I have made extensive trips to Florence, Rome, Venice, based out of Verbania on Lago Maggiore. I love to travel whenever I get a chance. Looking primarily for retirement spots within the next 6-8 years, outside of the US. As a seasoned traveler, I look for spots that may not be frequented by the masses and my yearning for a particular food might send me to some place that may not score high on local boards. Always honest about my experiences. Love to just pick up a drive 100 miles to try something different. Watch out for us, we may be near you soon.
