life I try to remember the great lesson from one of my favorite movies, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Here it is....its all going to work out in the end, and if something is not worked out, its not the end.

Travel well and travel happy......ciao.
