      "I had a lot of fun with the tour of Italy. On the volcanic island of Stromboli, we watched eruptions. We even saw a man that looked just like Santa standing next to a green and red boat."

      "Valle dAosta is the closest thing on earth to what a fairy tale village would look like. Nestled at the base of a Mont Blanc, the town is charming and unlike any other place Ive ever been to. Something about it all is very surreal."
