Ciao Italia 2010!

My good friend and often travel companion Emily just dubbed 2010 my year of Eat, Pray, Love.  I was just in Illinois and Indianapolis for Labor Day weekend and now, it’s official: I’ll be back in Italy in just a couple of weeks! 

I’m excited to again visit the Amalfi Coast which I consider to be the most beautiful place on earth.  I’m going back to stay in some of my favorite small pensiones as well: Pensione Casa Guadagno in Positano, Relais Amore in Sorrento and La Piccola Maison in Rome.  I’ve updated the Italy page to include the details on these great places along with some pictures of the rooms from my previous stays.  I love staying in small, family run places when I’m travelling because they not only provide an authentic experience but it also feels like you’re contributing directly to the local economy and the people who show such amazing hospitality. 

One of the best things about eating in Italy is the fresh ingredients.  I can literally taste the fresh fish at Le Tre Sorrelle, the gnocchi at Da Vincenzo and the mussels at Mediterraneo.  Look forward to my upcoming posts with more recommendations and experiences from Italy 2010!
