~ Travel ~
Italy is a country that is pretty close to my heart I love the architecture the pace of life and more importantly the food. My aunty lives in a town called La Spezia relatively near Pisa therefore for what I think has been the past 5 years ( say whaatt?!) I’ve spent a week or two of my summer each year in Italy.
Unfortunately you would imagine that having spent so much time in the country that my Italian would be fairl y good but I know hardly any of the language apart from the odd phrase here or there that usually involves food. Yes Gelato con panne i.e ice cream with whipped cream i’m looking at you.
But to be able to wake up to these picturesque blue skies everyday was bliss even if I was melting away in the nearly 40 degree heat!
Breakfast was quite the highlight for the first couple of days when we had arrived and I couldn’t get enough of the nutella filled chocolatey goodness croissants Half way through the holiday we decided a day at the beach was what we all needed and so we ventured on 3 Italian trains in search of Vernazza one of the cinque terre 5 lands. We endured a few travel dramas along the way e.g pressed against train door by swarms of tourists whilst under a tunnel #claustraphobiacentral but managed to arrive in one piece!
Although it was quite dull and overcast the beach looked amazing the turquoise blue water sparkled and despite not gaining a tan and returning like perhaps even more of a milk bottle it was a great day out in such a beautiful area of Italy.
The holiday was not complete without a visit to Sephora in which I did some damage to the euros. But I’ll write a post solely on my purchases
Ciao Italy you were a treat!
