And I Ott director at Whitman in California without families you know being away from our camp for those twelve weeks but you know the bullet or willing to us. In the boat people placed under. Well you know I. You don't know this but in my prior lives as an air force Fata problem has been exhibited time and heavy on the airport. Service. And so most of my travels in Italy were in. Or northern Italy in the but he and I can't believe I never got into Tuscany is close as it was and I wanna go back my Brothers being in teases me about going back and that when I got. That press release from this when. Korea sent me your information I got excited that I went to your website and got really excited so. How can you not. Mean and so it. Also about how it works how folks can get involved if they want. Book a trip putting 9022 morning. Well it's quite easy go to our web site in China. We are sold out for this year yet to spot opened up just recently seeking go to the NC when their guard amber but direct the year we are. But it is just a wonderful wonderful trip if we could get a warning what are known us. And then we eat what we created in the morning and paired with winds of that region for lunch and we have a beautiful cuts that takes without him tour. All of our part that kept it lead he traveled 2 PM that amount that you or Deanna. We tore our silicon mountain political. Which is known for the enormously. Complying and have been on those. That light you would expect Serbia to Cheney's that you're gonna taste later attacks that they carry Nightline and you're talking about there. And we're right in the heart of the entity and right of the border county and just right in the middle. It has been much you know to bring Allen says the winds of our region just fantastic as well. Oh and did you guys have. Obviously had interest in and food you wouldn't of done this. One enthusiast. On both both parts. Yet I added people. You feel perfect trifecta. How much of these of the actual. Oh. Analysts say this and that travel planning you do view. Are you guys kind of part time travel agents to get people there'd you do work help with booking airfare and transportation. No we just once you get to that everything is taking care at the once you get to it was a month long ago. Which has no tourist by the way isn't about the drinking the weird numbers and experience right into our military. The restaurant sewers and receptor friend. And they they become our guests and as well so and people come back year after year though and try other areas there. We don't want to get to that we can hear everything fully all inclusive vacation. Where would one fly into it if we were coming to visit. Well I can't come from all over the world that would depend on what airport is best for you unfinished state it generally Rome. Too little farther from last. I'm then we're closer to warrant. We find that most cats from you that buying into round and then take it that the train or packet. Car or a hired car until our ability to about two hours to play. What are your toss a little about the village because you know I have seen and been in some of the best food ever ever eaten has been a little small part of Korea. We've you know and when I was there and sitting alert I would have six days off in a row. And I would go walk about and I would it must sometimes I'd take calling it a driver again go to Europe and out of the way built in the village could drop off. And just go cruising around and if it was on the weekend go to a market. Go to a restaurant and some of the best food. You mentioned something about restaurants in the village and how. Some of those chefs in addition to the known as the grandmas who who do some of the cooking instruction are their restaurants there in the village. Cherry you know what you described is basically what we planned. And we've done it for you that we sort doubts about that that's possible places to go. At that price it guide online though. These there's two restaurant and our little village and we do we frequent. They're just lovely we have the book and a and treaty should Gobi Richards is actually very well known international people know them and them to vote on a coat just to go to those restaurants. But I can't. Ticket question about that site are there are wrapped. Up 500 people live in the village so it's very tiny and typically it's like out to restaurants. That are very well claim in this tiny village is kind of the coup there's really nothing else in this village that would attracted tourists we have one ceramic shop. Run by a local woman other than that they are there aren't going to be near shops that are notorious. There's you know an 8 PM arm in the market can very tiny village which is what makes it the most appealing of policy. Echoing earlier point you truly are immersed in earmarks. People in their friend or one bar one are part of your coffee or your carry people running after an outfit. Home in I can just imagine. I would expect it those who work. In the village or from the village are in agribusiness. And producing some magnificent things to Colquitt. Get out of currently there are. Got a credit in there is is internationally known for has been on. And Victorian and he and Rico in his 800 Euro dollar and apple is. They know delayed airport is in no plea and his award winning in on talent just to truly special expecting. You know I can do it but I consider one of you do it. Kind of explain what vin Santo is because I know a lot of my listeners probably are not familiar with the dilution one. Well I think until the very special wine they call it it's basically didn't until like holding wine like opulent and they. And in hasn't you know wine and dammit it very highly revered. Date back. You know pre pre Roman you know that in its count as one of the earliest line and our wine maker between innings and he. Age is again internationally acclaimed for his stand on at least. Quite loudly protested in front of deputy taste with and from the ninety's you know 1990 four's that were quite lucky to be able to spend time and.

And the best part about it is even if you can't drink. You can just barrier knows the glass. And snort the aromas and have great pleasure and a. Yeah. Let's talk about it and looking at the bit cost in the schedule and you guys have a lot of options if I happen to be touring in that area I could prearranged maybe a single day class but really. The weeklong experiences probably I would imagine the most popular. It is quite yet are we really only do this to date clap for groups or friends. That time because that Immersion experiences is really what it's all about and I think. If you go to our trip but I there. It's chilly night because. Very descriptive of art get past experiences.
