Ciccheti – A True Taste of Venice

By |August 22nd, 2016|Destinations, Italy, Travel Tales, Travel Tips|4 Comments

Venice is one of the busiest tourist cities […]

All of the houses in Burano are painted […]

Happy Monday everyone!

I’m feeling exceedingly chirpy and excited for a Monday morning, because it’s now less than 48 hours until I’m off to Italy!!

My dad is retiring from his job as an accountant and very generously announced last year that he wanted to celebrate by taking the family on a big Italian adventure! What a cool guy my dad is!

So, […]

Santa Margherita is a small town with a population of around 10,000 people and is around 40 minutes from port city Genoa. It’s 15 minutes by […]

During our trip to Italy we knew definitely wanted to visit Portofino, the next town along the coastline from where we were staying in Santa Margherita. We’d also heard that the small town just beyond Portofino was also beautiful, so we decided to visit both in one day.

My family and I hopped on the ferry boat in the morning and […]

Expecting More from Cinque Terre

By |October 5th, 2015|Destinations, Italy, Travel Tales|4 Comments

‘Enchanting‘, ‘wonderful‘, ‘unique‘ – these are just some of the many words I’d heard used to describe the Cinque Terre before my visit there. After reading countless articles describing the incredible beauty of the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre – which means five lands in Italian – I was unsurprisingly eager to visit the area. I’d looked […]

The trip was a celebration of my dad’s 60th birthday and my parents, brother and his girlfriend, Thomas and I all had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect, the sun was shining, the location is simply stunning, the food was delicious […]
