Italy Travel Memoir: Delusional Divas doing Italians...oops Italy

It’s been a while since I’ve done a giveaway and I’m excited that the first one of 2013!

A few months ago I connected with one part of the travel writing duo responsible for the book, The Delusional Divas Doing Italians…ooops Italy.  These ladies ditched everything in search of love and adventure in beautiful Firenze (Florence, Italy).

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was a bit hesitant to dig into their book as I’m not usually a fan of travel memoirs, but after a few pages I was hooked. The more I read about these best friend’s mis-adventures, the more I thought about similarly wacky adventures of my sometimes travel buddy, Neera, who I met over a decade ago in college.

Maybe you’re not heading Italy looking for love, but if you’re looking for a little travel inspiration, a ton of laughs and some ideas on what to do on your next trip to Italy, this is the perfect book for you.

    27.) I haven’t been to Italty, yet but it’s definitely somewhere, after much hype, that I’d like to visit! This definitely seems like my type of read and I absolutely love the title. It alone gives a window into the goodness inside! :) Thanks for doing such an awesome contest!


  2. Tawanna Says:

    26.) I got some Italy romance stories of my own to tell. Ha! Did a semester in Firenze when I was a junior in college and it was an amazing adventure. Oh, the memories.


  3. Elisabeth Says:

    25.) My husband and I visited Rome, Italy this past summer!


  4. Gretchen Says:

    24.) I’ve never been to Italy and am about as far from being a diva as one could get…. but the trailer film looks delightful! It might be time to look at a new way of travelling, and I would love to visit Italy. Thanks for generously giving away not 1.. but 3… copies of this book.


  5. Kristen Says:

    23.) I got to spend a few days in Florence, Rome, and Milan studying abroad last summer. I must say Firenze holds some of my best Italian memories! Maybe this book will inspire me to convince my best friend to also drop everything and head to Italy upon graduation!


  6. Sofie Says:

    22.) I’ve been to Italy twice. Once was with my parents when I was very young, about three years old. We never went back there when I was a child because it had rained our entire vacation and although my parents rationally knew that it couldn’t rain each time we would go, they avoided the country for many years.
    Recently they started to go back because my dad wanted to take some photography workshops that took place in Umbria. Seeing his pictures has made me want to explore the country.
    I’ve only been to Milan once and guess what… It were the only days that summer that it rained and that it was 18°C.
    It hink I deserve a ‘third one’s a charm’, no?:)

  10. Shari Says:

    18.) I have had Italy as part of a travel itinerary for a few years now. However, I seem to manage a detour and wind up in another country. Perhaps reading about the antics of these two travel buddies will huury my travels to Italia.


  11. Renee Winston Says:

    17.) This book sounds great!!! Especially for a newly divorced 41 year young woman starting life all over the right way. Oh by the way I am going to Jamaica in April…can you give me the name of someplace wonderful to stay preferably with the locals. I stayed with locals when I went to Ghana and I had the best time ever.
