Italy has always been on my list of places to visit, and was bumped up to first as I've been reading Desiring Italy, essays by women writers collected by Susan Cahill. Some, of course, tend towards the dull side, but most are vibrant and evocative, bringing the delights of Tuscany, Firenze, Emilia-Romagna, and Venice to life. Thus, if ever I have money again, I will be visiting this wonderful land. And reading of the lovely Miss Kate's adventures only makes my desire stronger--I want to travel, to have interesting settings for the perusal of interesting books.
