  1. Debra Syfert

    Bon Noir Christina, I love France & Italy and you are covering them BOTH~what could be better?
    I love your fresh take on traveling in Europe as my family roots come from Italy, Germany, Ireland and England.
    I spent 5 weeks traveling through France, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Italy 3 years ago and my heart is still on “fire” to return once again to rekindle the flame!
    I would warmly welcome a mocha pot into my “cucina”~I would make my grandmother very proud indeed!
    Thank you and it is a pleasure to know you and I look to making my plans for a near future visit. (I’m hoping!)

    Sincerely Yours,
    Debra Syfert
