Somehow, probably on the train from Bari to Rome, I lost my travel journal. This is slightly sad because I had many good notes in there about both the trip and the brewing book; it is not a huge disaster because I never carry anything but a fresh notebook on a trip (for just this reason). Also, I had blogged notes to that point, and (being compulsive) also carry a very small, sturdy notebook in my camera case which is largely the net for my scribbled notes as we wander.
Still, I am hoping someone found it, will read the plea inside the front cover ("This is a private journal and of no use to anyone but the author. Please return to me at this address and I'll send you $50) and one day I will open my mailbox to find a package from Italy.
Totally jetlagged here today, but home safely and Boy #2 really took great care of cats and dogs and house.
Look for illustrations and more travel notes in the next week.
