** CONTEST HAS ENDED **
BOOK NOW AVAILABLE AT AMAZON!
This is my 1,000th published post on this blog–and I could not have planned this more perfectly. Here is the cover of my Calabria travel guide (designed by Melissa Muldoon of Melissa Design), soon to be released for Amazon Kindle:
This is the first in a series written by fellow Italy residents: Locals Know Italy Travel Guides. Current places in the works include:
- Amalfi Coast by Laura Thayer (Ciao Amalfi)
- Basilicata by Valerie Schneider (My Bella Basilicata)
- Piemonte by Diana Strinati Baur (Diana Baur Creations)
- Rome by Eleonora Baldwin (Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino)
- Umbria by Rebecca Winke (Brigolante)
These guides are specifically designed to be unconventional—starting with the authors. Unlike the vast majority of travel guides, Locals Know Italy books are written by people who live or have lived in the subject area and, most importantly, love it.
By digging deep into the character of the place and veering from the predictable, our authors strive to help you get to know our homes as we have. The guides are written in a conversational but informative style so it feels like you’re tagging along on our morning errands, but oh look, an archaeological dig—and do you know the story behind that oddly shaped window?
We want you to have as much fun reading our guides as we have writing them. We want these books to hold your interest even if you’re only armchair traveling. And most of all, we want these guides to inspire you to experience Italy in a way that helps you feel like a local for however much time you have here.
52 Things to See & Do in Calabria travel guide will be released soon, and if you’d like to receive notification of publication as well as have a chance to win one of FIVE copies I will give away to new subscribers, sign up here:
