La Blog-gah – the inspiration behind the crazy adventures

Posted by Lia on January 4, 2012

With the New Year moving at full speed ahead, here at Italian Adventures, we’re trying to keep up with all of the excitement! Staying focused can be difficult at times, which brings me to the topic of this week’s blog-gah: the inspiration behind Italian Adventures.

Why Italian Adventures? Why not….cycling adventures? Or mathematical adventures?

Okay, slightly random…..

But the inspiration behind this project is (drum roll): my grandmother. My nonna (i.e. grandmother) is probably one of the coolest people I know. She is courageous, passionate, and approaches life with endless amounts of energy.

And yes, my nonna is Italian, from Tuscany to be exact. She moved from Italy to Canada during the 1950′s, and through language, food, and various family traditions, has been able to share such a rich culture with us.

I am grateful for my nonna’s generosity, and thrilled to be continuing this journey with Domenico and Matteo, and of course, with you!

Until the next blog-gah…ciao-ciao!
