“One day I’m going to write a travel guide containing only maps and addresses of hotels, and with the rest of the pages blank. That way people will have to make their own itinerary, to discover for themselves restaurants, monuments and all the magnificent things that every city has, but which are never mentioned because “the history that we have been taught” does not include them under the heading Things You Must See.”
–Paulo Coelho, The Zahir
*32 days until we are on a plane to Italy. But who’s counting?
