    Food adventures in Ponza: The Best Seafood I’ve Ever Had.

    September 3, 2014


    There was a time when I could have been labeled the most picky eater alive. Anything with a weird texture, look, smell, or even name I wouldn’t go near.

Whatever it was atop that hill across from our villa on Isola di Ponza — that crumbling structure barely clinging to whatever historical moment in time it came from — it was a magical sight. Something out of one of my fantasies. I always dreamed of exploring ruins and castles as a young boy, but I had never thought I’d bee sleeping across from them.

    Everybody needs a little kick in the mojo sometimes. A jolt of energy to get life shocked back into.

Hell, sometimes you just need someone to slap you and shout, “Get off your ass and chase your dreams fool!”

    Long golden grass dancing on a gentle wind, bright yellow and purple wild-flowers peeking out of the hills, dark green-brushed mountains in the distance climbing out of the horizon and surrounding the turquoise lake shimmering under the summer sun.
