This was a lovely hotel, and the front desk personnel were always cheerful and helpful. The hotel had a restaurant where we had dinner and it was absolutely delicious.

All the chocolate here is delicious so you get quality and quantity at the same time! I’m sure the more discerning ...
... tendency to always look to the future. I'm always thinking about the next stage in life and how I can't wait to get there. I always think "once I do this then I'll have made it and I can relax." I believe that I have gained more of an ability to live for the present. To embrace each day and absorb as much as I can in the moment. I remember camping in Follonica and being completely miserable after trying to ...
