I Long to Visit Italy

The Italian countryside.  I'd love to be riding along on the back roads, stopping at various villages along the way to sample wine.  Today's blog prompt- blog about somewhere you'ld like to visit and or move too.  We'd like to visit Italy, and have begun a wee bit of travel planning with that in mind.
Join us at Paula's for the June Blog Challenge.  Click the badge to join in.
We hope to see plenty of the things other tourists see, but....we also hope to see a side of Italy those who tour quickly don't get to see.  Our hope is to be there for 3 weeks or more and really explore.

Certainly seeing the historic sites is a must, as long as plenty of time if left for food and wine!  We want to do some on our own and some with a tour group.  We may plan this trip for after retirement, we may not wait.

We've been saving our Marriott Rewards Points for years to make this all happen.

In the meantime, we'll enjoy traveling about the U.S., please use the search this blog area to find locations your interested in.  In addition to enjoying the U.S., we've have made multiple trips to Aruba, a real favorite so check that out too.

Currently we're planning trips to Park City, Utah (were we've been a number of times, Aruba again in the fall, Hilton Head in January (awesome time to go to get out of the snow in Ohio), and Spain in the Spring.

Come back often, I'm sure there's something here for everyone.  Menu Monday was postponed this week in favor of this fun blog challenge.  Do come back next week, if not before.


Pop in Often, remember Menu Mondays for dining tips, Traveling Tips on Thursday, and any day for vacation destinations.

  1. Yeah, I'd love to visit Italy too.

  2. You must go to Italy. You must see everything all tourists want to see, Venice, Florence, Rome, Milan....and then you must tour the Tuscany region. I have been twice...and want to go once more without a tour guide and take a cooking class, stay in a villa in Tuscany....and just absorb all I can. I loved Italy.

  3. Thank you both, Liz and StillMagnolia for your vists. I maybe picking your brain StillMagnolia for places to visit and stay. I've always wanted to see Tuscany ever since that move came out. It looks beautiful.

  4. Italy is on my list of places to visit too. So lovely.

  5. Italy is lovely - I would love to visit again. Hope you'll be able to go there...soon!

  6. Thanks Christine and Rosanna for your visits. Rosanna when and where did you go. Did you go as part of tour or on your own?

  7. Me too!! We have friends there right now and I am so jealous! :-) Have bee there only once and it was an amazing wonderful trip!! Hope you have a great summer!

  8. P.S. And thanks for stopping by occasionally to see if I'm still around :-) It's been a hectic 6 months, but all is well!

  9. Everyone I've ever known who's traveled to Italy has come home raving over the beauty and the food. I set foot in the country once upon a time when on a tour, but that didn't give me enough time or enough to see to feel like I'd really been there. It's on the list of many places yet to see. xoA

  10. So nice to hear from you Ollie, glad to know you ok, hope things calm down for you.

    Thanks Annis for the visit, hope you make it back also!
