3 (Perfect) Days Away

The Olympics are almost here in Italy--just three more days--and, while there have been torches passed and reminders given, I don't feel very close the action up in Torino (well, we are quite a drive away). Still, it's the Olympics, and now, with Antonello and me considering going to Torino for mountain-climbing this summer, I was happy to find news of the city and its sites over at Hemispheres Magazine's Three Perfect Days.

Hemispheres Magazine is United Airlines' inflight magazine, and it is surprisingly good in terms of writing and photography. I've loved it's Three Perfect Days series for a long time--articles about everything from days in Rome to Montreal to Bangkok give you a getaway for a long weekend.

And this time, I can finally learn a little something about Torino for our upcoming trip (and, of course, for following along better once the Olympics finally get here).

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
