Betty Albert Chronicles

California-born Betty Albert is a freelance writer, journalist, blogger and author (“Lost in Italy and Loving it”, Amazon/Kindle). She was practically born in a restaurant, so holds dear the art and science of good eating, healthy living and those who make it so. Betty has a 20-year corporate history with AT&T, another 20 with professional photography, and a love affair with organic gardening fed by her certified naturopathic practice.

Betty has devoted her senior years to updating and sharing researched articles, interviews with interesting people and travel stories. Ever wonder where that giant eggplant came from? Or what a day in the life of a gondolier looks like? Or the 10 best travel tips in XYZ city might be? Or a New Look at Knee Problems! Gastronomic, natural health or travel reads are easy picks in the Chronicles blog.
