A great write up on how Amarone is made and a fab tip for getting a 'baby Amarone' at a bargain price. #wine   #Italy  
We get asked a lot about wines in the sub-$20 range, but how do you find a nicely priced Amarone wine? Learn about a significantly cheaper style of Valpolicella wine as well as why Amarone wine costs so much

Great list! I usually bring Airborne with me to avoid getting sick and I never travel without a pashmina, which I use the same way you use a sarong. I skip the flip flops unless traveling to a beach locale ;)   I usually keep my carry-on packed with the basics including my 3-1-1 quart-sized liquids bag which I top off and replenish as soon as I return from a trip. This is a huge time saver for me since I really only need to pack my clothing/accessories for my next trip!  I've never taken the papaya enzyme - I'll have to check that out!
There are many things you are going to want to take with you on every trip you take. Keeping them in your carry-on will help make packing easier.

If you LOVE Italy and Coffee - then make sure you spend time in an Italian bar. I've got some popular coffee drinks to order too.
