I have to admit to a bit of jealousy as I've recently seen photos and read posts of friends who were visiting or living in Venice during Carnevale di Venezia (Carnival of Venice) during February 2017.

A taste of the Rhône Valley in Arizona
Our Introduction to Arizona Wines at LDV Winery. Mr. TWS and I aren't wine snobs. But we enjoy good wine, and we have been surprised a number of times finding it in unexpected places. Learning about new wine regions and sampling their varietals is something that we really enjoy when traveling. Recently, we had just such a surprise on a visit to our first Arizona winery tasting room, trying wines produced right here in our new home state of Arizona. That's right - Arizona.
