Touring the Carrara Marble Mines in Italy is a sensational, out of the ordinary travel adventure. I highly recommend the tour and wrote an article about it for My Itchy Travel Feet, a travel blog for Boomers.
Ski in Chocolate? Sounds like fun …but I learned to make chocolate truffles in Florida.
Italy’s Cortina d’Ampezzo announced it will stage a ski race with a chocolate theme during the Eurochocolate Festival held in the famous Italian ski town from December 16-19th.
It is the very first time that the International Chocolate Festival, Eurochocolate, takes place at altitude and the race is just the tip of a chocolatey iceberg. Eurochocolate Ski will offer chocolate experiences directly on the slopes or skiers can warm up with an invigorating cup of thick hot chocolate in one of the traditional mountain chalets.
