About Rover

Most of the photos here are my own.

I have a roving eye and a wandering mind. I travel a lot. I love street photography, contemporary art, words, well-put-together spaces and a great nest to come home to.

I like heading off the beaten path ; feeling foreign and invisible; traveling in style (whatever that may mean in the moment); and having long conversations on the open road.

When I'm home, I'm "Rover at Home" -- check me out at:

Roving Retirement, Italian Style

Bill and Carol Sansone are the envy of their friends. Acting on their passion for Italy they have gone back year after year to explore regions up and down the peninsula. Since 2005 they’ve taken six different destinations for a “test drive” in search of…
