Why do I write about Italy?

Posted on June 1, 2011


I was recently assigned a blog post on the topic “Why I write about Italy.” Well, assigned would make it sound like something bad. More like “given the opportunity.” This made me reflect on writing in general, for I get the impression that I’d write about my experience wherever I was. On the other hand, being in Italy gives me lots of opportunity to write about interesting things, places, and food. It was a rare personal blog post on arttrav and people responded very well, leaving lots of comments on the blog and on facebook. Makes me think that being personal may be the right approach to travel writing!
