Kelly’s number was drawn at random, but I liked what she had to say. It wasn’t a fabulous travel planning tip, but it was something I could identify with.
Kelly’s Comment —
“The hub and I went to Rome for a month. We ate like pigs and both lost at least 15 pounds, from all the walking and because the food is so unprocessed there! I had my first gorgonzola & pear pizza there.”
This has been our experience as well. We eat more on vacation, but we walk a lot and by mealtime we are starving and feel like our bodies really need some fuel. I’m not sure that we’ve actually lost weight, but we usually come home feeling a bit lighter despite what seemed like an excess of food and wine.
Thanks for all the travel tips. I am seriously considering a (somewhat) spontaneous trip to Italy. Rates are pretty good right now! Air fare is tricky, but hotels seem quite reasonable.
