Italy here we come!


Italy here we come!  Paul and I will be speaking at the International Wine Tourism Conference in Perugia. We cannot wait! This conference is one of our favorites. 2012 marks the 4th Annual International Conference & Workshop and it will be held in the city of Perugia in the rustic central Italian region of Umbria.
“Perugia is a stunning city and is one of Italy’s best preserved medieval hill towns. Delegates will be charmed by the Centro Storico and the many medieval streets covered with brick ceilings on the way up to the Piazza Italia and Conference venue.

The conference and workshop will bring together wine and travel lovers and professionals from around the world…It involves a three-day programme of over 40 talks, presentations, panel discussions and workshops It also gives delegates a chance to taste wines from around the world and to meet leading wine and travel figures and writers and exchange ideas with fellow professionals from all sectors of wine and culinary travel.”
If you have never been, I highly recommend it. If you want a last minute place to go, there may still be room at this Umbiran conference.

Every new year we take the time to list our blessings from the previous year. It gives us pause to reflect on all of the positives. Sometimes we stall on the problems and negatives of life and miss the positives. If you have never made such a list, try it.

Happy New Year!
