Traveling has been a serious passion since I was 18 when I went to Hawaii for a vacation and stayed 11 years. In my time living in Hawaii, I visited and stayed on most of the Hawaiian Islands. I also traveled to Canada and traveled across the mainland USA for a few months. I have visited Fuji, Tahiti, and New Zealand. After 11 years in Hawaii I returned to Australia and settled down. I now live in Brisbane. I continue to travel and 10 years ago I went to Europe for the 1st time. The most wonderful beautiful experience. I loved every minute of my time touring around Europe with Cosmos tours and I can say I had the time of my life. At that time though, I thought this for me was a one off trip. It had never occured to me that I would return. I have in fact returned many times to Europe. Each time for reasonably long stays and each time I return I learn how to experience it all more easily and more economically. Most of my trips have been to Italy although I have also spent quite some time in the UK and Spain. Italy is the country I love and experience the most and this is my reason for writing this blog. There is so much that I have learned during my many stays in Italy. I plan to share these experiences with you. It may just inspire you to try some of these experiences for yourself.
