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.
What’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!
