It can be very difficult to choose a vacation destination. So many places, so little time. I watch travel shows, read books and magazines and yes, they are all wonderful. However, I have now added a new tool to my bag of tricks: YouTube!
I cannot believe there is a place in the world that hasn’t had a YouTube video done about it. The quality may or may not be great but you will get a view of possible destinations that you will not get from any other medium. My husband and I just returned from Corniglia, Italy, in the Cinque Terre. The town (along with the other towns in the area) is small, built into rocky cliffs and the best (and often only) way to get around is on foot. . . particularly up all the steps that have been trod over many, many centuries. People made YouTube videos of themselves carrying luggage up hundreds of steps and while these videos were funny, they taught me to pack lightly. For the first time in ages, I wore the correct shoes (yes, I left the heels home) and even got the best sense of what the acceptable fashion was in the area than I ever had for prior trips. Yes, we will be posting our pictures soon and will let you know where they are!
The best news was that all that exercise allowed for some extra pasta and gelato!
