While I Am Flying... Stopping at Frankfurt, then Milan

I'm currently up and away tens of thousands of feet up in the sky, and thought I'd schedule this post ahead of time and let it pop while I fly. I'll be transiting at Frankfurt, Germany, before arriving in Milan, Italy today. This is my second trip to the beautiful country; the first was last year in November making Rome my base to Naples, Pisa, Florence and other beautiful medieval villages.

There will be lots of things to keep me busy while I travel. I have my iPad with me that is already installed with Kindle and Zinio. Kindle will handle all my bookish needs and it's loaded with language books, novels and non-fictions. Zinio takes care of all my magazine needs and it's loaded with English and foreign language mags in Italian (of course!) and French. I'll be adding Spanish to the collection soon. I wrote a Zinio-related post on Reading Foreign Magazines to Learn a Language, and thought I'd share it with you again. Now, all I have to ensure is my devices are fully charged to survive the journey!

Meanwhile... I strongly encourage you to participate in a Book Giveaway I'm currently hosting for author Donald R. Grippo for his book To Sleep...Perchance to Die. Check out the giveaway and author interview here. It's open internationally until Sunday, 29 June 2014 23:59 Eastern time. Please leave your email and state book preference (e-book or print copy) in the Comments section in the post and you will be entered for the draw. I will be announcing the winner on Monday, 30 June 2014 while I'm in Italy. The publisher will then get in touch with the winner to send the book. In bocca al lupo! Good luck!
