AHHH! A return for me to the beautiful country of Italy-I've decided to make it a festival of sorts on my Blog and website-if you go to my website www.lisaengelbrecht.com you'll be treated to Italian Love songs in the background! I will be returning to Italy in May and the deadline for you to join me on this excellent adventure is approaching quickly! I don't want to have you left out. I will be teaching a Five Day class called Fiori Botanici, a watercolor flowers and calligraphy adventure. We'll be learning many things in this class-and I will have a 'theme' for each day of my Italy fest here-but today I want to focus on the adventure itself.
I think of the leap of faith made by Elizabeth Gilbert in the wonderful " Eat Pray Love". Not knowing the language, or really anyone in the country she traveled to Italy. After my big year I find its essential to my spirit to maintain this sense of adventure and spontaneity. I would love to share this with you ( and your partner too!) Words can't really describe this country and Orvieto-the town where we will settle is the quintessential small Italian village-flowers and cobblestones and a sense of peace that you rarely find. Have you been thinking of going? I do hope you'll consider this trip-it truly is going to be once in a lifetime! Please go to www.adventuresinitaly.net for even more beautiful pictures and consider leaping with me-it's going to be great!
