    Great book Victoria! A wealth of useful information to be sure. Much of it will be joining me on my first trip in a few months.

    • Grazie Rae! That makes me soooo happy! Not only that you’re going on your first trip to Italy soon but that you’re “taking me with you”! That is the purpose of the book – to inspire and provide “useful information” so that your trip will be fantastic! Can’t wait to hear all about it- and I’m guessing, after this trip, you’ll be ready to go back in 2016!

        Go back? You are assuming I will return home – LOL

        But yes, most definitely already thinking about next year and all the places I want to see!!

      • Oh, I know you won’t want to…but half the fun is planning your next trip when you get back! I’ll look forward to hearing about your first trip and ideas for next year — I might even have a few suggestions ;D.

    Grazie Victoria. I’m following your Blog and links that you have, and bookmarking things along the way. Trip is just 2 months away…….SO excited!! Can’t wait for LaDolce Vita :-)

    • Cara Rae,
      That’s wonderful, thank you for “following along” -I love helping others enjoy Italy! Where will you be going this first time? Rome? Florence? Venice? I’ll be back in about 2 months, too, with 2 groups (Umbria, then Puglia). Fall is a fantastic time to visit Italy!
      Ah, yes, la dolce vita indeed! 😀

    Buongiorno –
    As a first time traveler to Italy, I appreciate all the help I can get :-)
    My dream of going to Venice started 42 years ago – after watching the movie ‘Summertime’ of course 😉 Visions of throwing open the window, and gazing out over a canal, getting lost in the winding calle’s have been dancing in my head for quite some time now. And if there is an Italian man in that picture – tanto meglio – LOL

    Over the years I have become more and more interested in Italy, and it has been at the top of my bucket list for a long time. Since I started planning this trip a year ago, well, I’ve become obsessed with Italy. I feel an inexplicable connection that is getting stronger all the time, I get overcome with emotion when reading about it, and especially, if watching any special I can get my hands on.

    The trip has been expanded to include Rome (4 days), Florence (3 days) and finally, Venice for 6 days. I was able to persuade 2 friends to join me, which is why the trip was expanded. We are renting apartments in each city.

    Lucky you returning to Umbria and Puglia! I read about your trip last month on Margie’s Blog – looked and sounded like you all had an awesome time!! Have fun on your next trip too
    Rae

    • Sounds perfect, Rae! And I understand the obsession very well! ;D
      I’m guessing/hoping you’ve also had a moment to check out my travels in all of those cities – highly recommend some walking tours (especially Rome which can be daunting).
      And, by the way, on my Book “ReviewZ” page I have a gallery of photos from people who have read and/or reviewed my book – I would LOVE your selfie holding the book?? You can send it to: PostcardsfromVictoria(at)gmail(dot)com.

        Let’s try again.. I was writing a reply, and before I could finish, it just vanished :-( Probably b/c my responses are too long!

        There is just so much info on line, but yes, I have been reading about your travels. Despite having bought your book last Fall, I am rather new to the whole Blog thing. I have been playing catch up. Since this all started, I’d book marked SO many websites, but so many of them are too generic and overwhelming.I like this format a lot more now that I’ve found a folks like you :-)
        Hmmm… a picture huh? Hmmmm, I will work on that (I don’t tend to like photos of myself) I will do something….

    • PS LOVE “Summertime”, too! Have you seen “Bread & Tulips” – Italian with subtitles – you’ll love it! 😀

    Hi Victoria, great to find another Italy lover here! I am a Dutch expat, living south of Milan since 2008. The Oltrepo Pavese wine region, ever heard of it? I am about to publish the English translation of my book with funny stories about my life in Italy. Would you be interested in a prelaunch e-version? A sneak preview is available at http://italiaanse-toestanden.duepadroni.it/index-UK.html
    Ciao, a presto,
    Stef

I'd Love to Hear From You!
