Since we bought our apartment in Bagni di Lucca in northern Tuscany almost 15 years ago I spend 6 months of every year in glorious Italy. I am often asked by first time visitors to Italy how to make the most of their trip. Time is precious and there is much to see.   If …more

Stop Horsing Around

No matter how much research and preparation you do before traveling, things aren’t going to go exactly as you planned them. Flexibility is the key. The sooner you learn to roll with the punches the more fun and less stress you’ll have on your vacation.   During a recent trip to Iceland, we woke up …more

Making the Most of Cuba in Two Weeks

Cuba grabs you by the throat and spits you out dancing. It’s not always easy, and it’s impossible to escape the poverty, but it’s always fascinating.

I have now lived in my tiny house on wheels for a year. It is a gypsy wagon also called a vardo, lovingly built by John Kaznecki of Maine. We set it on a Ford F150 truck with 5’x8’ bed last March.   How did this happen?   Well, I retired from work at the …more

Yes indeed, many head to Thailand for a taste of wild-life, but it’s also an awesome place to encounter wildlife.
