It was like a weight holding us down, preventing us from moving. They called it the hottest place in Europe, I later learned after reading the papers. Ferrara, serving as the host city for an annual tradition dating back to , brings a number of towns together for the Palio di Ferrara. In colored vestments and heavy armor, participants paraded down the main street.
Thankfully, they managed, and we were presented with an amazing series of colorful visuals, flag dances and marching bands. Last night I had a dream I was back in Italy. I opened my eyes and saw the Roman Colosseum in front of me, as if coming up from the Roma Metropolitana.
I remember feeling instantly elated. My parents were there. It was winter. Little kids were ice skating it was a dream and little bits of white dust or snow were falling gently like they do in every other Ridley Scott film. Not being able to sleep, I decided to revisit Italy. Not Rome this time, but Rimini.
The BlogVille project- Wanna eat, feel & live like a local in Emilia Romagna?
I wanted to go back to a particular sunny day when fellow BlogVille photographer Asgeir Pedersen , writer Gina Stark and I visited the Grand Hotel Rimini , the most historic and, perhaps, the most beautiful hotel in Rimini. So began my first spa experience, a full-body oil massage in the Hotel delle Terme Santa Agnese in Bagno di Romagna, a popular spa town in Emilia-Romagna. The scent of steam and sulfur is apparent upon entering the city as thermal water flows naturally here. Bagno di Romagna consists of one main street and a large central piazza.
Each of its many shops are charming and friendly, and the town features high-end, even Michelin-starred restaurants.

This will be my home-base and office while I live and work in Italy. Over the next several months, I will be visiting and blogging about numerous schools in Europe, seeking out and promoting the best study and work abroad programs for young Europeans and Canadians! Between Canada and Europe thousands and thousands of visas are available for students and young professionals to gain valuable career experience on either side of the pond.
So whether you are a European planning to study, work or explore Canada or a Canadian wanting to further your education and career in Europe , there is a plethora of programs available to you! From the blogger side of things, there is also much to look forward to as I attend the Travel Bloggers Unite conference in Umbria, meeting other travelers and technophiles from around the world while learning how the travel blogging business is growing and changing. I was instantly sold on the tour that will take us to the Perugina Chocolate Factory, Museum and Cooking School with a little lesson from an Italian pastry chef.
Many more delicious details to come! All this traveling and blogging leads me to 2 more great weeks participating in BlogVille Emilia Romagna where I will spend 1 glorious week in June at a beautiful apartment in the seaside resort of Rimini and another week in May in the heart of historical Bologna. Grande idea!
Bloggers will now have their own home, a perfect place from where they can start to discover Italy and the Emilia Romagna region. From the 23rd of April to the 31st of May in Bologna and from the 2nd of June to the 14th of July in Rimini , BlogVille Emilia Romagna , thanks to two apartaments, will be the perfect place from where you can start to discover Italy and the Emilia Romagna region. We will also help you to create an interesting itinerary for you and your readership throughout the Emilia Romagna, and of course BlogVille will be the perfect place to experience and share things with other bloggers.
I am so excited to be a part of this forward-thinking project and to spend the months ahead delving into Italian culture, language and society! Tags: assisi , blog , bloggers , blogville , conference , emilia romanga , italia , italy , tbu , travel , travel blogging , umbria. From Jessica :.
