I am entering this contest sponsored by a Grottole non-profit and Air BnB to have a three-month summer sabbatical in Grottole, Lucania, southern Italy.
Last year when a friend sent me a link to the New York Times' search for its first 52 Places travel writer, I had no interest. I don't like rushing from place to place (and the logistics of visas and plane tickets must have been a nightmare for the woman who got the job!).
But three months in a stone mountain town in southern Italy... YOU BET! I was born for this. It's a volunteer job but all expenses paid. Click on the caption to go to the website. Wish me luck.
