10. UP IN THE AIR SOUNDTRACK: A great movie with some great performances, but the soundtrack is also very good, well about half of it. Mixes new school and old school with some great messages. If you like travel, this is a great place to start with some music.
9: U2 GREATEST HITS. Ok, here's the thing. I'm not a obessive U2 fan or nothing. I just think they got some good tunes, its inspring, and they mean good. They aren't the next coming of Jesus, but,…Continue

In dedication to my new show about New England travel (Beyond the Beans).

What to tell you. For starters, don't drive in. Don't do it.
Park at the Piazzo de Michelangelo.
It's free. Then take a taxi in, or

SEASON 2 HAS ARRIVED! WHO'S EXCITED!?
So after saving some pennies for a bit after NZ, we've come to our next destination!

I'm writing on a laptop. Yes I am. I have a blackberry, not an iphone. I do not own a kindle, portable tv or an ipad. I resisted the VHS to DVD switch. I love my original nintendo and don't own (and never have) an xbox, playstation or Wii. I, however, am feeling guilty. On my travels there are some essentials. Computer, Camera, phone, Ipod, chargers (wall and car), dvd…Continue
