“If you want something you’ve never had, than you’ve got to do something you’ve never done.”
I have great news ~ I’m returning to bella Italia. If you have wondered where I’ve been, the answer is right here ~ packing. In fact, I will be leaving Portland airport this Saturday with my feet in Rome Sunday morning in time for mass, if I choose to. But this is not my typical trip to Italy. I have been invited to embark on a 10 day tour of discovery.
This Is Your Time Travel Blog Tour will be taking a group of bloggers, photographers and journalists throughout one of the most exotic and exciting parts of Italy. We will begin in the medieval hill town of Orvieto, which is built high on a shelf of volcanic rock called tufa, explore the natural beauty and activities of Lake Trasimeno, and then venture over to the Pontine islands of Ponza and Ventotene to take in turquoise waters edged by white beaches below dining terraces overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean. There is so much more on the itinerary, but I want to save some surprises for you.
While I am visiting some brand new locations, I will be posting photos and small updates on my website so be sure to tune in. I’m excited to bring them home to you. There is always so much more to see and experience. This is what I love so much about Italy. I hope you follow along. I promise excitement, beauty and places you will want to visit.
I’ve never embarked on a blog tour with others in search of some of the finest, richest and most exotic experiences that Italy has to offer. Everyone I encounter will be a stranger, but not for long. This time will be full of rich rewards for each of us as we travel, dine, and experience life together. Embracing the unknown, I’m ready to go.
