Day 7: Caro Nome

How Progetto Voce, Yoga, and Verdi Helped Me Conquer My Fears PashbyMaul Adventures is slowly using up our bandwidth that we need to last until next Friday, so the video of my singing may need to wait to be uploaded until we're back in the States.  This afternoon marked my final performance with Progetto Voce, … Continue reading Day 7: Caro Nome

Day 8: Our Low Impact Pledge

This last month I have been convicted to lower our personal impact on the environment after reading a book called No Impact Man.  I found this book to be an inspiration which asks and inspires its' readers to ask, "can one person really make a difference?  Can that person be me?"  As part of our post-move-vegetate-TV-binge, we … Continue reading Day 8: Our Low Impact Pledge

Day 13: Choosing Gelato at Veronica’s Gelateria

Mentioning the word "Italy" brings many stereotypically dolce vita things to mind: piazzas, opera, Roman ruins, pizza, pasta, wine, fashion, meandering, and of course gelato.  While not addicted to ice cream by any means, gelato certainly deserves some attention in our 100 day count-down!  There is nothing more refreshing on a hot day (think 35C … Continue reading Day 13: Choosing Gelato at Veronica’s Gelateria
