In my former life, I was a corporate lawyer. In my current life, I co-own and run a small winery and agriturismo in Italy, and write for the joy of writing. Get in touch at: [email protected] and https://fromcorporatetovino.com
I Had to Climb to Everest Base Camp to Figure This Stuff Out
I wanted to do something ‘memorable’ for my 30th birthday. So I decided to do a 14-day, gruelling trek to Everest Base Camp. EBC is at an altitude of 5,364m (or 17,600 ft) — yes, I’m a sucker for punishment.
I Quit! Why I Left My Corporate Job and Moved to Europe
It’s a simple question but difficult to answer. Yes of course there was the lure of the European/Italian way, the beauty of this magnificent country, and the temptation of all things gastronomic. For me, however, it was much more than that.
The Tuscan red wine you need to try right now
Now that I have your attention, let me say — I know what you’re thinking. Ok, she’s talking about Chianti. Nope. You may know Chianti. You may know the Brunellos. You may also know about the Barolos….but I would be pleasantly surprised and very proud (as a resident of the town that produces it) if you knew about (drumroll please!)
Writing to Improve My Mental Health
I am a Self-Expert, i.e. no one knows me better than me. That’s my ‘credibility’ for writing this piece. Why should you carry on reading? Because no one knows you better than you and some of the things that apply to me may apply to you. We are fundamentally the same (but different).
The Watermelon Diet was not for me. So I did this instead.
A few years ago I read about the watermelon diet — it entailed eating nothing but watermelon for three to seven days. Yikes. Well, I’m happy to report that as tempted as I was (not), I didn’t follow that diet or any other fad diet for that matter. However, I can understand what drives people to such diets.
