    I recognize some of those wonderful places, Domenica. Anyone who has an inkling of interest would be lucky to travel and cook there with you to guide the way.

    Domenica, I know what I’ll be doing on those dates…wishing I were with you, Nancy and Michael in Abruzzo. I still haven’t stopped talking about the incredible experience of traveling with you and our small group. It was easily the best travel decision Jim and I have ever made. Abruzzo begs to be discovered, and the wonderful thing about our trip was that we discovered so much — art, architecture, history, natural beauty, friendly people, and of course great food and wine. We could never had done so much on our own, and never would doors have opened to us as friends and family without the relationships you three have developed with all the best places and people. My advice to anyone thinking about joining you in 2016: stop thinking and sign up today!
