You might have heard about a little blogging contest called Blogging from the Boot, being hosted by yours truly and Tina Ferrari of Tina Tangos. The contest is in full swing, finalists have been selected and voting is now open for the Best Italy Expat Blogging from 2009. (So please go vote!)
During the process of reading submissions and chasing down finalists, I stumbled upon some top-notch travel writing, written by some of my fellow expat in Italy bloggers. I’ve pulled some of my favorites together here for you today.
- Danielle of When In Rome Tours tells her story-and the thought process behind the decision-to take 17 of her closest friends and family with her on her Big, Fat, Italian honeymoon and offers a spotlight on Emilia Romagna’s fast cars and slow food.
- Linda of Milanese Masala writes about learning to love nature in a peaceful Tuscan agriturismo while watching a not-so entertaining game of cat and mouse.
- Francesca of Burnt by the Tuscan Sun writes about how much Rome has-or hasn’t-changed in the last 2,000 years, offers travelers tips on tipping and even gets into a little Italian potty humor with her post, A Royal Flush.
While these post highlight great Italy expat travel blogging from 2009, I know I’ve missed some fantastic writing. What were some of your favorite Italy travel posts from 2009? Feel free to leave them in the comments!
I wonder what Robin would say about it … let’s hop on over and see what travel tips she is offering up today.
Until next time … Buon Viaggio!
