We are a freelance writing and photography team focused on travel, wine, food and adventure. Our experiences are normally situated in Northern California but we often venture to all Californian directions, Nevada and Europe. We love Italy (8 times in 10 years), France (2016 and 2018), Germany (2014), Switzerland (2016 and 2018), Slovenia and Croatia (2018 for both). Our adventures typically focus on the countryside and we almost always rent our own car to have the full range of experiences.
We like nothing more than getting out there and experiencing the world, no matter if it’s a destination close to home, a road trip, or a journey to a romantic international destinations.
Clearly our near annual European treks (the past ten years) to the Italian countryside (including Sicily, Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio, Liguria, Puglia, Lombardi, Piemonte, the Aosta Valley and the Veneto) in Italy and the Alsace, Provence, Burgundy in France, Slovenia, Croatia, Bavaria and Geneva indicate our biases. We love these slow food and wine adventures and hope our subscribers will, as well.
Join us as we explore new adventures and terroir and discover, perhaps well-known, but more likely special, small, and not so well-known venues, wineries, kitchens and adventures.
