When the day is over and you just want to get some rest then quality accommodation is essential. This year we found the …

Google apps in Tuscany, Travel tech road test

Guest post by Alison Bailey As a complete technophobe with a smartphone (trust me, I can dumb it down) it was with a little trepidation but an open mind that I found myself heading off for harvest time in the glorious hills of Tuscany.
