John Steinbeck and his dog Charley took a trip to re-discover America – maybe you’ve read the book? In it Steinbeck writes, “I saw in their eyes something I was to see over and over in every part of the nation – a burning desire to go, to move, to get under way, anyplace, away from Here. They spoke quietly of how they wanted to go someday, to move about, free and unanchored, not toward something but away from something. I saw this look and heard this yearning everywhere in every state I visited.”
Maybe you feel this way too? We do, and it’s not about being unhappy ‘Here’ – we love ‘Here’. But our hearts flutter at the thought of going. And this trip is not just going anywhere – it’s going to Italy! For 65 days! And we want to share it with you – that’s why we’re here. We’ll do our best to show you each city we visit; show you with words and photos what it’s like to be right there with us.
