We will be spending a 3-day weekend in Beaufort, South Carolina this weekend. We are so excited to explore this charming town to visit my boyfriend's mom and step-father in their new home. I can't wait to share pics and try some good Southern food!
Letters to Juliet is a must-see for anyone who loves travel romantic comedies, aspires to be a writer, loves gastronomie, or has a passion for Italy. There was beautiful scenery, a restaurant with fresh made pasta drying on the rack, love letters, Italian villas, and nice eye candy. The movie was far better than I expected, and my boyfriend even enjoyed it. It was me all in a wrap... and I know many ladies in blog land would surely love it.
On a similar note, I have been working on a few of my own writing goals lately and have even pitched my book to two agents in New York, so keep your fingers crossed.
As far as Italy goes, I've found quite a few websites with great international real estate. I found a charming little gem in Abruzzo that needs renovation for cheap! No I didn't buy it... but just letting my HGTV and travel lovers out there know there are some great deals for those who love that kind of project. I so wanted to share a pic... but it is right-click protected. Check it outHERE ($19,000)!
There are all kinds of international properties out there for all price brackets, including those who don't think they can afford it, one just needs to research thoroughly, bear in mind foreign taxes, renovation costs, and watch out for mold and water damage. Some websites for your perusal... Viviun,Holprop, & ToscanaHouses.
In January, I blogged about a tour of Morocco with Cosmos for $880. After I posted that blog, my friend Lynne, whom I met on my European Sampler tour last year, emailed me to say that she had just signed up for this tour of Morocco before seeing my blog. I considered it may be fate, that I should attend with her, and it is with much regret that each month quickly went by and I opted to put vacation on hold. Today is the day this tour begins, and I am so envious that I am not accompanying Lynne, but anticipate seeing her photos, and hope she drinks lot of mint tea for me.
She will be taking an excursion to witness a sunset on the Sahara desert!
