  18. Ciao Maple and Saffron
    I am glad to hear that you return to Italy quite often. Living here in Tuscany is a complete joy and so inspirational for writers, artists & musicians.

    1. Ciao June, very nice to meet you! 🙂 Yes, we planned it for now, we organize tours in hidden Italy and we hope many people will like to come! 🙂 You’re so right, Italy is a special place to get inspiration! No doubts art and music started there! Hope to hear from you often! Alessia

      1. If you want any interesting snippits from my part of Tuscany, let me know. I will be writing a third novel when I have completed the ‘The Bolivian Connection’, and it will be based in Tuscany. I have interviewed a lovely 87 year old Partisan as the book will include the World War II in this area. Do buy my current novel on Amazon and if you like it, tell your English speaking friends. Many Thanks, June x

      2. Thank June! We’ll surely spread the news! 🙂 It would be great to explore less known places of Tuscany…maybe you could show us some of them! 🙂 Hope you’ll spread the news about our tours among your friends too! Thank you for writing! Alessia

  19. Thank you for visiting my blog 🙂 Reading about your gastronomic adventures made me hungry, haha 😀 Great blog! I recently visited Italy, that was an awesome experience.

      1. We went to Rome for a couple of days with my fiance. I was surprised how much there is to see. We decided that we will go there again some day.

      2. You have to! Not even a month is enough to visit Rome! 😉 If you have time, you could add Abruzzo, our region…it’s just two hours from Rome and I promise you’ll be amazed! It’s enchanting 🙂 Btw, nice to meet you! 🙂 Alessia

      3. Nice to meet you too 🙂 Abruzzo sounds nice, I would love to see it.
        Ruta

      4. Thank you. I will look through it. I enjoy to get to know new places 🙂

      5. Thank you for wanting to read about it 🙂 I read you love coffee…you definitely have to come try the different Italian coffees…we have so many versions!

      6. Yes, that was one of my goals to try out good Italian coffee, when I was there, but running around and trying to see as much as possible in two days made it impossible 😀 So that is one of the reasons why I should go back to Italy again 🙂

      7. If you come during the summer, let me know…we can offer you a good glass of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 🙂

      8. That is very nice of you 🙂 Thank you! I appreciate it.

  20. Buona fortuna a te. Grazie e’ voi per aver visitato il mio blog. 😀 Scusate il mio italiano è un po ‘rusty’. LOL

    Cincin,
    Mona

  21. Ciao, grazie per avere visitato il mio blog, ho letto che anche voi “pazzi”, come me e mia moglie, avete deciso di lasciare l’Italia e incominciare una nuova avventura… cinque anni fa siamo capitati per caso in Irlanda e ci siamo rimasti…. seguiró il vostro interessante blog. ciao! Daniele

    1. Grazie a TE per aver visitato il nostro! 🙂 Pare che siamo diventati “pazzi” in molti in quest’ultimo periodo! Saremo felici di leggere le vostre avventure…magari scambiandoci anche consigli ed opinioni 🙂 Nice to meet you! 🙂 Alessia

  22. Thanks for stopping by my blog–I have now been to Italy 3 times in the last year. I told my husband we have to try visiting one of the other 199 countries in the world–but we can’t help it–we love Italy. Next trip–Abruzzo.

    1. Thank YOU for stopping by Claire! Very nice to meet you 🙂 Happy to hear you liked Abruzzo from our posts! If you’re really interested, we’re organizing tours and itineraries to Abruzzo for this summer: a lot of food, wine tastings, medieval celebrations, ancient little towns…and hiking too! Keep following us, we’re putting them online in a couple of days 🙂
      Ps: I understand you perfectly… how can you help visiting Italy? There’s so much to see and do 🙂

  23. Ah, Food and Travel, two very big loves of mine too! Your story is fascinating, and I love your profile picture also. Thanks for liking and commenting on my blog. Cheers! xo

    1. Thank you very much! Hope we’ll keep in touch and share our food and travel experiences! 🙂 Alessia

  24. Ciao! I love the picture of both of you. How can you leave Abruzzo for Canada?! Am I being closed here – sure, I guess the wealth of cultures in Canada must be amazing. Grazie mille for liking my blog – I can’t wait to have some of my Nonna’s pesto and foccacia 😉

    1. Thank you! Haha that’s a good question! 😀 We wanted to start a new life in a place that believes in young people…and I also wanted to know the other side of my culture a little better 🙂 But yes, we definitely miss our region…we’re going back quite often though, we planned to! 🙂 Maybe we’ll share a glass of wine if you happen to come to Abruzzo! 🙂 Very nice to meet you! Alessia
