Our Italian Journey – Authors Ilene and Gary Modica

As a Baby Boomer Travel, Health & Wellness Blogger and avid reader, I’ve included a πŸ“š book review segment to my blog. My most recent read is the featured author’s latest publication called …

🌺 Our Italian Journey. 🌺

I first discovered Ilene and Gary’s publications on their travel blog and was impressed with not only their superb website, but also their extensive knowledge of; Italy.

So, I was delighted to have the opportunity to read and to offer a personal review of their first book; πŸ‚ Our Italian Journey.

Our Italian Journey – About The Authors

Our Italian Journey Authors

Both Ilene and Gary hail from the United States, but Gary has family roots and ties going back years in Italy.

Their passion had always been to become Italian citizens {dual citizenship). Gary had a strong desire to bring his family name back to Italy. After years of pursuing the extensive application process, their documentation for citizenship was finally approved.

As a result, their initial one year journey back to Italy began in 2019. The two of them decided to document their entire one year journey and hence, this is what {πŸ‚ Our Italian Journey} is about.

Our Italian Journey – Experience The Real Italy

A number of seasons ago now, my wife and our two children enjoyed an amazing 2 week πŸ›³ Mediterranean Cruise vacation. On this cruise, we were lucky enough to a few stops along the way in Italy.

On our cruise, we made ⚓ port of call and visits in;

Olbia … Naples/Pompeii … Civitavecchia {Rome} … Livorno {Florence/Pisa}

We all loved Italy and were disappointed we could not spend more time in the country.

This is what instantly attracted me to Ilene and Gary’s publications.

Over their initial one year of extensive travel throughout Italy, they take you on a personal journey with them to the many cities, towns and villages throughout the country.

Their personal goal during their first year of travel, was to find the perfect place to call home, for the months they expected to live in Italy each year. With a set of wishes they wanted included in their search, they were off on their adventure.

Not only does their book detail their personal experiences traveling, including all the ups and downs associated with travel, but you will discover some amazing destinations they visited along the way.

One day, we would like to visit and explore this country in more detail. After reading their book, it has inspired me once again, to pack our 🧳 bags and visit parts of Italy I had not even heard of before.
