Now that I have retired, I really have the travel "bug". There are many places around the world that I have enjoyed and have been lucky enough to return to. One destination that I would like to return to is Italy. I went to school there one summer many years ago and have always dreamed about going back. We would like to visit all the "must-sees", but would like to add some local flavor to the trip. We would also like to watch the Giro, a bicycle race. My husband is also looking forward to the food!
We just had homemade pizza for dinner and I was thinking how different it was than my first pizza in Italy. It had green peas and artichokes on it. I also remember a restaurant that served canneloni that was so good we ate there several times a week. I also remember being served chicken necks and eggs for breakfast one morning. I haven't thought about that in a long time.
