@Betterwayitaly

 

lisaHello, I am Lisa!  In August 2012, I sold my home, most all my possessions, hung up my aerobic shoes and headed for Italy!  I have lived for two years now in Florence. I co-own A Better Way to Italy, www.betterwaytoitaly.com, a tour company that brings groups of women to Tuscany.  I also am a featured contributor for the Huffington Post, where I write about Italy and all things travel and living here related!  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lisa-condie/

victoria

La dolce vita for me sums up Victoria’s passion and love for all things Italian. An American (with deep Italian roots) living in California, her heart is always in Italy.

As a travel consultant, blogger, and writer, Victoria loves sharing practical no-nonsense travel tips and insights as well as her own experiences from a personal and light-hearted point-of-view.
Victoria loves writing on her travel blog, www.PostcardsfromTravelPiZazz.com and invites you to join her there as well as on FacebookTwitterItalian TalksItalian Notebook, and Pinterest. She now offers two boutique tours to Italy and is editing her first e-book on travel planning.

@sbvet1

saraCiao a tutti! My name is Sara and I was born in Italy but I grew up/studied/worked in Africa, Latin America, USA and Europe. I am a veterinarian specialised in sustainable farming systems and rural development. Living abroad allowed me to experience other cultures, as well as participate in events and activities that promote Italian culture. I am a strong EU supporter and now possibly also an example of “reverse brain drain”, having recently completed a PhD in the UK and decided to move back to my beautiful Tuscany. I love travelling (who would have thought!?) and I run the blog Just Sara, where I mostly write about my travels and sometimes about environmental issues.

@KatieBe_NC

katieHello, I Am Italy! My name is Katie. I will be traveling from the United States to Italy for the first time in June.
We will visit Rome, Florence, Siena, and the Amalfi Coast. We will travel by train and car. So glad my husband is excited about driving, so that we can see and experience more! Being curator will be a great way to experience the country in a unique way, and also appeal to other travelers. I will tweet and post lots of photos.

I am 43, married, 2 children (who are not going with us). I studied medieval history in college so I’m very interested in Siena in particular. I really can’t wait. I love food and wine and history and the visual arts. In the US I work in healthcare for people without health insurance (a charity) so I am interested in people and healthcare and society. I have been on Twitter for 5 years or so.

@silvietta1986

Silvia I was born and raised on lake Como, I graduated as a doctor in veterinary medicine in Milan and I’ve worked as a veterinarian for pets for almost 2 years. In the meantime I met the guy who now is my husband, an American officer of the US army, while he was on holiday in Italy. So I left everything behind me and now I’m living in Texas. I moved here in November so I’m still studying for being certified as a vet here too and trying to handle this new life. I love travelling (it’s so expensive here in the US ouch!), riding horses, cuddling with my doggy and hiking with my hubby.

@paroladelgiorno

KeithCiao!  My name is Keith.  I studying for my Masters degree in international relations at St. John’s University in Rome.  I have been living in Italy for almost two years.  I have visited Rome more than a dozen times over the years as well as other places in Italy.  I am Italian-American so every trip to Italy is a way for me to get in touch with my roots and learn more about the culture and country that my family left all those years ago.  I also run a successful blog called “Parola del Giorno” with my friend, Giuseppe, where people learning Italian can improve their vocabulary and learn about Italian grammar.
