Photoglimmer: Those Red Shoes

3 Comments 28 March 2013

Standing in what politicians call Spain, looking north into what politicians call France. Truth is, we were neither place.

2 Comments 25 March 2013

When I dream of 2012, I dream of Chianti. Never mind that long ride around France – I left my heart in the sweeping vineyards and charming restaurants and tiny streets of Tuscany. I count myself endlessly lucky to be able to go back and take a few food-bike-and-wine loving ladies with me. Lecchi will [...]
