Hey Everyone! So this isn’t a real post but I had a few announcements to make and what better way than with a fake post? Bazaaam!
Surviving Is Fancy!
FlipKey (owned by TripAdvisor) just released a Top 8 Tuscany Based Bloggers List and SURVIVING IN ITALY WAS ON IT! HOLY SHIT! WOOT WOOT! We are winning! I’m honored and so excited to be listed with so many amazing bloggers like Girl In Florence. I feel like a shetland pony among unicorns and it feels awesome. Thanks again for all of your support! Seriously, thank you. Check out the awesome list and all the awesome other blogs HERE.
Italy Magazine: Vote For Your Favorite Blog
Also, Italy Magazine is having their blogger contest again so if you’re feeling sassy go vote for your favorite Italy blog or blog post. The shortlist will be available February 2nd. I have no idea if I’ll be on it or not but a lot of really amazing bloggers will be. I kind of wish they had a category for “most swear words.” Fingers crossed! Stay tuned HERE.
Capybaras! Holy Shit!
A badass reader (who I won’t name in case it creeps them out) just brought to my attention that there is a petting zoo nearby my house THAT HAS CAPYBARAS! I’m researching them right now to make sure it’s a place I feel comfortable supporting (I’m weird about animals in captivity…So I have to stalk them to make sure they have the best casa for DWAYNE EVER before I go). Cause animals are cute and helpless so we’ve got to get all bitchy and protect their fuzzy asses. If the place is nice, I may or may not be arrested for stealing and/or flinging myself into a cage to cuddle Dwayne Junior. At minimum I’m going to put him in a tophat. I’ll keep you updated with a video if I go. Fingers crossed it’s an awesome place so I can finally see one in REAL LIFE (instead of obsessively on YouTube Francesco!).
