How to make wine…

A quick tutorial on wine making I shot while I was in Sora, Italy helping to make wine at the farm I was staying on. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite vino and enjoy the video!

Why you shouldn’t rent a car in Italy…

This is a video I took from the front of a public bus on the road between Amalfi town and Sorrento. The video doesn’t do the road justice. It was EXTREMELY narrow, with barely enough room for 2 cars to pass. Add to that buses, cars parked on the side, pedestrians, bicyclists, sheer cliffs, twists, turns, and dips and you can begin to understand why it is not recommended that you rent a car in Italy, especially on the Amalfi Coast. If you are crazy enough to do it, get car insurance. You will need it!

Whew, made it!

Ok y’all I survived the 20-some hours of traveling and am now in beautiful Melbourne! Well I’m guessing it’s beautiful…it’s just after midnight here so can’t see anything yet, but I’m sure it is! The trip wasn’t as bad as I was anticipating. In fact, the 10 hours I spent on a new airbus 380 were positively delightful, what with Thai airways delish food and free drinks. Now I’m safely ensconced in my pals’ spare room and just about ready to pass out. Thanks again Mel and Dayton for letting me crash!
