112 Appaloosa Journal October 2018 back forty Where in the world is AJ? See Things YOU T HIS PAST AUGUST the journal was on the move once again. Vicki Evenson and Viane and Mike Staniszewski took the journal on their summer travels for a cruise through the Mediterranean. The first excursions covered some of the most historical places in Italy, including the Vatican, the lost city of Pompeii at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, and the beautiful national park of Cinque Terre. This park is a collection of five medieval hamlets built on the west coast of the Riviera. Once in the south of France, the cities of Nice and Eze were explored. We couldn't leave France without bringing out the journal in the city of Cannes where the famous international film festival is held. Last, there were stops in Spain to visit the island of Mallorca at the histori- cal La Granja where the Arabs set up a farmstead. Later it became the property of the Cistercian Monks and became known as "the farm." A final stop in Barcelona topped off the "once-in-a-lifetime" trip. It was interesting to see some of the Spanish horses that are likely descendants of some of the very same ancient Spanish horses that were brought to the United States and then became the stock that our Appaloosa breed originated from. ~ Vicki Evenson ON THE OCTOBER COVER Spot the hidden AJ horse Traveling somewhere interesting?
