I can across this great blog recently and just have to share it with you all.
http://wanderingitaly.com/blog/ covers a variety of Italy related topics and is well written and amusing.
The owner of this blog is Professional Travel Writer and Photographer, James Martin. His has been writing about Europe almost daily for four years as writer, editor and photographer for the New York Times owned About.com Europe for Visitors site, and along the years has made many contacts and has a vast amount of resources at his disposal for digging out the most interesting information on Europe.
Definitely a site worth checking out in 2009!
