... meals were huge and there was no way we could get through it all. We think they may have been concerned that we did not like it, because when we asked for our bill, they bought us out complementary limoncello.

After being in so many cities and seeing so many hilltop views, you’d think it would start to get old. But every time I look over a city I have just siteseed through, I feel so accomplished.
