This feels a little like a flashback to elementary school days, when every student was forced to recite those dreaded  ‘How I Spent My Summer Vacation’ reports to the rest of the class.

So as we move into the lovely season of autumn, I want to recap over the next few weeks some of my summer travel highlights from Italy, South America and Downeast Maine.

Stay tuned …
