My dream Fuji X-series travel gadget bag | Tom Grill

My dream Fuji X-series travel gadget bag | Tom Grill | Travel | Scoop.it

 

Like many of you, I have been speculating on what my travel gadget bag would look like if I decided to take only a Fuji X-series with me. Makes sense to speculate as the Fuji X system continues to expand to a point where it can be as compete as many pro DSLR systems that have been around for a long time. Nice thing about the Fuji X is how small it is in comparison. By the end of this year the super-wide angle zoom should be available along with the 23mm f/1.4 and a Zeiss macro so we will have a lot of equipment options available to us. Up until now, I have often taken a Fuji X-Pro1 along with me on trips, but only as a backup camera to a complete Nikon system. I would use the Fuji on those occasions where I wanted to walk around casually and not be encumbered with too much stuff.  A few of my friends along with many readers of this blog have mentioned looking forward to travelling with just a light weight Fuji system instead of a heavy DSLR. That is what started me thinking about what such a system would look like for me.....

Why travel to Italy in the Autumn?

Why travel to Italy in the Autumn? | Travel | Scoop.it

BE INSPIRED!
1. Harvest Season
Be surrounded with the scent of fresh harvest. All our walking holidays will feature festivals or markets during the season of abundant fresh foods. Embrace the slow food movement with local delicacies. Celebrations with perfect wine pairings abound. What could be better?
2. Cooler Temperatures
The summer months are hot and while that may be ideal for basking in the sun along the coast line, walking holidays are better enjoyed in the cooler months. Temperatures will be comfortable, in the low 70s Fahrenheit.
3. Fewer People.
Though many people still flock to Italy in the autumn, most towns are less crowded than in the high season of the summer months. This translates into less wait time in restaurants, less wait time to get into museums, and a getting a feel of real life in Italy.
4. Excellent Gastronomy
Fall is harvest time in Italy. Local produce abounds. My favourites include wild chestnuts, zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta and of course, the elusive white truffle! Try some of the many varieties of olives soaking in the perfect brine. Restaurants prepare special menus to celebrate the harvest and use the freshest produce.
5. Wine Harvest
The Tuscan countryside is famed for its exceptional wine, and towns like Montalcino, Monetpulciano, Chianti, and Greve for example, come alive with colourful festivals, lively feasts and celebrations that date back to the enigmatic Etruscans.
