Italy Bound


I'm off for a few days to Italy, a short getaway trip with my boyfriend, to celebrate our birthdays. Mine is April 27 and his is April 29! We're heading to Piemonte, a lovely wine region, where the famous Barolo wine also comes from. Piemonte is also known for its truffle mushrooms, so I hope to eat a lot of homemade truffle pasta while I'm there! Hopefully we'll also get to do some wine tasting, I'm planning to buy some Barolo for sure.


We'll be staying at a charming, country inn that was recommended to us. It's called the Osteria Del Maiale Pezzato and is located in Sinio. We'll be taking some trips around the region and explore this lovely part of Italy. Hopefully the weather will remain pleasant!

I'm taking my filming camera with me so hopefully I'll remember to film as much as I can, and will upload that on my second Youtube channel. I'll "see" you all in a few days when I get back! Now to finish up my packing...Toodaloo :)
