After a truly memorable almost month-long vacation in il bel paese, it’s time to get back to my blog. I was posting everyday until mid-June and then I need a break. I’ve got lots of experiences and wines to share and I look forward to it. I hope you do too. Whoever has hung in and read my blog throughout these past weeks without new material, thanks for sticking with me. Whoever has fallen away, hopefully you will come back. I hit the 10-year mark for this blog in May this year and it has become an integral part of my life so I’m not throwing in the towel. Just took a much needed rest under an ombrellone at the beach.
