Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

My sincere best wishes to each and every one of you for a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season. And my thanks for your continuing support of this Journey we have been on for almost one and one-half years. There has certainly been a lot of fun along the way, and also some challenges. But that's life, isn't it?

As of March 1, I will be moving to Italy for the foreseeable future. There are a variety of reasons for this move, and I will spare you the details. Foremost, is my love for everything about this country, and in particular, one specific area. And that would be Lerici, a Roman fishing village located right below the Cinque Terre, in the Northwest corner of Italy, right on the Mediterranean Sea.

I first visited Lerici in 1996 when Chris and I were filming Pop&Me, and I vowed to return. I lived there all of 2001, on a Contessa's estate. The Contessa remains a good friend, and is one of the reasons I am moving back. She is one of the most interesting people I have ever had the good fortune to meet. The Contessa has introduced me to many of her friends, and I very much enjoy being in their company.

In fact, I will be living in a 4 level residence right above Lerici, in a Roman hilltop village called Trebiano. Through the Contessa, I met a lovely English lady who is an artist and interior designer, and she was kind enough to allow me to rent her residence on a year round basis. The property is on 4 levels, with a sweeping view of the famous Cararra mountains, the Magra River, and the Mediterranean Sea. I have also rented another wonderful property in Lerici, directly on the sea. I will make this house available for friends and family, and will also use for people who come to Lerici for the many amazing tours based from this location that I plan to offer. Details are below.

As readers of the Newsletters know, I recently returned from a seven week trip to Italy. Four of those weeks I, and Umberto, led a total of thirteen group members on a trip which included Rome, Florence, Siena, Lerici, Portofino, Lucca, Orvieto, Chianti country in the heart of Tuscany, Portifino, Positano, the Isle of Capri, and numerous wonderful places and sights in Sicily.

I have decided to resume these Tours in 2007. Also, from mid-April to mid-September, I will conduct tours based out of Lerici. If you would like information about these Tours, please click here.

You can also see a short video of Lerici and the house on the sea, by clicking on the link above, or by visiting and clicking on...... Richard's Blog.

After you have read "La Dolce Vita" (either from the link above or on Richard's Blog on the website), if you are seriously interested in possibly being on one of the tours or visits to Lerici, please e-mail me at

Ciao for now,
