So for us, two weeks touring Emilia Romagna, eating pasta and drinking wine, was enough to make me happy. If we were inspired by Anthony Bourdain in Emilia Romagna, that would be enough. I did not need to recreate his experience.

Santarcangelo di Romagna is definitely one of my favorite towns in the Rimini area, south of the Emilia Romagna region. Standing on a gentle hill called Colle Giove, it is a real little gem, peaceful and lively at the same time, and could be the perfect destination for all travelers.

Vor ziemlich exakt zwei Jahren hat’s „bumm“ gemacht. Mailand hat mich vom Hocker gehauen. Im positiven Sinn. Die Stadt, von der in meinem Kopf ein Gespinst aus zu viel Autoabgasen und drängenden Menschenmassen existierte, entpuppte sich als kunterbunter Schmetterling.

If Bologna were to be defined by its food specialties, these would be homemade pasta and mortadella. And while Bologna is beautiful and well worth spending a few days, besides the beautiful architecture and lively atmosphere, food is certainly one of the main attractions.

There comes a time in a girl’s life when her needs must be met. When it’s no longer enough to simply enjoy the gelato of Italy. When she must take the plunge, take the berries into her own hands and …yes, make the gelato herself.

Har du noen gang tenkt på hvordan Gelato, eller italiensk iskrem, lages? Eller hva som gjør at Gelato stiller i en helt annen klasse enn vanlig iskrem både når det gjelder smak, konsistens og lidenskap?

Milano! That’s where we recently went, because it was… wait for it… Fashion week! Okay, so that’s not at all the reason we went. But although we were told that all through the year Milan is full of fashionable folk (I don’t doubt that – hey, it’s Italy!), we saw some pretty far out people. Actually, some of them might have been aliens. Am I still talking about fashion? So sorry! Let’s get down and dirty with Milan!

On m’avait dit que Milan avait beaucoup de tags et street art à offrir, mais j’ai été surprise parce qu’il n’y avait pas beaucoup de tags, il y en avait plutôt des millions, sur chaque porte, chaque entrée, chaque fenêtre.

I’d heard of it before, but really wasn’t sure where it was located. I always assumed it was a small duchy or principality tucked away in some Alpen mountain pass.

Fundada entre 1554-1556 por Vespasiano Gonzaga como cidade ideal, foi pensada sobretudo como uma fortaleza, completamente cercada pelas muralhas que até hoje se atravessam para entrar e que com certeza naquela época representavam um dos baluartes mais equipados da Lombardia de domínio espanhol.
