FT Weekend Gems
The Financial Times’ Weekend section contained two travel articles that particularly snagged our attention.
Our favorite piece: Dan Hofstadter’s ode to Ferrara. We’ve been fans of Emilia-Romagna ever since we ate our way through the region’s exquisite restaurants one autumn not long ago. Hofstadter’s description of misty cobbled streets engulfed by cyclists served as an enticing reminder of the region.
Over a page, Claire Wrathall’s love letter to the Suffolk town of Aldeburgh (see above) also intrigued us, perhaps even enough to prompt us to visit the quiet seaside dorf as a sidetrip.
And, as always, Simon Kuper’s Sporting Life column delivered the goods. This past weekend, Kuper wrote about larger-than-life Surinamese-Dutch soccer player Clarence Seedorf.
