Before we get started I want to share something that I think is important to share with my readers, so please stick with me for a sec!
I got to do a lot of thinking about the blog and it’s future while away, and I must say I experienced a mixed pot of emotions: frustration, excitement, disappointment, & pride to name a few. I have to admit I was starting to feel like The Gourmetour’s future was looking rocky. I found myself questioning the blog world and the genuineness of it all. What is the measure of a successful blog? Is there truly “success” in the blog world? What makes it all worth it? Do we all just become sell-outs in the end? Clearly I was holding onto some strong feelings. To be honest I wasn’t sure if I would continue with The Gourmetour upon my arrival home.
But this morning, while catching up on my usual blog reading, I realized how much I missed all of favorite blogs. So much had changed during the month I was gone, and a lot of people experienced some serious life changes. It put the fact that the blog world will go on without me into perspective, and I realized that I’m not ready to let it all go. My passion was given an extra boost and I remembered why I started my blog in the first place; to provide a platform to share some of my favorite things about food with friends and loved ones. So there it is, I’m back and The Gourmetour is ready to take it up a notch.
Okay back to the good stuff!!!
Finally a live post from me- I’ve missed you so much! Sorry that I didn’t get a chance to check in while abroad, my fears came true that I wouldn’t have a chance to write a post. There is a bright side to this you know… you get to relive my travels with me! Today’s post is not going to be much of a food oriented post, but rather a picture recap of my favorite moments abroad.
Here we go:
Lago Maggiore, Italy
