Where am I?

It’s a romantic country, they say.

It’s somewhere you wouldn’t want to visit on a cruise.

It’s in the northern emisphere, in fact it’s freezing cold here.

Its food it’s…well…very famous.


What happened, you might wonder, how come we didn’t know?
Truth is, until Thursday, I didn’t know either!

I woke up on Thursday, looked up the first flight and said to L.
“I am going to Italy tomorrow”
even if I had never flown such long distances alone before.

25 hours later my family picked me up from Milan Airport,
everyone quite shocked and surprised to see me back after two long years.

nullWhat’s more romantic than fog?

I can’t even describe what I am feeling right now,
two years is a bloody long time!

Nothing has changed very drastically in my foggy little town,
however everything seems smaller in size than how I remembered it.

And, yes, the food is still amazingly tasty and delicious!

I will try to keep you updated with my Italian cooking adventures,
although instead of baking amazing Italian sweets,
people here would rather have me busy with cupcakes, a novelty for most Italians!

Is there something you always wanted to know about Italy/Italians?

  3. Is American Italian food way different than the real deal? Describe gelato to me–the real kind. Are Italian men really romantic and passionate as they are portrayed? Have you met the Pope yet?

    Hey, you said ask away :)

  4. your family lives in Milano? You lucky girl!! how long will you be in Italy for?
    I just went to Italy last Oct/Nov and I miss it dearly!

    my question the Italians laugh when tourists order milk based coffee after lunch?
    and how do the Italian women eat such heavy meals (i.e the full course of antipasti, primi, secondi, dolce) and still stay so slim!

    Have fun! and write and post more photos!
