I just realized that I let our blog's anniversary pass without so much of a mention. Sorry. Actually, our very first blog post was on July 31, 2014... way back when we started planning our Grand Voyage to Italy. Our first post was Bringing Dad with us to Italy: A Traveling Homage. For a first post, it's wasn't too bad. Hey, anything that mentions my Dad, Saverio, can never be bad anyway.
Our actual Voyage began on October 1st, 2014... just over a year ago. Writing this post has kept all the memories alive, and helped keep La Bella Italia alive in our daily lives. I hope Grand Voyage Italy has also helped you plan a trip to Italy, enjoy one of our recipes, learn some history, or just have a few laughs... all the while, keeping Italy alive in your own day to day life.
I do want to thank the nearly 17,000 visitors we've had on our pages. You've read a combined total of almost 55,000 posts! Mille grazie a tutti. You humble us.
Leave a comment and let us know how we've been doing this past year...
