+Catherine Sweeney tells us more about Tuscany!
Of the many highlights that Mr. TWS and I enjoyed during our stay in Tuscany, one of our favorites was learning about the rich art culture of Pietrasanta, a town near the Versilian coast (Tuscany’s Riviera) in the foothills of the Apuan Alps.

Next time you're in London, get scared... just a bit! #halloween  #London
The say that spirits have chosen to reside in the underground where the lost souls of the undead of London mingle with the lost souls of the living.

That's a most excellent trip-report, +Traveling Ted! Some epic photos there! The Ranger was not kidding about how slick the badlands get when wet - The badlands on the Canadian Prairies are like that too! You are much better off to just stay put or stay off the slopes once they are wet! The clay gets so slick it has to be experienced to be believed!!

Puglia for winter? +Agata Mleczko  thinks it's a very good idea!
I have never been to Puglia before. Since I enjoyed the idea of spending cold Polish winter elsewhere, which became a sort of a new tradition, there was a decision to make. I picked up Puglia, the most southern part of Italy. There were many reasons to come here. The weather was one of them, and the food too. I did not know that much about Puglia before I came and stayed for a while. Therefore, there was no real anticipation nor high expectations...
