Summer is in its waning days and in less than 2 weeks fall will be upon our doorstep. Besides an upcoming change of seasons, this point in time marks over 3 weeks since we closed the doors of Fuel for the Soul. While we will retain our current web address, in early 2019 we will transition to more of a blog format focusing on food, wine & travel. Tiziana will continue to share food tips, ideas & new discoveries and Joel likewise regarding the topic of wine. Here you'll be able to keep up-to-date on our whereabouts, whetherr for our Italy based explorations or travels around the globe.

We'll also use the Fuel for the Soul blog to announce our annual ski trips, as well as the progress we're making towards launching a late summer/early fall trip in 2020. This will be the trip to incorporate hiking in the Dolomiti, optional bike trips, cooking classes, wine tasting and cultural immersion. We envision a trip of 7 days or so to include some or all of the items above. We'll base out of the family lodge, Rifugio Duca d'Aosta, but given road access this tiime of year, we'll have the ability to take day trips to our cultural havens and towns in the vicinity. Maybe a day of wine tasting in the Veneto region or heading north to Dobbiaco, near the Austrian border, to experience a bit of the Germanic side of Italy. Stay tuned for details as we hone the activities of this non-skiing trip.

For now, house is on the market and we're waiting for the offer that will set all of our plans in motion. Until then, we'll be hanging our hats in Boise, taking some side trips and waiting to pull the ripcord on our move to Italy via San Diego (yes, alittle beach/sand/surf time is planned before heading to the Alps!).

Keep yours eyes peeled for more info on this website/soon-to-be-blog. In the meantime, while we don't have classes, you can head to the "Teach Me" section to do allittle shopping, as we're selling off most of our worldly possessions. You can still keep in touch with either Tiziana or Joel by dropping an e-mail to your individual of choice

We thank you all for enriching our lives these past 8 years as so many of you have become part of our extended family. While we may not see you as often, you'll be permanently etched in our hearts & forever in our thoughts. Until next update or in-person encounter, be well!

For those of you wanting alittle information on our ski trips (2019 all sold out!) and the soon to come late summe/early fall non-ski trip, read on below.

Our intention is to continue our annual intimate Winter Ski Trips in Cortina d'Ampezzo. In fact, interest in our 2019 week-long ski trips, our 8th annual offering, was so intense we upped the number of trips from 2 to 4. So Tiziana will be skiing for a solid month in the Dolomiti of Italy during the Winter of 2019. Lots of returning clients/friends, as well as plenty of folks making the trek for the 1st time. Our intent is to keep these trips going for as long as there is interest in our doing so. Information on the ski trips will be posted on this website, our Facebook page and sent out to those on our mailing list.

In the Summer of 2020, we hope to launch a "warm weather" version of our ski trips. Well no skiing per se, but lots of varied adventures await those looking to explore the Italian Alps in the late summer or early fall. Based out of the family run Rifugio Duca d'Aosta, which is a mountain lodge, the intent is to craft a week-long trip that will include day hikes in the Dolomiti, wildlife viewing, optional mountain biking throughout kilometers of incredible trails and a new version of cooking classes. We'll have 1 or 2 days where we'll go into town & shop for the day's lunch or dinner meals and then all assemble in the large commercial kitchen of the Rifugio to prepare that particular meal under the tutelage of Tiziana. Also looking to incorporate trips to the Veneto region for Prosecco tasting and possibly to an olive orchard where you can pick some olives and press your own bottle of olive oil. Over the coming months, we'll be refining the itinerary for these very special guided summer/fall trips. So once again, stay tuned as information on these new summer/fall trips unfold.

We look forward to staying connected with all of you and hopefully having some of you join us in Italy for more unique Fuel for the Soul adventures. Please be sure to “LIKE” our page when you check us out on Facebook. And while we'll have less of a presence in Boise on a daily basis, this special City of Trees will remain a most special place for us & one that will remain on our travel circuit over the coming years of being full fledged empty-nester world travelers! To exploration and great eating!! Buon Appetito e Buon Viaggio!!!
