based in los angeles, lived 7 years in California and 15 in Boston. Originally from Italy. Traveled a reasonable amount in Europe while growing up (Italy, France, UK, Germany, Austria, Spain). Spent few weeks in Japan, China, Mexico and Chile. In recent years I have been mostly traveling by car the US (I crossed it 3 times in the last 7 years) and I can't get enough of it. The West is definitely my favorite, but I have wonderful memories of the South.
