Enjoying Italy to the Last Drop

May 27, 2011

The days are winding down, fast. We officially have one week left in Italy. In one week we’ll be in the Big Apple, we’ll be enjoying Thai food and Central Park. But I have to put those thoughts aside for a while. As my time in Italy comes to an end, I am doing my [...]

One Month from Today…

May 3, 2011

I cannot believe how fast time has gone! I have officially ended my stint as a tour guide (hey, for now anyway) with a month full of travel. I saw the Amalfi Coast three times and Corfu in Greece for the second time (one was enough… really… I’ll explain later). I’m currently in a frantic [...]
