Visit Italy!

My blog is mainly about my relationship with a Filipina, the Filipino culture and mentality and the mindset that I have adopted to successfully deal with culture-shock. I share what I have learned by reading books on relationships, and not just multi-ethnic ones, because the psychology of a healthy relationship is the same whether you are in an interracial marriage or in a “normal” one.

And I also talk about the Tagalog language and I have published posts about places to see in the Philippines.

In my post https://italpinoy1967.com/2020/04/02/is-the-philippines-an-asian-country/
I have mentioned a number of good reasons why the Philippines deserves to be visited.

But what about my country?

Italy is well known as a world-class tourist spot but, because tourism has massively been impacted in a negative way by the Covid-19 crisis, Italy will need plenty of tourists once this crisis is completely over.

In this post I simply want to share a few pictures of my country to kind of entice you to consider visiting it, if you haven’t done it yet.

What I like about this country, apart from it’s history and culture (that would require a separate blog to talk about), is the incredible variety of landscapes we have. We have got pretty much everything: lakes, mountains, an amazing coastline, historic sites and, probably, the best food (even though I consume it in moderation because I am into healthy eating).

Take a look at the following pictures (I have got a lot more pictures stored on various computers and devices but these are some of the ones I have on the one I am using to write this post) and make up your mind…
