If you are here for the GUTGAA Meet and Greet, you can find my post here, or just scroll down.
This is my Monday post for the What I Did Last Summer: Fact or Fiction? Blog Hop hosted by Emily R. King and Melodie Wright. I'm sharing a summer story today (under 500 words) and another on Wednesday. It is up to you, the readers, to determine which story is true and which one is false. So here goes...
You may have heard about this book called Twilight. No? Well it's a YA paranormal romance series written by Stephenie Meyer and was kind of popular a few years back. :) Yeah, well. I was kind of a die-hard fan: in line at midnight at Borders *sigh* for each successive book, stalking all fan message boards for any forthcoming movie info, having to buy a second copy of every book because my original set was in tatters from lending it out to every living soul in the world (who am I kidding, I read those babies to death). And I want to hear a woot-woot from anyone who knows who Ilyana Kadushin is. ;)
Well, my obsession had me convincing my husband that for our 10th wedding anniversary, we should make the trip to Volterra, Italy. You know, to retrace Bella's Porsche drive through Tuscany, push our way through the crowds to the clock tower, meet the Volturi, see if Edward was-a-lurking. And because my husband is the bestest in the whole world, he agreed.
We drove miles and miles through gorgeous Italy and up to the ancient city on the back of a Harley that we rented for the day. I took pictures of the clock tower and tried to catch a glimpse of the underground vampire royalty without any luck. But I did end up with a lovely Volterra magnet for my fridge and a bruised butt from riding the Harley all day. And of course I ate some delicious, authentic, Italian, creamy pasta that was almost as yummy as Edward (book version, of course).
And that's my story. Be sure to stop by on Wednesday for Story #2 then let me know (in the comments of each post) which is fact and which is fiction. See you opening night for Breaking Dawn 2!!!
