Many of you know that my sister-in-law owns and manages a company called A Slice of Tuscany, which books trips and tours all around Italy. Sally (my sister-in-law) moved over to Florence, Italy 8 years ago this upcoming August and I still have never been! I know, I know. But, a couple years ago she meet her her future (an American with an Italian name) husband over there and because he is in the military he was soon transferred back to the United States. Although they were transferred back, Sally still takes trips to Italy throughout the year to help clients experience their dream vacations.
So Sally started this business while she was over there by basically just traveling around Italy eating, drinking, and talking to everyone. After years of research she quickly made friends with some of the top chefs, wine makers, shop owners in the country. Do you want to rent a villa in the countryside, make wine at a local vineyard, learn to cook for a top rated chef, rent a Ferrari? She can do that. What I’m saying is, if you want to do Italy right, you call Sally at A Slice of Tuscany.
That brings me to my bucket list. I AM going to Italy. I don’t know when but it’s happening. I believe the plan is to wait until her husband can take time off and we can have at least 2 weeks to travel the country. Hopefully, next Spring 2019 we will be sitting on the Amalfi Coast with a nice glass of Italian wine and fresh seafood. Now I want a glass of wine!
There are so many places I want to see before I die but I have to get to Italy as soon as possible. Sally happens to been over there now and every time she posts on Instagram I am amazed! It truly looks like the most beautiful place on earth!
Honestly, it after 10pm on a school night and I’m contemplating open a bottle of Chianti Classico.
