I have never shared my trip reports before – and I’m not sure how that happened. I’m linking here to all the reports I have posted on Italy (and Montreal) on fodors.com. They are a fun read.

Whenever I feel the desire to know myself and learn more about the deepest parts of my character, I find that my heart wants to go to Italy….
