Happy New Year! Happy Slow Travel in Italy!


Another wonderful and exciting year is coming to an end. I would like to thank all my loyal readers for following Green Holiday Italy on travels and adventures across Bel Paese. 2015 was a busy year for me: I did a lot of freelance travel writing for online and offline publications, set up a new business Abruzzo With Gusto which helps curious travellers to discover local food in my off-the-beaten-track corner of Italy. I have started writing a guide for foodies, which should be finished in the next two months. I have visited Le Marche, Piedmont, Valle D’Aosta, Puglia and shared my stories of green travels with you. This year brought me another victory at the Italy Magazine Blogger Awards where my article about the beautiful Carnival of Ivrea was voted the best of 2015.

I wish all my readers to slow down and appreciate the road less travelled in Italy and elsewhere. Happy New Year!

To round off 2015 I want to list here the most popular posts of the year on Green Holiday Italy:
