Ciao Chow Linda will be on the move in more ways than one, so there won't be any new posts coming for a couple of weeks.
I'm off to Italy to spend a little time with relatives and friends near Milan, then co-leading the "Italy, In Other Words" writing workshop on Lake Como before flying to London to visit my daughter, who has been living there for a year now.
When I do return, you may be seeing an entirely new "Ciao Chow Linda," as my blog undergoes a revamp to update its "look" -- long overdue after nine years with the same format.
In the meantime, if you want to follow along on my trip to Italy and England, I will be posting photos daily on my Instagram account here.
And if the photos of dreamy Varenna have you wishing you were with us on the writing retreat, then contact me to sign up for next year's session. This year's was sold out and we've already had requests for next year, so it's not to early to let us know your interest. You get a discount for early signup. More info here.
