Writing in a Foreign Land

I love writing when I'm in Italy, a place dear to my heart. But the sights, fragrances, language change, at times challenging navigation all seem to add to my stories. It is so different than using Google to do the research. I take pictures while I am there so once home I have instant memories that keep me in Italian mood.

I would love to hear your stories of writing in spots that aren't in your familiar territory. They don't have to be tales of heading to Europe or elsewhere, but what happens to your writing when you are out of your environmental comfort zone?
