“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of
all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance.
Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the
sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” – Cesare
Pavese

New Virtual Travel Classes: Florence and Siena

Take a Virtual Walking Tour!

Beat the winter blues with a little walking tour of Florence and Siena, two of our
favorite Tuscan cities! We’ll pace you through all the “must see” spots, then tip
you off to insider stops for food, wine and culture! 10am at the Krabill home in
McKinney! We will discuss Florence on Saturday March 5 and Siena on Saturday March
12.

News Flash: For those of you with Spring Break plans, we’ll have a bonus Siena
session on March 5 right after the Florence session so you can double down and take
both classes in one day.
The class is $50 for the two sessions, and you walk away with insider info, addresses,

Travel App Suggestion for Your Mobile Phone

My Maps
When we find a new travel app for your mobile phone, we let you know! Thanks to
“Friend of the Flavors” Jan Donatelli, we have recently downloaded the “My Maps”
Use this app to download maps to use for travel. These maps are resident on your
phone, so when you access them, you do not use that a piece of that precious, pricey
data package that you bought for overseas travel! At $1.99, it breaks the “I only
want free apps” principle, but come on, $2? Well worth it! It worked well in Cancun
recently, and we will give it a test while in Italy this April and bring you reports
on its performance.
Do you have a favorite travel app? Let us know and if it meets the standards of
our discerning review board, we’ll post it in next week’s news!

trips this year but that doesn’t mean you can’t get together your own group of six

Voglio Vivere Cosi
“I want to live like this!”
the video) at our Snider Plaza Store. This happy and lighthearted song was written
lyrics in English and Italian). A Tuscan tourism board has taken the tune as the
strange aspirational video that is worth a click.
Like last week’s phrase, “La Dolce Vita”, this song celebrates a sunny life lived
simply and deeply. So, when the winter grey closes in, I will choose to focus on
the Tuscan sunshine in my heart and think, “Voglio Vivere Cosi!”

What are YOU Doing for Carnevale?

Or Mardi Gras, If You Please!
Everyone knows about the fantastic and mysterious masked Carnevale celebrations
a haunting view of “La Serenissima” where costume-clad ghosts preen and pose in
the mist. But have you heard about Viareggio on the Tuscan coast? Click on this
