South of Rome

February 4, 2010

Some very good news to share: South of Rome is back and Karen was kind enough to feature our little blog yesterday. It's always funny to see how paths cross and mingle over the years. I had no idea when Karen and I met in Japan seven years ago that we would go on to "share" European adventures via blogging. I can't gush enough about how helpful Karen's book, In Etna's Shadow, has been for us as we settle into our new Sicilian lives. I haven't come across any other book that delves into the farmers markets, the food, the festivals, and the culture in such a satisfying way. And believe me, I am working my way through the Sicilian book collection at the library!

But I would also like to highlight what a great resource her blog is. If you are planning a trip to Italy, getting ready to move here, or just want to escape the winter doldrums with a virtual trip to Italy: visit South of Rome. Although, Karen is currently in the States she continues to have great advice, stories, and tempting photographs that will make you want to hop the next plane for Southern Italy.

Thank you, Karen!

Thanks Lucia! In between digging out of the snow I'm living vicariously through you and your St. Agatha's posts. I'm hoping to see you this summer. Keep all fingers crossed!
