10 Things I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE About Italy (or 10 Reasons I don’t want to move back to the States…EVER!)
For more detailed explanations just listen!
1. FRESH FOOD
All I have to say is your body will love you for this! If the food isn’t fresh they will tell you!
2. EASE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Travel by plane, train, auto and/or bus! All for cheaper than traveling in the States.
3. RELAXED LIFE STYLE
Italians don’t rush through life like Americans…..They are relaxed, laid back and this definitely takes some getting use to but I love it! Sit back, relax and smell the roses.
4. AFFORDABLE TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES

Then the Sagras, Antique Markets, Artist Markets, Clothing Markets……………..man……….all my weekends are booked….and thats just what goes on locally.
6. SPECIALTY SHOPS
From butchers, bakeries and bread to wine, chocolate and cheese………..nom nom nom
For breakfast (or is that only me???), lunch and dinner!!!! Need I say more?

I hate tipping. Do your job! And that’s all I have to say about that.
