The dust has settled from my vacation and the traveling I had to do for my art show, so I'm just now getting down to looking at photos and reliving our wonderful vacation with you in Calabria. Thanks to you both and to Andrea for a fantastic time. All of your hard work and attention to detail provided all of us with great experiences from the beautiful places we stayed to the wonderful tours, (who would have thought any of us would have the opportunity to visit a centuries old monastery at dusk, or have a private tour of a former wool factory, both in spectacularly beautiful locations), great meals in beautiful settings, and hands on food prep. We shared so much fun and laughter. It was as if all of us became a little traveling family for a week. I would do this again in a heartbeat! I know your subsequent table tours will be just as wonderful for your next set of adventurers. Please give my best to Andrea. His translating and historical and cultural information gave us a wonderful perspective on all the places we visited. If I ever get my photos organized I'll post some of the better ones on Facebook or put up the link to my picasa site. Again many thanks and have a great holiday season.

I could go on forever talking about how wonderful the tour was. It is hard to consolidate my ideas into one paragraph!
I highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to visit the region of Calabria and experience its beautiful scenery, warm, generous people and delectable regional cuisine. Cherrye, Tania and Andrea went above and beyond to make sure our small group experienced as much as they could possibly squeeze in to one week. From Morano Calabro to Tropea, we hiked, toured picturesque villages, saw cooking demonstrations, made pasta and dined on incredible food. The wine flowed freely and was wonderful. What made the tour so special was the participation of the agriturismo and restaurant owners in our daily activities. They were so passionate about showing us the history and beauty of their country and dining and dancing with us that we felt like locals instead of tourists. And our tour guides made sure that we had everything we needed during the tour. We experienced "la bella vita" of Calabria and will most definitely return!

Linda and I haven't stopped re-living our fabulous tour. Now that my granddaughter's wedding, which was a fairy tale event, is over Linda and I are going to have a pasta making evening next week Thank you Cherrye and Tania for a memorable trip.

I hope this e-mail finds all of you well. I've been meaning to write you sooner as well as upload my pictures for everyone to see, but somehow life keeps getting in the way. I think of our vacation often. It was such an amazing trip. Not only was the scenery, the wine and food (OMG, the food!!!) fantastic, but I think the most special part of the trip was meeting all of you. I hope our paths cross again someday if you're ever in the Boston area, please look us up! Take care and Arrivederci.
