Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES Rather than taking a plane and feeling miserable, you can drive down to the city all the way from Seattle. Going down features some stunning scenery with the Redwood Highway being the most memorable stretch of road for me. The mammoth trees are truly majestic and the roads are nice and curvy, with a fairly high speed limit.  The change in scenery as you exit Oregon and enter California is also something worth noting. It feels momentous as you break through the cool shade of the forests and get welcomed by the beautiful beaches and the Californian sunshine. It’s an awesome change of pace after hours of looking at trees.  Travelling via the California Sta... Read more

Cesenatico

Cesenatico is a port town with about 20,000 inhabitants on the Adriatic coast of Italy. It is located in the province of Forl¬-Cesena in the region of Emilia - Romagna, about 30 km south of Ravenna. Cesenatico's port canal was surveyed and drawn by Leonardo da Vinci at the request of Cesare Borgia, as part of his plans to fortify the nearby town of Cesena. Cesenatico has been developed for tourism, but not too much. What I mean is that there are monuments and museums, but you still feel the sting of diesel in your nostrils as the fishing boats chug out to sea.
