Aperitivo & Cicchetti | Venice at night – Travel Diary

How do you eat like a local in Venice? Head to a local Bacari, which is the equivalent of a wine bar. Order yourself a glass of your favourite, my choice is always an Aperol Spritz to start. Then pick a selection of Cicchetti. Known as small bites, these are little morsels that will change […]

Vaporetto to Venice – Travel Diary

How to get from Marco Polo Airport to Venice? You take the Vaporetto of course. Who wouldn’t want to take such a beautiful mode of transport :). It will make stops in Venice at San Marco, Rialto, Fondamenta Nuove and Le Guglie.

Day and Night in Rome – Travel Diary

Take a walk through Piazza del Popolo, the Colosseum, the Roman forum, Via del Corso, Vittoria Emmanuelle monument and the  little side streets that bring the city to life. Check out more […]

Stepping inside the Vatican – Travel Diary

Exploring the Vatican is one of my favourite things to do in Rome. It is a place full of religion, mystery and beauty. The pure opulence of the architecture and art is mesmerising. Every time I step inside, all I can think about is how? How did they build this? How did they furnish the […]

Piazza Navona & Bonci Pizzarium Roma – Travel Diary

 What goes best with a walk around Piazza Navona in Rome? Pizza of course. And not just any Pizza, we’re talking Pizza al Taglio from the famous Bonci Pizzarium. Both Piazza Navona and Bonci can be treated as tourist attractions that I personally think you can not miss! Piazza Navona with its beautiful carousel, Italian […]

Exploring the streets of Roma, Italy – Travel Diary

For me, Rome is one of those cities that I fall in love with time and time again. Being my fourth visit to the Eternal City, my ideal past time is walking the streets and getting lost. Everything is in such close proximity, that you really can explore most of the city on foot. The architecture […]

Day Trip to Napoli – Food & Travel Diary – Due

 The day after Christmas, we made our way to Naples again for more pizza. Being just an hour away from the birthplace of pizza, we had to make the most of it. You can have a peak at my first day trip to Naples here, and then also have a squiz at my Napoli post from 2012 […]

Ristorante da Mimi – Sant’Agata, Sorrento

As many of you know, and agree, the food in Italy is amazing. I have a soft spot for the cuisine, and a true love for pizza. This post is going back to my trip from December/January in Italy, which I have slightly neglected as of late. On one particular night just before Christmas, we […]

Reggia di Caserta – Italy Travel Diary

Prior to departing for Italy – there was a lot of research on where to go. I am one of those super planned & eager travellers, who has a spreadsheet for everything and like to source the best places to see and things to eat. The minute I set eyes on Reggia di Caserta, the […]

Exploring Sorrento, Amalfi Coast Italy – Travel Diary

I knew that we had been way too lucky with the weather so far in Italy. A few days into the trip, the real Italian winter came out to play. To be honest, it was a little gloomy and slightly cold, but this didn’t bother me in the slightest. Sorrento is absolutely beautiful! Of course, […]

Day Trip to Napoli – Food & Travel Diary – Uno

Napoli is chaos & I love it! A weird way to start off this blog post, but it honestly is one of the craziest cities I have ever been in. Definitely watch out for those scooters. I love it because there are plenty of places to explore, a lot of history, a beautiful waterfront, and […]

Exploring Ravello, Amalfi Coast Italy – Travel Diary

Buonasera! I hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday night. I am off to see American Sniper soon. It should be good but I don’t think I’ll be in such high spirits after. I had a pretty epic Saturday that I feel you should hear about. Since we had the whole day ahead of us, we decided to […]
