The Quirks of Travel

One of travel’s joys is a delight in trivia, those bizarre local myths or footnotes of history gathered along the way.

I’ve just returned from Italy and came back with a couple of great finds. I now have a photo of the smallest window in the world (in the city of Siena) and a certificate ‘proving’ I am insane because I walked around a fountain three times in a town called Gubbio. These tiny delights are as welcome as anything Boticelli put his brush to.
