Ciao!

Also known as Travel With Val, I am an award-winning multi-media travel journalist and content provider, specializing in video production, Italy and ancestral travel.

Born into a family travel business dating back to 1902, when my great-grandfather booked his friends and relatives from Italy to Ellis Island in steerage class on transatlantic ocean liners as part of the immigration wave.
