  1. Love your blog and am so glad to have found it! My husband and I will be in Italy in two weeks (celebrating our 25th anniversary!) and were planning on doing the Cinque Terra trails. I’m not sure of the proper name for it. After seeing the information on the flooding, I was wondering if the trails are open or if there are parts we should not attempt. Thanks!

    • I’m so glad you enjoy my blog, I certainly love writing it!
      Here is the direct link to the trail status in Cinque Terre. There are many many trails besides the standard ones connecting the town, all of them beautiful.
      Hope this helps!

  2. Great guest post, Andi, on Vernazza on Susan Van Allen’s blog! It is one of my favorite spots.

  3. I googled Italians and toilet paper and your blog came up, so perhaps you can shed some light. A friend here in suburbs of London runs a b&b, whenever she has Italians to stay they go through rolls and rolls of loo paper; far more than any other nationality. Last time she had to get drain clearing people in to sort her loo out.
    Do you have any ideas why?

  5. We visited Rome in 2004 and then went back in 2006 to Rome and Sicily and Pompeii and then were pulled back again in 2008 to cruise the Mediterranean. What is it about Italy? It’s more than the gelato and risotto, and people. The mix of climate, culture and conversation is so welcoming. Now planning a trip for 2014. So may places to travel, but visions of N. Italy are calling. Love your blog!

    Have you ever visited the agriturisimo, Il Fontanaro in Paciano? If not, you should because it is a little bit of Paradise in Umbria. It is owned by a mother, Lucia, and her daughter, Alina Pinelli. They adopt you as family as son as you enter the front gate. We are returning on September 28 & hopefully we will be there to participate in the grape harvest again. You will love this place!!

    Have you ever been to Abbruzzo? We have a home near Pescara , a small beach town on the Adriatic. My father was born and grew up there, my brother and I were born in the USA but have been going back all our lives. Just curious, it’s not in many tourist books, we are kind of happy about that. Truly off the beaten path. Amazing memories.
