IT'S ALL ABOUT PERSPECTIVE . Never been one to join the doom and gloom brigade. . Just can't seem to make friends with Debby Downer and Negative Nelly . Instead Positive Pat is my man. . Positive Pat digs the good news. He knows that everything is going to be alright and there's no sense is driving yourself ill with sadness on the way up and out. . Taking a note from Positive Pat here's some good news to share with you: . Yesterday the number of people that got better from COVID-19 was almost 1100, more than any other day so far! . Number of new cases decreased in comparison to the previous day . The department for infectious diseases stated that they believe the virus is in its stationary phase. . While there's still some time to go until April 3, a positive outlook reinforces what you're doing is working. . Tomorrow day 11 of lockdown in Italy begins. . Looking for new podcasts to put on the list. . What are you listening to right now ? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #italytravel #loveitaly #italyismytherapy #bestitaliansites #bestitalianplaces #prettypictures #italyonlockdown #italyrightnow #italyinthetimeofcoronavirus #coronavirusitaly #loveitalianlife #readyforavacation #roamtheworld #creatememories #tinymoments #livethelittlethings #showgratitude #positivestateofmind #spreadgoodness #bethelightinthedarkness #glutenfreeitaly #theitalianontour #mycornerofitaly #italianvillages #keeptravelinyourheart

THE DOOR OF OPPORTUNITY . As the saying goes... . One door closes, another door opens. . Sometimes life doesn't go as planned. . Maybe your flight has been cancelled due to recent events . Or you're stuck inside on Day 8 of lockdown . Each one of these events can be a real let down or you can take the glass of vino rosso is half-full approach and maybe even fill it a little fuller with gratitude. . Gratitude for finally being able spend some extra time with your kids that have been sent home from school . Learning to cook a new recipe that you pinned to your board rightly named "Recipes I want to make" . Enjoying some extra time with your furry companions that are celebrating every minute of you being home. . So while the current situation may not be ideal, it's for the best, and it has got us putting on our thinking caps to bring you the newest tour just in time for Italy's truffle season. . #tuttoandràbene = #everythingsgoingtobealright . . . . . . . . . . . PS. Lockdown in Italy is showing some positive effects. Many of the first towns put on quarantine are now virus free . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #italytravel #likealocal #authenticItaly #traveladventure #italyismytherapy #bestitaliansites #exploringitaly #italyrightnow #italyinthetimeofcoronavirus #coronavirusitaly #loveitaly #italiantruffles #italian_vacation #travelmoreoften #seemyparidise #discoveryitaly #italianfoodlovers #italianwinelover #bucketlisttravel #exploringitaly #beautifulitaly #prettylittletrips #visititaly🇮🇹 #trufflehunt #ilovetruffles #italyonlockdown #doorsofitaly

THE NEW NORM . Day 6 of lockdown has arrived. . And I have to say I am impressed by how well we've come together as a country. . Although we're separated by distance, Italy's solidarity is unshakeable. A testament to the strength of its people. . So while we can't see our friends face to face . Must physically distance ourselves when we go out for the necessities . Nothing is crushing the soul of this country, it's people . Italians are still coming together in spirit by: . Taking to their balconies at 6pm and joining in song (check out the stories I've shared some of my favourite feel good musical moments) . And spreading the word "Tutto andra bene" . 👌Everything gonna be right👌 . Have you seen any feel good Italy moments recently? . Send Giovanni and I a dm and we would love to share any recent posts to spread a little light on this dark moment. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #italytravel #loveandlaughter #italyismytherapy #loveinthetimeofcorona #musicsmoothsmysoul #italyUnited #theresnoplacelikeitaly #coronavirusitaly #italian_vacation #prettylittletrips #traveladventure #italyiloveyou #thisjoyfulmoment #theitalianontour #yallersmarche #ascolidavivere #igersmarche #ascolipiceno #likealocal #loveitaly #italian_city #italian_hidden_gems #italyphoto #italyforlife #italianspring #italytravelblogger #mycornerofitaly #italian_trips

THE REAL HEROES . Influencers, newspapers, TV doctors and non-expert opinions fill your feed every day. . It's easy to forget who the real heroes are... . The nurses, the doctors, the volunteers that are putting themselves in the trenches day in and day out to fight this virus. . They're not panicking, they're not running to the supermarket to buy every last roll of TP...(or blue & yellow box of Barilla pasta) . Instead they're the calm in the storm. . Listening to the facts, and doing everything they can to #saveourNonni and the immunocomprised. . They're not just nurses and MDs, they're caregivers, mothers and fathers making daily sacrifices. . While we're being asked to stay home, they're being asked to isolate and stay away from their loved ones. . As this virus spreads I hope that other nations will realize that acting swiftly and encouraging behaviour that prevents the spread of the virus is the best course of action. . The strain the coronavirus is having on Italy's healthcare system is a big concern that is now trickling down to other nations. . Canada is now preparing by asking doctors to come out of retirement. . Many of my friends and family in Canada, who are nurses, doctors and medical professionals are bracing themselves for what's to come next . Canada's call to action is just another sign that this is a world problem and nations across the world need to band together to stop the virus. . No matter where you are in the world you can take a note from the real heroes and do your part by not panicking, following the precautions set out by the professionals, and getting the facts from infectious disease specialists (not another TV doctor or prime time host) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #italytravel #bestitaliansites #exploringitaly #beautifulitaly #prettylittletrips #traveladventure #italyiloveyou #italyismytherapy #glutenfreegirl #italyrightnow #italyinthetimeofcoronavirus #ascoliinthetimeofcorona #yallersmarche #ascolidavivere #igersmarche #ascolipiceno #likealocal #loveitaly #getexpertadvice #trustaspecialist #infectiousdisease #getmedicaladvicefromdoctorsnotinstragram #italyonlockdown #italyforlife

POSITIVE STATE OF MIND . Italy's measures may seem drastic by some but they are showing positive outcomes already on day 2 of lockdown. . #1 there was an almost 50% decrease in new cases yesterday compared to the previous day . #2 Italy’s first town on lockdown was declared virus free 🎉 . #3 it's working!😀 . So let's be positive and show our strength. . With these results Italy will soon put the smackdown on this virus for good . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #likealocal #loveitaly #italian_city #italian_hidden_gems #creatememories #tinymoments #livethelittlethings #glutenfreeitaly #theitalianontour #coronavirusitaly #italian_vacation #travelmoreoften #italian_hidden_gems #loveandlaughter #italyismytherapy #bestitaliansites #exploringitaly #beautifulitaly #prettylittletrips #traveladventure #italyiloveyou #travelitalyauthentically #authentictravel #theresnoplacelikeitaly #theresnoplaceidratherbe

ONLY UNTIL APRIL 3RD . Yes it is true all of Italy has been asked to stay at home until April 3rd. . This is to minimise the spread of the virus. . However if you're in Italy here's a couple things to note: . The museums are closed and restaurants remain open until 6pm . You can still enjoy a leisurely lunch out or a double Cappuccino morning . Or a walk in the park as long as you maintain the 1 metre rule. . Shops are open (including clothing stores, pharmacies, etc..) and of course grocery stores are as well. . In the meantime check out the stories for daily shots and videos from on the ground in Italy 🇮🇹. . April 3rd will be here sooner than you think . . . . . . . . PS. I also stand corrected. Milan's airport is still operating. You'll find a recent article in Forbes. . . . . . . . . . . . #likealocal #loveitaly #italian_city #italian_hidden_gems #creatememories #memoriesforlife #traveldreamseekers #wanderluster #italiancoffee #coffeeitaly #espressobar #caffeinecouture #glutenfreeitaly #glutenfreelife #prettylittletrips #traveladventure #italyiloveyou #theresnoplacelikeitaly #italian_vacation #travelmoreoften #seemyparidise #discoveryitaly #updatesfromitaly #italyrightnow #italyismytherapy

DISPELLING CURRENT MYTHS . There has been a lot of crazy news lately and some of it is far from the truth . Here's your update from on the ground in Italy 🇮🇹 from a local . #1 not all of Italy is a red zone. . There's been some rumours going around that the red zone is to last for 2 years and that is simply NOT TRUE . #2 the red zone (cities on lockdown are mostly located in Lombardy which is far from Ascoli) is in effect until April 3rd . Italy is taking precautions to fight this beast and be done with it once and for all. . #3 your tour with us does NOT travel to any red zones. . Ascoli Piceno has no cases (knock on wood) and the locals, including us, are continuing about their daily lives. . With any cold and flu season we're taking precautions as usual. . Scrubbing our hands for at least 20 seconds, because preventative medicine is best route of action. . #4 there are still plenty of flights to Italy . Google it if you don't believe it (and you might even score yourself a super deal) . Just don't look for flights to Milan as this is in the red do not travel zone. . Instead you'll find flights to Rome (and when you book a trip with us, we'll be there to pick you up when you arrive 😀) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #italytravel #likealocal #loveitaly #italian_city #italian_hidden_gems #creatememories #tinymoments #livethelittlethings #mycornerofitaly #italyrightnow #glutenfreeitaly #theitalianontour #italyismytherapy #bestitaliansites #exploringitaly #beautifulitaly #prettylittletrips #traveladventure #winelovers #wanderluster #ineedavacationasap #ineedavacay #ineedatriptoitaly #italyiloveyou #travelitalyauthentically #authentictravel

DREAMING ABOUT PIAZZA LIFE . This photo was taken when this was a slow day in the piazza and a mid afternoon coffee break was always taken at the bar . Today marks 30 full days of piazza life on hold. . 30 full days of getting a caffeine fix at bar casa mia . And every day more grateful for the little things like having an espresso machine at home and not a moka 😂 . Still when this lockdown is over one of the first things I'll be doing is grabbing at Cappuccino at the bar. . It's a reminder of those days when we lived in Canada and I'd be waiting all year long for my first real Italian coffee. . And as soon as I would get off the plane at Fiumicino, I'd bee line it straight to the first espresso bar. . What's the first food, dish or drink that you can't wait to have out when this is all over? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #likealocal #italytravel #keeptravelinyourheart #loveitaly #foodfantasy #coffeelove #espressobar #caffeinecouture #aftercovid19 #lookingtothefuture #glutenfreeitaly #glutenfreelife #prettylittletrips #visititaly #postponedontcancel #italian_vacation #travelmoreoften #italian_hidden_gems #creatememories #tinymoments #livethelittlethings #mycornerofitaly #foodfantasy #wanderluster #readyforavacation #bestitaliansites #exploringitaly #beautifulitaly
