My first trip to Italy in 2013 changed my life. This trip made me realize that there is more to life than work, the rat race, working out and consuming. The Italians really know how to relax and enjoy the finer things in life such as quality food, beautiful wines and art and architecture. A trip to Italy has always been #1 on my bucket list. I’ll never forget how my husband broke the news that we would be heading to Italy for our ninth wedding anniversary. He took me to one of our favourite Italian restaurants and before we started on a couple glasses of fine red wine, he presented me with a small present. When I opened it, it was a tour guide of Rome. I cried. He’s the best – a true romantic…and great at surprises!
Now, I like writing my little travel guides offering suggestions for restaurants, sightseeing and shopping, but I think I will dedicate this post to simply sharing my favourite moments of our first trip to Italy.
I hope you enjoy and if you haven’t been to this beautiful country yet, I highly suggest you book your plane ticket NOW.
