Food, being the world capital of black and white truffles and Wine, producing world reknown Barolo right here. The Ceretto family in Alba is literally and seriously involved in all 3 area. Established wine growers for 70 years they also own their own upscale restaurants and have enlisted major world artists to decorate their building. This never consecrated psychedelic chapel was painted by Saul Lewitt in 1999. Their winery is in nearby Castiglione Falletto, an old medieval town. However true to their adventurous spirit they picked Turin architect De Abate to design their modern building with a glass cube for the tasting room. On these hils on 20 acres they produce 3 outstanding Barolos which have won the company many awards: Bricco Rocche, Prapo and Brunate. So for their Piazza Duomo restaurant they picked Enrico Crippa, an awarded chef who paints beautiful dishes in the kitchen and the artist Francesco Clemente who painted the walls. Of course their Barolo is always on the table. The Chef explains that the fresco it represents happiness, the vineyard, nature and freedom. He also remembers that Clemente was painting with natural colors, made with flowers and natural herbs so while painting the room always filled up with insects and bees which were following the scent as if they were in an open field instead of a room in the center of town. less

To French Polynesia, the fabled islands that caught the imagination and the heart of Melville, Paul Gauguin and now The Compulsive Traveler. Of course being pampered on the super-luxurious m/s Paul Gauguin opens the door to romance…. He follow s his heart to Oaxaca, Mexico where his New York friends Marissa and Emmanuel are to be married 3 ways: in a Zapotec, Miztec and Spanish ceremony. Talk about opening up exotic romantic possibilities. And the wedding guests get a taste of the ancient and fascinating Oaxaca culture. In order to find a date, he flies across the International Date Line all the way to exotic Fiji. Love must be somewhere in one of these 320 beautiful islands. And drinking plenty of kava with the locals makes all the girls look like stars. Grenada in the Caribbean is the spice island and the home of all the great aphrodisiacs from nutmeg to cinnamon to chocolate. So a stop there is a must to investigate among others the connection between girls and chocolate. Being dropped by helicopter on a glacier in the Canadian Rockies for a trek is not usually associated with romance. And yet the opportunity is always there as the story demonstrates.
