  1. I am so envious! Wish I was enjoying the trip with all of you - sounds like a fantastic itinerary. BTW, love the Osteria picture above - open for lunch (noon to 3), but don't even think about dinner before 700p! And, of course, you know it'd be empty at that hour too. Because you're not really hungry until 800p (regardless of what your body might be telling you)! So Italian.

  2. Wonderfully fun! I look forward to hearing about your adventures. :-)


we love hearing feedback!
