Hi, It’s Lisa again. Following on from my post about using a car to get around in Italy, and the difficulties presented using this form of transport, I’d like to go on to using the rail network.
Hi… It’s Lisa here, doing my first blog post which I hope you will find informative. Getting around Italy can be easy or very stressful! I’m going to cover the various modes of transportation in Italy which I hope will enable tourists and people looking […]
It’s not often that the death of a celebrity affects me. However, the death of former chef Anthony Bourdain hit me like a steam train. It felt like somehow I had lost a friend. This was a man who encouraged me to travel and “eat the world.” He was also very funny while telling you about it.

I got a nice surprise the other day when I received a message to say that my little blog had been nominated by Khloe of Simply Khloe for the Leibster Blog Award! The Liebster Blog Award is great way to get to know other bloggers that you follow, and also a way to get to know newer bloggers!
