I'm in Demand!

First there was the filming with the crew from House Hunters International.  Then came an email from a Milan-based photographer who wanted to meet us and see our village.  Now I've been interviewed by two really cool sites.  I feel so *wanted*!

If you aren't already a regular listener to the Eye on Italy podcast, you should be!  It's a great show with insights into the politics and culture of Italy, always with interesting guests.  It was fun talking about Basilicata with Michelle, Sara and Jessica.  Thanks for having me on the show, girls!  Hop over and have a listen to me in all my Ohio-accentedness (I *really* hate listening to my own voice!)
Eye on Italy podcast

Italian Reflections is kind of like a general store - there's a little bit of everything.  Travel links, news and tidbits about all things Italy, interesting guest posts, and of course, food and wine.  It's a cool place to peruse.  But one section that sets it apart is dedicated to expats and expat-wannabes.  There you'll find links to blogs and websites and info on where to procure products from home.  There are also interviews with expats, which is great; when we were planning our move it was very helpful to hear from others about the joys and pitfalls of such a transition.  They emailed the questions and compiled my responses.

Go.  Listen.  Read.  Report back.

Sounds like fun. But please don't go all Hollywood on us! :)

Saretta - thanks!
Ken - no worries there!

Nice interview! It goes to show you when you take a chance and put yourself out there, the universe responds. I just hope your town doesn't get over-run.

Well done you, I am a fan of both the Eye On Italy podcasts and Italian Reflections group.

Enjoyed the interview; you're doing a lot to put Luncania -- and Trivigno -- on the radar.
