World Wednesday

A friend of mine told me about this and I have no idea where she got it from so no credit to list, and since she no longer blogs I can't credit her either.... but I figured I would give it a go since I love to travel!!!

World Wednesday.... a place in the world I have been or want to see to share with you all.

This is Guardia Sanframondi. A small town and comune located in Italy in the Province of Benevento in Campania Region.

One of my loves is genealogy. I have been researching my family history and King Papa Bear's family history for years! My grandmother's family is from this small town - The Pizza Family (not pizza, but pronounced pie-za) and The DeBlasio Family. She used to tell stories of the mountainous town known as "The Guard" that she heard from her mother and father as a child. She never made it to see Italy before she died.

I have never been there, and neither has anyone in my family that I am aware of, but I am awaiting the day I get to walk through the old town up stepped streets and see the Castle above the town that was used as a guard post during war. Or when I get to witness their penitential rite ceremony of the Madonna and Child statue found in a field hundreds of years ago. Or even visit and sample from the wineries! :) Most of all I want to view the family records kept in the town hall to learn more about my family.

Do tell me... where in the world do you want to go????
