I am writing to you this fine Italian morning from the enchanting city of Trieste where spring has finally arrived after a rather wet April.

Wherever we are in the world, Maria, William, and I are always reminded of Italy's timeless allure by the silly little things we come across throughout the world. We'll share some of these with you this month.

We'll also take you to the tranquility of the Italian countryside on a luxury villa retreat, and embark on a journey through Neive's charm.
