I just finished doing a virtual tour. Someone told me about the site virtualtrips.io. It has tours worldwide that you can sign up for — for free! It is a way for the poor out-of-work tour guides to make a little money through tips you leave. I decided to try one of Umbria of a town I’ve never visited, Corciano. The guide was Patrizia and she was quite good. I even see in the list of tours there will be two tours in — wait for it — UMBERTIDE!! I’m shocked! Dates not announced but I’ll post when I hear. There are also other cool looking tours all over the world. This could be a fun way to see some of the world while stuck at home.
Today is Friday. And you know what that means!? Yes it’s Regional food day from Calagrana. Today we will be in Lombardia. The dish is the perennial crowd pleaser, Ossobuco.
And here it is! It was one of the best things we’ve had on the Regional tour.
Italian sentence.”Domani sto facendo commissioni”. English. “Tomorrow I am doing errands” pronounced… doh-mah-nee stow fah-chee-end-oh com-miss-ee-owe-nee.
Stay safe! 🌈
Hi Linda, I will look up guide-collective. Thank you! Don’t you love all the innovative things people are doing now? It’s all a nod to the adaptability of us humans. 🙂💕😅
Hi Steve, I hope you enjoy your tour! Umbertide is a funny town that somehow worms it’s way into your heart 💕🙂
Thank you for sharing the virtual Tour information. There is also another website, that is a magazine, bookclub, Free and paid virtual tours and much more. There are a group of out of work tour guides that share so much ! They are called the guide-collective.
Blogs and podcasts keep us all same during these times. I very much enjoy yours.
Yay, a toofer!! I got a morning and afternoon fix today…. Thanks!
I’m doing my first tour this weekend just for a trial. Really looking forward to the 2 on Umbertide. We’re slowly narrowing down our search & Umbertide is still on our list.
