Acetaia Malagoli Guido
So there we were in the heart of Emilia Romagna, one of the regions with the best food in all of Italy waking up next to a balsamic farm. If you havent read about how we found ourselves here in the heart of nonantola, check out our post on arriving to La Selvatica. Enrico had…
La Selvatica: Into the Wild.
Both my husband, Shawn and I work in restaurants and you could say we are pretty passionate about food and beverage. A lot of the choices we make when traveling directly correlates with one or both of those things so you can imagine why visiting Emilia Romagna was at the top of our list. Modena…
Bar Luce: A stop off the normal path.
Ever since I saw the film ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’, I have been infatuated with Wes Anderson. His creativity is like no other I have ever seen. I appreciate how all the details fit together from color scheme, to casting, to every soundtrack. As soon as I found out that he designed a bar in Milan…
36 Hours in Cinque Terre: Manarola and Corniglia
We spent time in Riomaggiore and Monterosso al Mare before we arrived here in Manarola. We made our way over to Manarola by way of the train and started to explore all the seaside trails where some of the more commonly seen pictures of Cinque Terre were taken. There were huge black rocks around where…

Roman Holiday : Aperol Spritz, Roman Ruins
We started Day Three (if you missed our first few days, check them out here.) with tickets to visit the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. After stopping for our morning cappuccino at the cafe underneath the hostel, which was quickly becoming morning routine for us, we began the walk over. Again, we used Get your…
Roman Holiday: My love affair with Rome.
Rome has everything. History, architecture, art, religion. Narrow cobblestone streets that wind leading into huge piazzas centered around century old fountains that Romans still drink from today.The piazzas are lined with local shops, cafes, bars, children running, playing, and laughing, tourists being suckered into cheesy souvenirs, locals gossiping at lunch, and even the cliche old…
The Broke Girl’s Guide to Travel: Europe Continued
Step Three: Choose which sites you want to visit. When you are in a new city the last thing you want to do is wait in some atrocious line all to find out tickets for the day are sold out. You have a limited amount of time and the cheapest way to see the sights is…
