This is based on a book by my GGGrandfather Edwin Rainbow. He was a journalist, author and Registrar of Birth and Deaths in Coventry, UK at the turn of the last century. He wrote this book in 1916 as a turn by turn description of several walks through his (and my) home city. It's like a time capsule as he describes elegant tree-lined avenues, the tram system and industries of the time. Most of the city was destroyed in WWII and it's fascinating to read what's still there and what's long forgotten.
Anzio is a seaside fishing town near Rome. It's a well known place for its historical events; Roman Emperor Nerone was born here and the ruins of ist villa are still around the coast. Tourists (and locals too) enjoy the delicious seafood Anzio is famous for. Every day fishing boats bring to the port tons of fishes and other precious delicacies from the sea. And the local restaurants serve the best and most delicious mediterranean meals! And let's not forget Anzio's amazing handmade gelatos! Wish you all to visit beautiful Anzio soon.
Stroll in the sunshine through the quintessentially British spa town of Harrogate. After bargain hunting for antiques in The Montpellier Quarter, take afternoon tea at Betty's historic tea rooms.

I lived in the little city of Dessau in eastern Germany for two years while going to grad school. Along with creating wonderful friendships, I most remember the delicious food, the historical architecture, and the charming rural feel of the surrounding forests.

I spent many weeks in southern Indian in my youth. In the near future I'd love to spend a month touring the 'golden triangle' taking in the stunning forts and multicoloured old towns. And as a Buddhist I'd love to visit Nepal and discover the history and heritage. Sampling the foods of each country would also be a big high light for me too.
