It feels a bit strange reflecting back to well over a month ago when we left Milan for the coastal town of Sestri Levante (one of our favorite spots in Italy) just north of Cinque Terre. Kevin was on his winter break (called “White Week” because most people go snow skiing). We had just spent a fabulous few days with our friends David and Casie, exploring some wineries in the Piedmont region, enjoying Barolo wine and learning about the winemaking process. The remainder of the week would be spent with our friend Wayne, hiking and showing him some favorite spots less travelled by American tourists. We couldn’t wait.
