The topic of multiples reminded me of the last time I was in Italy. I took lots of pictures of one of my favorite subjects – chocolate! Not surprisingly I had many pictures to choose from. And since I’m reasonably sure pictures of chocolate don’t have any calories, here they are.
Just when you thought you’d bought enough souvenirs from a trip to Italy, there’s one more opportunity at the airport shops. Here are all the designers you somehow missed in Florence or Milan, as well as duty-free shops for things like candy or perfume. And since you’ve checked your luggage, why not get a few more keepsakes to carry on the plane? What’s surprising is that I couldn’t find anywhere to buy one last gelato (and I really looked).
I discovered this market while I was in Philadelphia last month. It was around noon and I was getting hungry, so I walked through the Reading Terminal Market searching for a place to eat lunch. Let’s just say there was lots of food here!

Chocolate is something that many people enjoy receiving as a gift. However, I’ve found that chocolate rarely makes it back to the people who might have liked it. This is because I can’t stop thinking about the delicious chocolate bars sitting in my suitcase, and I really can’t resist them. It’s almost a relief when I’ve eaten them. Then I can think about something else to take back as a gift.
