My friend and fellow travel writer Barbara Benham has come up with a fantastic concept for a blog — travel contests. In addition to giving the details of various contests, Barbara shares some of her vast travel knowledge in each blog entry. Italophiles listen up! Barbara has found two contests offering a trip to Italy as the prize. One will send you to the 2007 World Pizza Championships (yum!) and the other on a weekend getaway to Rome. Buona fortuna!
