November’s Interview with Margie Miklas (margieinitaly)

Ciao a tutti e bentornati nel mio blog!
Today I am sharing with you the interview I have made to the lovely Margie Miklas. Keep on reading to find out more about her and what she wrote about Italy!
Who is Margie Miklas?
I am an American who fell in love with Italy the first time I visited, and felt at home when I was there. I write a blog, margieinitaly, and you can follow my travels through Italy. I published my first book this past year, Memoirs of a Solo Traveler – My Love Affair with Italy, and am working on a second book, My Love Affair with Sicily.  
  • Have you ever been in Italy? If so, where? 

Yes, all over. I have been to Italy fives times, and the only regions I have not visited are Marche, Sardinia, and Piemonte.

  • Can you tell a funny/memorable moment of your life regarding Italy/Italian language?

Yes, the first time I was in Sorrento, I didn’t know much Italian, but was trying to speak it as best I could. When I asked a police officer for directions in Italian, he said, “Do you speak English?” and the proceeded to give me the directions in perfect English.

  •  What is your favourite Italian word and why?

I like the word “Prego” because it is simple and can mean a number of things. Very useful every day.

  • What is your favourite Italian food and why? 

My friends think it is pasta pomodoro, and maybe it is, but I really like authentic margherita pizza in Italy and now that I have discovered cacio e` pepe in Roma, I think that may be my favorite food. The sauce, though, of pasta pomodoro is always so good, never disappoints, and reminds me of my Italian grandmother.

Thank you, Margie, for answering my questions!

  1. Good Margie. I was there in August visiting friends. It was my first time in Italy and it was absolutely divine, I know you won’t be disappointed. I stayed in a lovely little B&B, Il Campo dei Papaveri, in Mornese, a beautiful small town that is infused with beauty and spirit and surrounded by pine hills and vineyards. I look forward to reading about your travels in Italy. Grazie!
