Vacation Planning

Bizarre travel plans are dancing lessons from God.
Kurt Vonnegut, American author (1922-2007)

Trip planning Three Winos style involves wine, nibbles, a computer connected to a large-screen TV, and a fascinating segment of BBC's Invisible Cities documentary. Planning our Italian sojourn is great fun. Our itinerary is coalescing . . . mainly around wine and gelato. Next up are the Italian classes. They begin at the end of the month and I've been working up my vocabulary. So far I have:
  “Vino rosso”: red wine
  “Vino bianco”: white wine
  “Vino rosato”: rosé wine
  “Vino amabile”: medium-sweet wine
  “Vino dolce”: sweet wine
  “Vino secco”: dry wine
  “Vino abboccato”: semi-dry wine
  “Vino corposo”: full-bodied wine
  “Vino aromatico”: aromatic wine
  “Vino frizzante”: semi-sparkling wine

Stay tuned!
