Travel Blogger Friday 28

Travel Blogger Friday 28

One of the great things about my travels so far is the new friends I’ve made. From all around Europe I made new friends, some for just a few days others hopefully for a lifetime. So as I was trying to decide about where to end my travels a certain reader of my blog convinced me to change my plans and head for Italy where they were living. Given I knew the weather was going to be perfect how could I say no to a bit of sun and lots of gelato.

Landing in Florence I met Annie who has now launched her own blog Getting to hang out with Annie and her boyfriend (Lorenzo) for a few days really made my stay in Florence much more fun, but you can read all about that in a blog post coming soon.

Since then Annie has been off on her own adventures, exploring Spain and Portugal which I must say just cemented the fact I want to travel there next summer *crossing fingers* so if you’re in the area next year I could be landing on your door step, beer in hand.

As well as travelling around Europe she also started a series of posts about Living with an Italian which you have to read. While your there be sure to check out what else she has been up too, you might get a travel idea for yourself.

    Annie’s super! Her posts are helping Italy climb on my “places to see list” as it had (and still has) so many before it…but every day it’s climbing. Hope to meet her (and you) in the next couple of years!

      Yeah Annie’s champ. Well your interest in Italy will climb even more once I get around to writing about it 🙂 Oh and don’t you worry we’ll be meeting up even if I have to come find you in America.

    Love the idea. Might do a similar thing next week sometime to plug a few gems.

      Thank’s Chris. I started this series long ago but when I began travelling I had less time to read blogs. Now I’m settled in London I’ve brought it back to highlight blogs I love and new ones starting out.
