thank you from the editor

Wait… don’t turn the page, this is not a boring editors letter… Well I hope not anyway!

Rome is the most incredible place I’d ever been, the people, the food & of course the architecture are unbelievable. The trip took in Cinque Terre - “God’s Country” I call it, an eclectic bunch of buildings that somehow complement each other to form a beautiful place. In…
