I’ll never forget the day of June 24th, 2016.   Nico and I were in a cute and spacious apartment in the picturesque town of Telč, nestled on the border of Monrovia and Bohemia in Czechia, just under a two hour drive from Prague.

Canyon Park in Tuscany: A Real Life Fear Factor

“Libero” shouts the Italian guy about 20 feet ahead of me. I can barely make out his figure,  but I can certainly hear his yell. I  could see  he had moved slightly off of the landing platform where I, a nothing delicate sort of tall Texan is meant to land after hurtling down a zip line India Jones style.   This was how last Saturday started..   It all really began at a picnic.
