Autonoleggio: The Worst Thing About Travel

No, no, no. There’s no such thing as cheap and cheerful. It’s cheap and nasty and expensive and cheerful -Jeremy Clarkson I’ve been traveling for quite a while now, and no matter where I go — Italy, the UK, France, Belgium, San Francisco — the absolute worst part of the trip is dealing with car rental agencies. And, when we…

(Nearly) a Month in the (Old) Country

I am not a great cook, I am not a great artist. But I love art and I love food, so I am the perfect traveler — Michael Palin It keeps getting better, Italy. And I’m pretty sure that’s not just a comparison to what’s been going on in the good ol’ USA these days. No matter where you stand…

In Abruzzo: Arrosticini on the Range

This article first appeared in DreamofItaly.com If you’re a fan of spaghetti westerns, you might recognize the location of Ristoro Mucciante, a barbecue-delipicnic spot on Campo Imperatore in the region of Abruzzo. This is the area Italians call “Little Tibet” because of its similar mountainous terrain, but also because of the geography of spirit that the area invokes. In 1970, Campo Imperatore was the site for a series of…

Happy National Poetry Month!

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash — Leonard Cohen I’m always excited when April comes around, because I can officially come out as a poet.

Happy Anniversary, Cucina Abruzzese!

It was one year ago this month . . . First, a huge box arrived. It took two of us to drag it into the kitchen. Like the “important award” box in A Christmas Story, the box said in bold letters: FRAGILE. Only this box really was from Italy. Inside was a cornucopia of all things Abruzzese. There were wheels…

On the Road Island Diner

In Utah: Behind the Zion Curtain — (I can’t take credit) I apologize for the radio silence. January was a trying month. Some friends rented our places in Sulmona to avoid being in the USofA to witness the events of January 20th and we treated them to an earthquake, a massive snowstorm and a nearby avalanche. They’re still talking to…

Finding My Words

Writing about a writer’s block is better than not writing at all. — Charles Bukowski It might seem strange to say that I have writer’s block when, for the first time in my life, I am in the middle of two manuscripts. One is a collection of poetry from my travels around Southern Italy; the other is a memoir about…

GUEST POST: Precautions To Ensure A Relaxing Vacation

Thanks to Jane Moore for this terrific and useful post. Jane’s mantra is: travel, eat your greens, move your body. Commit for a month and drop her a line to let her know how you feel! She loves exploring unfamiliar places and writing about her experiences on FitWellTraveler. There are many reasons to take a vacation. Visiting old friends and family, touring popular sites, or just going to find those out-of-the-way restaurants that serve the best local food are all great reasons. But above all else, a vacation should be relaxing. That’s the point! You need that downtime to recharge your batteries so you can better deal with the stress of work. But what happens when your vacation is the thing…
