It has been interesting to look back over 2012 to see which posts were the most popular. Bagni di Lucca and Beyond has been Freshly Pressed twice this year, which has been great fun. Thank you WordPress for choosing us.
The first Freshly Pressed post was about my home town of Brisbane for a post I did for Australia Day on 25th January. It was my most popular post of the year.
Number 2 was the second Freshly Pressed post…Cool Helsinki.
The incredible San Lorenzo markets in Florence came third in popularity…with good reason. This place is foodie heaven. I just wish it was a bit closer to home.
Number 4 was the gorgeous China Club in Hong Kong. My friends who live in Hong Kong take me there occasionally…lucky me.
A post called What to do in Bagni di Lucca was number 5. There is lots to see and do in our lovely village.
Number 6 was The most beautiful shop in the world…a big call I know, but I could live in this shop.
Tazza d’Oro, the best coffee in Rome scored 7th place. I can’t leave Rome without stopping for a coffee here.
Eat in Venice was 8th on the list. Venice is one of my favourite places in the world and posts on Venice are always popular.
A post about our growing house in Vergemoli was number 9. We will be back there soon to work on the garden to have the house ready to rent in late spring 2013.
Number 10 was The Amalfi Coast and Villa Cimbrone…surely one of the most beautiful places in the world. I lived near there many years ago and I visit the area as often as I can. 2012 is the 40th anniversary of my first trip to Italy…where does the time go?
The most popular post ever on the blog is one I wrote in 2010 about our Baby Blue Fiat. It has had more than 4,500 hits and somebody looks at it every day. It is a very cute little car.
I wonder what will be popular in 2013.
