Week A'Way Florence, Italy
Every day starts with enjoying a cup of "Volcanica Coffee" as we dive in to God's Word. Read the Bible daily with us and join the conversation on "The Daily Way". Then we take a walk around our "neighborhood". We get off the treadmill and exercise our minds as well as our bodies. We dive-in to a different city each week as we strive to look "beyond the bricks" to gain a unique perspective for well-known sites, as well as for sites where there is nothing to "see". Knowing the back-story is what makes a site interesting. When a site has multiple back-stories, it gets really interesting. Without the back-story, ruins are confusing, buildings are just bricks, and you have no perspective on that which is no longer there. "The Daily Walk" is not a guide book, although we have those resources available to you. click Here for guides to over 700 cities worldwide including the city featured in this week's walks. Each day we will provide you with a Google map with a pinpoint of the location for our walk. Drag and drop the little guy into the map and take a look around for yourself. There will be a lot to see; too much for us to cover in this blog. We are going to focus on just one story each day. Monday through Thursday we will present a back-story "seen" on our walk through the "Week A'Way city. On Friday we'll venture out on a side-trip to a nearby attraction. Saturday, our back-story will focus on the culture, souvenir shopping, or food and wine. On Sunday, we'll look at the back-story of a "church". Many well-known churches have become more of a museum and a sight-seeing destination than a place of worship. When this is the case, the building is just a big pile of bricks. We'll look beyond the bricks to see the place as it was originally intended.

The Daily Walk
looks for stories beyond the bricks that you see. Places are interesting because of the back story. Sometimes the back story explains that which you see, and sometimes the back story gives you a perspective when there is nothing to see.
