I opened the window of my room in our 17th century Tuscan villa and let the cool spring morning air drift in. The sun was shining over the pastoral countryside and I couldn’t help but think how different the view was from my own window more than 4,500 miles away. We were staying in a small farm village outside of Vicchio and century-old buildings dotted the rolling hills in the distance. The excitement was building as we were about to begin our journey.
