The cobblestone streets of Stroncone | Italy Destination Highlight

It’s a quiet walled commune in Umbria. I would never have know about it had not my Italian brother and FYH Italy team Max and his family live just outside the walls, overlooking hills of olive trees.   When I say small, I mean population just over 4800. The younger...

Market Day in San Gimignano, Tuscany | Italy Real Travel Experience

We planned our week right when we were in Italy. Every Thursday in San Gimignano was “market day”. Every Thursday (Wednesday in case of a holiday) is an everything type market and then every Saturday, fruit and vegetable market (Friday in case of a holiday). It gives...

Carry-on Checklist As some of my blog readers may (or may not know) I tend to only use a carry-on when I travel. I wrote about it here once and listed all I bring on a 12 or more day trip. The reason being is so that I’m not lugging around a monster piece of luggage, weighing me...

The Grand Bazaar – Shopping Mecca || Istanbul, Turkey Destination Highlight
