Press Release: "An Italian Odyssey" — A Multimedia Presentation

Bookmark and Share


Follow in the footsteps of authors Julie Burk and Neville Tencer as they journey through Italy, a wonderful blend of food, wine, culture and history.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE November 5 2010 Victoria BC Canada

Canadian authors Julie Burk and Neville Tencer of  "An Italian Odyssey: One Couple’s Culinary & Cultural Pilgrimage" will share stories and show photographs from their recent adventure — walking 1,000 km on the Via Francigena, an ancient, elusive pilgrim trail through the heart of Italy.

The couple’s initial plan was to walk and eat their way through Italy using homemade guide and map books. As you might have expected, their adventure took on a life of its own as they faced unexpected challenges. They struggled with the constant physical and emotional demands and outcomes of navigating an arduous route. However, with dollops of Roman and medieval history, a dash of contemporary culture, plenty of sensual food and wine, and gracious Italian hospitality, they shared many romantic and magical moments.

Their journey was a classic bittersweet tale of walking and eating through Italy — a unique culinary and walking pilgrimage.

If you are an armchair traveler, or Camino de Santiago pilgrim and other long distance hiker or person that simply loves all things Italian, please join Julie and Neville.

The presentation will held at Robinson’s Outdoor Store at 7.00pm sharp on November 30 2010. Robinson’s is located at 1307 Broad St, Victoria, British Columbia. Please visit for more information and registrations details. Seating is limited, so please register early.
