When I tossed a coin in the Trevi Fountain in Rome last year, little did I know that I'd be returning to the city so soon! Yes, Italy beckons once again and I am so glad to be escaping the infernal October heat here; can't wait to experience #AutumnInItaly :)
I am on my way to my very first travel blogger conference, in Rimini Italy. The good folks at Travel Blogger Destination Italia (TBDI) sent me an invite way back in July and since then I have been planning another epic trip around il bel paese.
A bit about TBDI
It is already known that bloggers are increasingly becoming an important part of promoting destinations. So it's no surprise that the prestigious TTG Incontri, the main international B2B fair on tourism in Italy, started the TBD Italia project last year - a format within TTG Incontri that is dedicated to travel bloggers and digital media. In 2014, TBD Italia will connect some 300 bloggers with the B2B operators in the tourism industry. Of these 300 bloggers, 100 have been chosen as TOP Bloggers - including yours truly!
