Fellow traveler

I really love to travel and found her stories interesting. Although, some web sites are not current anymore, which is understandable. I think this would be better to actually have the book instead of listening, the spelling of some recommended hotels and websites were a struggle.

Local color to get geared up for Italy

This book was short and had some fun descriptions of food, some interesting stories about the places in Italy. I thought there would be more of both of those things, so I was a little disappointed.
