Greetings from TBU in Umbria, Italy!

For nearly a week, I’ve been at the extravaganza that was TBU in Umbria and have been running absolutely amuck meeting new friends, touring the countryside, eating Italian specialties, dancing the night away and absorbing all the bloggy goodness I can from the likes of The Planet D, Legal Nomads, Velvet Escape, Inside the Travel Lab, The Aussie Nomad… (There are plenty more but I’ll stop because I’ve got to run out to a Perugian chocolate factory. Obviously. You know what they say, “When near Rome, do as the near Romans do!”)

Here are a couple of shots I whipped together to tide me over until my next post about Kenya. Stay tuned – that one’s near and dear to my heart and I can’t wait to share.

PS – Oh yeah, check out my guest post “Fiji in Four Words” over at LandLopers today!

    It looks like you are having so much fun! I’m obsessed with Italy, and I’m starting to get really obsessed with travel blogging…sounds like a winning combo. :)

    Having folllowed all the Twitter messages and looking at these pictures I am now convinced it was a fab event (but actually I already knew that :)
    Are you indeed going to TBEX? According to you, what is the biggest difference between TBU and TBEX?

      I’m not planning to go to TBEX, but if I’ve learned anything in all this travel is that my plans never, ever go the way I think they will! I haven’t been to TBEX in a few years, so I can’t really compare them fairly, but I will say I really enjoyed the structure at TBU. After the conference, the entire group stayed together for the most part for organized dinners, which really made for great networking and friend-making. Not sure if TBEX does it like that but they didn’t in the past when I attended.
