    Re: Dreaming and planning

    So this reminds me of another boring story. Short version. When I was in grad school, my girlfriend at the time and I went one winter to Kitzbuhel. She spoke very good German. So the innkeeper gets a...

    Re: Dreaming and planning

    I like the food at L'Isola. But one thing I really don't like about it is how they take advantage of Americans by telling you that a tip is not included in the bill and asking how much you want...
