Try to be like MV Agusta’s R&D Director Brian Gillen when you grow up, who we reached during Italy’s August vacation: We’re vacationing at the beach, but in Greece rather than Italy, on the island of Paros: A bit of boating, taking in the epic history and eating amazing foods and wine!
PS: I’m sitting on the boat drinking Greek beer while the family is having a swim, I can’t be held accountable for any errors in this email!
