Vroom with a View

It was a late-night television commercial that finally drove me to pursue a long-held dream of riding around Italy on a Vespa. Not one spruiking a CD of Dean Martin’s Italian Love Songs for $19.95 plus postage and handling. Rather, it was a ninety-second spot for Tae Bo fitness tapes.

I keep coming across great reviews of Australian travel writer Peter Moore’s book Vroom with a View. It’s still not available in the US, but you can order it from Amazon.co.uk.
