 Travel Time

This month we offer the first of several in-depth stories on places of interest to our customers. Written by award-winning writer Linda Robertson, these insightful tales will leave you wanting to see the world!

Here's an excerpt from our first offering:

"Just as we were beginning to worry that we had somehow missed the hostel, a voice rang out from the crowd at the back of the bus. 'Are you going to the hostel?' it said in beautifully accented English. A young woman then emerged from the throng and instructed us on how to get to our lodging from the bus stop. The guardian angel of Italian travel had struck again."
