Farewell Florence! XO

Welp, it’s here. The last post of my Italy trip. Le sigh. 🙁

I’d love for the posts continue forever [Lord knows I have enough photos to do so], but it’s time to wrap them up + get back to reality. Boo. Today, I’m sharing some pictures from the last week of our trip! 🙂

The Land Of My People!

Both sides of my family are Italian; my Mother’s family is from Ischia — a small Island off the coast of Naples, and my Father’s family is from Calabria, the Southern most point of the country + just a hop skip and a jump away from Sicily. We’ve been to Ischia before [it’s stunning] + actually took a quick day trip so my Dad could see this time around, but we were really excited to spend a little time in Calabria + explore our roots!

Sorrento | Pompeii | Capri | Amalfi

Happy Wednesday!

I wanted to share some photos from what was probably the most beautiful leg of this trip. We stayed in Sorrento for 4 days, and while there, we visited Pompeii, Capri, and Amalfi! I tried to choose just a few photos to share from each. 🙂

Roaming Around Rome

Happy Monday! 🙂

I cannot believe this is my last week in Italy! The time has flown by way too quickly. I had wanted to get this post up yesterday, but we spent the weekend traveling + it just wasn’t going to happen. 🙁 So, a little Monday morning Rome-recap it is!

Who Needs A Keurig?!

The coffee here is phenomenal, downright delicious in-fact. I’ve hit up dozens of cafes at this point, but when you wake up in the morning, it’s nice to have a cup at home.
cafe2 Unfortunately, not all of the places we’ve stayed have come equipped with a coffee pot [Milan], and I’m 99% positive the Keurig is non-existent in this country…so, we had to get creative with the espresso pot! Thanks to YouTube [and my MacGyver of a Mama], we were able to make some pretty darn delicious coffee from the comfort of our own kitchen.

We [she] were pretty proud, so we decided to document the process…you know, in case any fellow coffee-fiends have never done this before + ever find themselves in a similar situation! 😉

Here we go! –>
