I have so much to share from my trip to Italy in April. Like last year, I got to go to Bologna for work for the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, one of the biggest book fairs in the world for children’s books. And also like last year, I decided to take advantage of the work trip and add on some vacation days to travel.
In mid-May, my family went down to Dallas, Texas for my nephew’s first birthday and baptism. My sister-in-law’s family is from there and so we decided to have all the festivities there in one weekend. I had never been to Dallas before or anywhere in the South and of course I’m always down to explore someplace new. Here’s what happened.
In my office, we have a few Scottish lassies. One year, they sent out an email to everyone inviting us to partake in a glass of whisky up on the top floor to celebrate Robert Burns. I had no idea who this Burns guy was or why they were celebrating him. Fast forward to this past January and I figured out the mystery of Mr. Burns.
