Ciao!  Thanks for stopping by.

Eating the most delicious spaghetti con frutta di mare (seafood) in a little trattoria on the Sicilian island of Panarea.

Travel and great food: these are two loves of my life. New experiences and discoveries are my driving force; I crave adventure. I’m certain I’d go crazy if I don’t have an adventure to look forward to that’s booked — be it a weekend in Margaret River or a three month European odyssey, it doesn’t matter. As long as I know for certain that there’s travel in the near future, then everything (and everyone) will be okay.

About Dianne Bortoletto

I enjoy learning about new cultures, find humour in every day things, seek out great gourmet indulges, whether generated in my kitchen, from a street vendor, in an unassuming cafe, or at a fine dining exquisite and expensive restaurant. I’m a people watcher, a story teller, avid photographer and videographer and I love to write. One thing that people find strange is that I really enjoy shopping in supermarkets in foreign countries — it’s not weird!

Born to Italian parents, I’m a Melbourne girl who has lived in Canberra, Sydney, London, Rome for a short time, before finally adopting Perth, Western Australia as home.

I’m a PR professional and I work for myself at Pronto PR. I am often engaged by clients to write for them – be it for the media, brochures, websites and newsletters. More about my day job can be found here. I’m also a freelance writer and have been published in a number of magazines and media outlets, you can read more about that here.

Married to a wonderful husband of Greek heritage, you will find many references to ‘Zorba’ in my posts.  We share a passion for food and for travelling.  He can be the ‘spending police’ — which is probably a good thing because if I could, I’d win a gold medal for Australia with my spending talents. We also have a little gorgeous West Highland Terrier pup called Bella.
