Traveled to Italy for work and spent most of the week in the southern tip on the coast. Hotel where I spent most of my week We had long days and truly did a lot of work, but in the evening we were able to hit a few of the local haunts for a drink The Grappa was strong! women's bathroom signmen's bathroom sign I did not need to understand Italian to know which bathroom was mine! Eventually the week was over and took a flight to Rome. The next morning I would be flying home, but I was able to explore Rome at night. It had just rained so the streets were pretty empty. This gave me some amazing…

Last year my wife and I traveled to Bermuda and absolutely loved it during the off season.  We stayed for almost a week but left the day before Thanksgiving to have dinner back home with family.  We've been going out to dinner at nice restaurants for many years but last year was the end of that with bad experiences on year after another all culminating to the prior year being our last. My wife and I, with the helpful prodding of our daughter, convinced my parents to come with us to Bermuda this year and stay through Thanksgiving.  We had no idea where we were going to eat or exactly do, but we knew we would have a good time…

We traveled to Bermuda to see the America's Cup and to dual celebrate our anniversary but mainly because we (well, mainly me) wanted to see the AC boats and races.  The fact it was a Bermuda was secondary.  I always knew of Bermuda, it's where my Grandparents went when I was younger, but knowing about a place and having it on your radar as a location to visit are two different things. Let's just say Bermuda was not on my radar. But after going to Bermuda for the America's Cup, I have to say that I just fell in love with the place and will be back.  I tried to make sure I told all the locals I ran into…

Recently got back from the America's Cup in Bermuda.  What a great place to hold this event.  In case you've been away for a spell, here's a spoiler alert... Oracle didn't win.  Actually they lost soundly.  No fault of their own, they really busted their butts but Emirates just proved to be sailing far too perfectly to lose.  After a very rough start during the preliminaries for Emirates, they got the boat, the water, the crew, everything fine tuned.  So much so they hit the once thought nearly impossible goal of reaching 100% fly time. Yes, 100% fly time during one of their races.  With that kind of perfection there is no catching them. It will be interesting to see…
