It’s Always The People… Always!

Traveling abroad is usually comprised of different scenery, different cultures and different people. This time we enjoyed the historical elegance of Vienna, the grandeur of Lake Como, the beauty of the Croatian coast, the soft, rolling hills of Tuscany, the energy of Florence… yet the thing that always endures the strongest in our memories is […]


Weekend at Lake Como

It’s funny… the weakest link in our four-stop trip turned out to be a beautiful experience, on several levels. I wanted to see Lake Como.
