Winner of Book Giveaway Contest for "100 Places in Italy.."

Drumroll please....the winner of the book giveaway contest, 100 Places in Italy Every Woman Should Go (Travelers' Tales) by Susan Van Allen, is Virginia Rocha, from the blog,
Italy Lovers. I was going to draw the winner's name out of a hat, but instead I used Random Number Generator.

I encourage all of you to read Susan's book. You will learn a ton about Italy and chuckle throughout the book as you experience her humorous perspective.

I love the quote at the beginning of the book,
"Whenever I go anywhere but Italy for a vacation, I always feel as if I have made a mistake." --Erica Jong

There are still a few spots open if you'd like to visit some of the "100 Places in Italy" during my women's Italy Retreat in Cinque Terre, Italy from September 11-19.
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest. Please visit us here anytime.


  1. Woohoo! I won the book. Thanks so much, Lenora, for offering this opportunity.

    I have seen that quote by Erica Jong before and always felt it summed up my feelings about Italy.

    Looking forward to enjoying this book.

    Thanks again.
