Children often wonder what it would be like to walk in their parents' footsteps, to go where they have gone and see what they saw before family life grounds them.
For most of us that idea of retracing our parents' footsteps is simply a flight of fancy, because of financial hurdles and the fact that our parents usually don't remember exactly where they went.
But for college student Lydia Coutré it was easy to go where her mother had gone when she'd visited Italy thirty years earlier because her mom took a ton of photos, which Lydia used as a pictorial tour guide.
Her trip down memory lane wasn't about the journey, because she would be spending a semester studying in Italy anyway, but it was no less important when completed and posted to her blog.
Lydia's photos show us how much, or how little, Italy has changed in the last thirty years, and the whole thing was great practice for her future career in journalism.
