Touring the OTHER New York, the Finger Lakes Region populated with wineries, cideries, meaderies, and breweries.

It began as any other day with a big yawn, stretch, and a morning cup of coffee. Then came the fateful challenge, “Good Morning Kietie, your mission, if you decide to accept it; take a wine tasting tour around a lake of your choice. Should you accept this mission, you will complete the task assigned in one day or forever be known as the wine connoisseur who couldn’t. Good Luck!”

It was all fun and games in the beginning. But by late afternoon, feeling sleepy in the back seat of the car, I repeated The Little Engine that Could, “I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. I know I can”, which had its own soothing rhythm. Soon I was the Bobblehead that couldn’t, but it was fun trying!
