Join us! Virtual Vacation #3-- Italy
And why not? The food, the history, the sights, the food...
I'm going to break with "tradition" on this geeklist, and present it more as an itinerary with a calculated order to it, rather than just a summary of the country and its characteristic parts.
To me, part of the joy of travelling is making plans, and trying to come up with a logical schedule that balances out seeing the sights/sites that you consider to be essential, and spending most of the day travelling to them.
A lot of times when I read of professional tour group packages, they tend to promise you 10 European countries in 14 days. Mostly because the physical distances between places in Europe make that possible.
There are many times when I would rather spend two weeks in one place, and really get to know it, instead of bopping around from town to town, always travelling and never really stopping to appreciate things.
Since our virtual vacations only last a month (30 days, this time), and this is Italy, we simply cannot spend two weeks in Sorrento, despite it being quaint and relaxing and also close to a lot of other great things and places.
So then; follow along with us and if you've experienced a certain place and have a good (or bad) memory to share, then please add a comment on that day.
As always, I'm hoping that a few local Italians will be able to add some notes of their own, if we hit a region or city that is near and dear to them.
I would love to see your own photos of things, if you upload and post them. Lots of images makes for a nicer geeklist.
As with the previous two Virtual Vacations, I encourage you to purchase a microbadge to show your participation.
