Travel slowly, staying in vacation rentals (villas, farms, cottages, apartments)
I love Europe and above all Italy. I generally make my own
arrangements and travel alone. For me, the planning (particularly since the
Internet) is half the fun. I also enjoy the challenge of traveling in Italy
by myself. Other than that, I am sane.
