Ten tips to make summer travel easier

Ten stray thoughts about the upcoming summer travel season:

1.

The most delightful new travel product is Italy's recently announced "Home Food" network, a system for publicizing the meals served in private homes by talented amateur cooks. You learn about their willingness to feed you from a website called HomeFood.it (www.homefood.it), listing scores of towns and villages whose home chefs charge 3 euros for registration and then 35 euros (around $45) for a several-course meal (with local wine) prepared by, say, a grandmother, from recipes more than a hundred years old. What a fine alternative to standard evening activities.
