A good friend and I, living a half world apart, decided to meet in Rome and do a road trip together. She had spent time in Italy and wanted to show me all of her most cherished spots.
Unfortunately our trip was cut short due to unforeseen circumstances but she wanted to make sure she got me to her most cherished place in Italy, Borgo di Vagli. We came to Borgo to visit with the wonderful staff, whom had become dear friends of hers, and to experience all that is Borgo.
