I'm not really a sneaker kind of gal, but I'm loving my new kicks from New Balance. So much so, that they might actually inspire me to go running!

Florence is a stunningly beautiful city, but it is also, during certain parts of the year, a Disney World for culturally-inclined American tourists.

For $20 you can ready, aim and fire 'til your heart is content in what looks like any middle-American Elk's Lodge. It's surprisingly easy to become a proficient novice archer and incredibly satisfying to land your first shots. Within 10 minutes, after a brief lesson from the friendly staff, I was acting out my Katniss Everdeen fantasies, even putting an arrow in bull's eye once or twice.
If you come on League Night, you'll see what a difference years of practice make- the pros shoot from high-tech bows of the future (think Blade Runner) and produce a tight cluster of arrows every time, at twice the distance the beginners start from.
