Favorite Travel Experience: I was having dinner in a restaurant in Assisi, Italy set into the hillside, with a view overlooking the countryside and the sun slowly setting. At the bar two Franciscan Monks with full robes and Birkenstock sandals sat, drinking the same local wine we were enjoying. The view was breathtaking, the food was incredible and the people were very special. We stayed out late (10 PM) and the little pensíon that we were staying in locked its doors. The proprietor was sleeping in a chaise lounge awaiting our return. He let us in and gave us a drink and sent us off to bed!
