The five of us (one Scottish, one South African, one from Isle of Wight, one Irish, and myself, the American) had a grand ole time in our drive. We start driving from Crawley,…

    Tyler

    When I first moved to Italy, I saw this incredible dessert in a pastry shop. I admired it for a minute or two, but I didn’t have the 24 Euro on hand to buy something I didn’t know if I’d like. It was this pie-like thing with an incredible lattice.…
