Want to bring a taste of Italy back home? No problem!
Last night, I met up with Jim and his lovely wife from RealGoodFood.com. We hit it off immediately at la Cantina pub (off Strada Nova, Cannaregio 3689) while they had dinner and I sipped on some smooth Cabernet Franc. While discussing the various pubs in Venice, we started talking about fine home-dining, meaning preparing dishes made of high quality ingredients. That’s where I discovered they have a great import business where they buy the finest Italian olive oil and capers, from personal distributors, which they then bring back in limited quantities to the States. Since they also have had a 10-year love affair with Italy, their palate has become more refined and they couldn’t live without some of these basic ingredients, so they decided, “Why not bring it back to the States,” and this ended up becoming a side business for them.
If you are interested in buying quality extra virgin olive oil which is so good you can drink it, just send them an email. Even though you can bring your own oil bottle to be filled at their warehouse in Oregon, they can easily ship it to you if they have some in stock (and at bulk prices too! Forget Costco!).
Jim is also a fantastic cook and you can enjoy some of his many amazing recipes on www.RealGoodFood.com. He has everything from grilled dish recipes to pastas to desserts!
I love these types of Venice nights! Good wine, good convo’s and great new friends!

Lithuanian minors can tearvl freely in the Schengen Area (which includes Italy) without authorization from their parents since 2007.12.21 , however this document  states that: A MINOR tearvling to Italy as a tourist must have the consent of both parents. His/her birth certificate must be presented and his/her application must be signed by both parents. If the minor is not tearvling with both parents, the parent who is not tearvling must sign a separate, notarized, authorization form. Therefore they will probably still need this paper as per Italy’s request. Now, concerning the hotels, a lot of them have policies, that require a booking be made by an adult, so you should ask your parents to book a room or try to find a hostel those might be more liberal towards young tearvlers. In any case, I recommend to call them before and ask, just to make sure.I hope you have a great holiday!
