Hudson Grace

April 7, 2016


I always tell people, my brother lives the exciting life – having spent two years in Manhattan and now in San Francisco – his is definitely the more exciting life!  While I reside in subdued Calgary, I enjoy the perks of having a place to crash in a city I’ve grown to love, almost more than New York!  Words I never thought I would say!

What’s not to love about San Fransisco? Views of the bay, amazing food, no need for a gym membership (the hills are killer!), world class wine just a short drive away, and the weather – sublime.

The Amalfi Coast is a 50-kilometer stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region.

The first stop for most on the Amalfi is NAPLES, which many write off as a dirty, tattered and unruly city.  But look past the grit and grime and you’ll uncover one of Italy’s most artistic cities, full of breathtaking frescoes, sculptures, and palaces.  And the food!  Naples serves up some of Italy’s best food, especially pizza, which in and of itself makes it a must for your Italian itinerary.
