A Day in the Life of a Blogger Trip to Modena, Italy

I know you guys are still getting used to all the different styles of episodes I’m doing now, but this is one of the last ones, I swear.

I did a “Day in the Life…” episode a while back and it was really popular. I think it’s a pretty fun format. Lots of these vlogs show just a snippet of my day. They often make it look like I’m only working for 10-20 minutes a day. When, the reality is that a day in the life of a travel blogger is always busy. If you’re not out exploring or taking part in some activity, you’re working on the computer or researching or any number of other things.

So, I thought that a couple times a month I’d do these episodes. I’ll trace what I’m up to each hour as the day goes along. Moreover, each time I’ll take a different angle. For example, this one is “A Day in the Life of a Travel Blogger”, in the future I may do a wildlife photographer, or something like that. I think it’ll be fun.

The first day in my life was a pretty food-filed one here in Italy. Check it out:

Some Photos from the Day

It was a very food-heavy day in Emilia Romagna, and I’m not complaining about that at all. The food in this area is next level. I really wish I could just stay here and eat, and get fat, and not worry about it. Of course, with such a food-heavy day, most of the images from today are food.
