Well, it's official. I'm being paroled again next month. But this time, it's only for two weeks instead of two months so there probably won't any globetrotting around Europe going on. Virginia and the X Man are going back to the States from August 23 until September 8.
I haven't given much thought what I might do while they're gone this time, but I've got another month to think of a few things. I was thinking perhaps I would finally go check out the Piedmont region and stock up on Barolo. Or maybe spend another weekend in Rome? And then there's always the Venice Pub Crawl as a fallback. But more than likely, I'll end up spending most of my time up in the mountains on the Brenta River.
As always, I'm open to suggestions...
