1 Ciao from California on 17th April 2010, 9:00 am

Ciao ladies

I live in California but was in Rome for a week last December, and am going to northern Italy with my husband for a month in just 10 days from now (IF that dang volcano quiets down!)

We've spent a year of Italian lessons, Meet-up groups, and chatting with Italians on Facebook. We've met hundreds with our last name, and prior to this my husband thought he was the last one!

Now, we'll be visiting at least 6 different towns/villages, and dozens of families, some of whom have invited us to stay at their homes! even invited to a wedding May 1st! And none are relatives! It's been a wonderful experience already; we are looking forward to seeing Italy through the eyes of Italians this time.

We are already thinking of a 3 month long trip for next year. Then what? 6 months????

I'm loving all the blogs on Italy!

Nice to "meet" you all! Very Happy

If Milan airport stays closed, where further south might you all recommend? Hopefully Rome will be open. It's going to be an interesting week!

I'm back on Pink Italy after trying to use a bad password for a long time! Crying or Very sad

We had a WONDERFUL, I mean meraviglioso! time in Italy last May. We were treated so nicely, fed well, and driven around to places we would never have known existed. (Although we did get 17 days of rain!)

My husband and I continue with Italian lessons (me, very slowly!) and are starting to plan a return trip this Fall.

We also continue with spending a lot of time with new friends here in San Diego who love everything Italian through meet-up groups, hosting dinners, Italian movie nights, parties, and attending local "Little Italy" events.

We are not sure exactly where we'll go on this next trip to Italy, but maybe we'll get to meet some of you! It is so much more fun to hang out with locals than to do the "tourist thing".

Here's the Simioni del Mondo blog I started:
