Rich and Linda, shown here at the Avignonesi Vineyard in Montepulciano, Italy.   Anthony Bourdain put it best:  we eat, we write, we travel, and we’re hungry for more.  Oh yeah… and we golf.

By the way:  We really appreciate readers and commenters to this blog.  We know that these writings are sometimes self-absorbed – “ooh, look what we’re doing” – but these writings are really just about having fun, and they serve as a great diary for our reference and our memories.

Wonderful blogs on Spain – My husband and I are spending 50 days in Spain starting Easter Week. I speak some Spanish.

I’ve looked on your site for costs – it’s difficult to determine, but certainly doesn’t look to me to be very Rick Stevish.

Any suggestions?

Rick Stevish? Uh – no thank you. We prefer local, out of the way places. If you go where Rick suggests every other tourist will be sure to be there!

Hi Linda,
I just want you to know how much I’m enjoying your blog. It sounds like you’re having the time of your life and the food all looks and sounds delightful. As always, I’m jealous. We leave for Nebraska Sunday so I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to follow your wonderful adventure but I’ll do my best to keep up. See you in April. Pam

Thanks, Pam. We are having a wonderful adventure and can’t wait to meet my sister in Italy on Friday. Have a great trip to Nebraska – looking forward to getting together again in April.

really enjoy reading about your Amalfi trip. I have some questions and I’d love your feedback on what i’ve planned thus far. You three have almost truly seem to be on the same page as us with regard to how we like to vacation. 🙂 We’re leaving Sept. 19 thru Oct. 3rd. So looking forward to it. We’ll have 8 days in Praiano. May I contact you via email? I don’t see a contact link. I am at tsprops@gmail.com. Or Facebook under Teresa Smith. Would love to hear from you!

Hi Linda

Wonderful tips for the walk to Nocelle (Amalfi Coast). Do you think I can do that with my family (wife and 2 kids – 14 and 10) on this January? We will be at Sorrento on January 4. Do you recommend your guide Ana? Do you have any means to contact her?

Thank you

Hi Flavio –

Thank you for the kind words. Absolutely you can do this with your family. It is an awesome walk – really not too strenuous except for all the steps DOWN at the end. But that is after you have a nice, relaxing lunch! Anna Naclerio is a great guide. Reach her at a.naclerio@email.it. Also, here is a good pdf article about the trek: http://www.giovis.com/hpage/pathgodstrailbook.pdf

Best wishes,
