Surviving Naples, Part 3: The Art of Eating Alone

Tuesday, 14 Jul 2015 | Views [595]

So it was finally day 30. The last full day before we headed home. The trip had seemed to last an age, but also, now it seemed to be over too soon. I was so relieved to finally be getting away from my friend. The tense silences, the loneliness, the passive ... Read more >

Surviving Naples, Part 2: Eruptions

Monday, 13 Jul 2015 | Views [376]

I wish I could say this was a bad first impression of Naples, but it was a pretty accurate one. Everywhere looked like that neighbourhood. Dirty, dingy, terrifying. The only part of Naples that is clean is the metro- the central stops are decorated with ... Read more >

Surviving Naples, Part 1: Staying Alive

Sunday, 12 Jul 2015 | Views [411]

We got a bus from Bari to Naples for the sake of our wallets. I watched out the window as the golden fields grew more and more fertile and the great Vesuvius grew closer and more imposing. Our first view of Naples was a city of skyscrapers, construction ... Read more >

Living La Vita Roma: Part 3

Saturday, 4 Jul 2015 | Views [236]

Our last full day in Rome I decided to bridge the gap that had been forming between us and organise that we spend the whole day together. We would wake up early, like 6am early, in order to get into St Peter’s Basilica before the queues formed ... Read more >

The next day we were so hot we spent most of it just shut up in the apartment, trying to keep the cool air in. There was a TV with a DVD player in the main bedroom and we searched for something to watch. But all they had were tourism DVDs. I looked through ... Read more >

Living La Vita Roma: Part 1

Monday, 29 Jun 2015 | Views [344]

We had 5 whole days in Rome, which for me is a long time in one place. We had a lot planned and we got a lot done, but we learnt quickly we had to adapt to survive in this place. The sun is hot and the place is busy and hard to navigate. And I had to ... Read more >

From Dream to Reality

Sunday, 14 Jun 2015 | Views [322]

I had been planning this trip since I was a little girl, sitting in my great grandmother’s dining room, the smell of simmering meatballs and ragù on the stove and her thick, sometimes indecipherable, accent flowing through the air, painting ... Read more >
