Wine Harlots International Travel Virgins

by Nannette Eaton on December 8, 2010

“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers, that the mind can never break off from the journey.”  —  Pat Conroy


“What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do — especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.”  —  William Least Heat Moon

Wine Harlots are on our first international wine junket to Italy, visiting the Collio and Prosecco regions, which is our first time out of North America.  Yes, Wine Harlots are International Travel Virgins, heading out for great adventure.  We’ll report back with all of foibles and faux pas.  Coupling our natural klutziness, jet-lag and vino has got to yield a few Bacchus Debacles, and we’ll be sure to share our humiliation with the room – it’ll provide a few laughs and more than a few cautionary tales.  Wine Harlots will do our best to avoid an International Incident, we promise there will be no Midnight Express/Gotcha!/Brokedown Palace moments, but we gurantee a few head-shaking “oh no, you didn’t” scenarios.  You wouldn’t expect anything less of the Wine Harlots.

Flying out of San Diego’s Lindberg Airport (scene of last month’s traveler security screening rebellion) Wine Harlots welcomes the TSA to “touch our junk.”  Any fondling is fine, we’ll just pretend it’s foreplay.  We might start humming Mariah Carey’s “Touch My Body” during the screening, but that’s just our compensation mechanism.  Wine Harlots put the “junk” in junket.  For all you perverts out there, the Wine Harlots TSA screening x-rays will be available for viewing for a small fee.  A girl’s gotta make a living somehow in this economy.

Ciao bella!  Wine Harlots are off for a date with destiny.
