6) Nelson & his Portuguese food journey – his blog has made me want to head on a culinary journey of Portugal; just look at these gorgeous photos! Nelson spoke about food writing at TBDI2014 and is currently working on his upcoming Portuguese Travel Cookbook.
7) Anna of Green Holiday Italy – this lady is living the dream! Bought a house and a farm in Abruzzo, a relatively lesser known part of Italy, and is promoting slow and eco-conscious travel. Anna recently posted a great tip on how to score a free BnB accommodation in Italy by bartering – read here.
8) Katja of Skimbaco – if you’re an Instagram addict (I’m getting there!), you’ve probably heard of Instagram Travel Thursday. Founded by Katja, #IGTravelThursday is a community of sorts for sharing travel inspiration – details here.
These are just a few of the many, many interesting & fun people I met during the three-day event.
A big thank you to TBD Italy for inviting me & for making sure that I was well looked after, especially thanks to Emiliana who was in-charge of our group of Food & Travel bloggers. Both Emiliana and Anna have made sure that I have added Abruzzo to my list of places to visit in Italy – on my next trip!
After TBDI, I went off on a long trip around il bel paese – from Le Marche to Sicily, from Rome to Venice, and a few more stops in between! I’ll be posting about this soon, so stay tuned…

Meanwhile, just a few glimpses of Le Marche – an Italy waiting to be discovered.
