A VBT Travelers Experience

Italy bicycle tour

Recently one of our travelers, Beverly Phillips, wrote an article about her experience on our Italy: Po River Valley and Lake Garda Bicycling Vacation. In October of 2010 Beverly was able to finally fulfill her life long dream of revisiting the country where she spent part of her childhood.  For her it wasn’t only about taking in the beautiful scenery, but it was about discovering or rediscovering the Italian way of life or “la dolce vita” — the sweet life.  To read more about Beverly’s experience and how she reconnected with the Italy of her childhood click on the following link.

In the kitchen with Nonna

Food lover and professional chef Kathy has had a passion for food and culture ever since she stepped into her mother’s Italian American kitchen. Some of her earliest memories in the kitchen involve watching her grandmother or nonna teach her mother traditional Italian recipes.

Recently Kathy experienced a pasta making lesson with our own nonna.Nonna Vata is the grandmother of one of our local Italian Trip Leader’s and teaches a pasta making lesson on our Puglia vacation!  Check out Kathy’s experience on how she learned the art of making pasta with Nonna Vata. http://foodloversodyssey.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/04/pugliese-pasta-art-of-making-pasta-by-hand-with-italian-nonna.html
