The Silence of the Truffles

Italy is full of food festivals. It’s awful. Through every season of the year they celebrate with chocolate, cheese, chestnuts and wine that flows from fountains (no joke, I don’t joke about wine flowing from fountains).

Slap me with a salami, I’m in Tuscany

A Sok in a Cave

Caving has never been on my bucket list, in fact, I don't have a bucket list, I tend to just roll along like a Double Gloucester wheel of cheese at the annual Coopers Hill Cheese Rolling Race. That's a great way to describe finding love actually, now I put some thought into it. You get... Continue Reading →
