San Marino Cittá – Second tower

“Rick Bailey sounds like an ideal travel companion. He’s endlessly curious, astute, and hilarious.”

In essays and memoir that capture ordinary and odd moments in daily life, Rick asks, “Where am I? How did I get here? What am I doing? Why does it matter?” He writes to remember life as a kid, a guy, a husband, father, and teacher.
