The year so far has not been easy. I’m not complaining, just stating. I was in desperate need of a vacation, but with a very commitment-phobic attitude, I was unable to decide on a place to go. Enter my friend Elly. She was going to her hometown of Lake Garda in Italy for two weeks and invited me to join her. I did, for eight glorious days. Here’s some of what we got up to.
The Street Art
I have a slight fascination with street art and love noticing it in the various cities I travel. Florence did not disappoint.
I can’t talk about Italy and not talk about the food, of course. Italian food is one of my favourites, not only to eat but to make as well. This trip was immense inspiration for new dishes.
I always wondered what it would be like to have a week of relaxation by a beach to just enjoy the sun, read a nice book, and savour the moment. I finally got to experience that. My book of choice was The Martian by Andy Weir (fantastic read!) and I got to enjoy it in various towns along the coast of Lake Garda.
And that concluded an amazing week in Italy. It was honestly one of the best trips I’ve ever taken, made even better by sharing it with a great friend. Italy, you were a dream.
