For the amazing few who read this blog, I will disappoint and say that I will not be here for the next month. I’m living the dream and spending some time in Italy, doing some sun bathing in Tuscany, and then studying in Rome. It will be hot, most of the time at least, and it will be a chance for me to get my culture on. If you don’t know much about me, I am a history (and French) student, and am avid pursuer of all things tourist and enlightening, having ideals of me reigning a museum in the future. I am not a culture vulture who visits places just for the novelty of saying “I went there”. I have a sincere passion for the past and I love living in the UK which has such a rich heritage, but Italy also has an amazing story, and luckily my enthusiasm for art and history makes me and my equally enthusiastic dad the perfect guide for my poor mother, sister and her boyfriend.

What is also a really good part of my trip is that I get to be in the land of food. Yes, that is also what is so great about Italy. I foresee a vast usage (and purchase) of these….

and these…

I can picture the whole aisle dedicated to this in all shapes and sizes….

…And it will taste amazing. These will also be delicious, and very cheap…

And we can stock up on specialities…

However, Italy may be amazing at food. But I do not have high hopes for certain things…

I’m a massive dairy fan, and I’m afraid that even though Italy does good cheese, I can only count these on one hand…if I had 3 fingers removed…Luckily they import. And in the past year porridge and I have a developed a unbreakable bond…

…I’m a bit apprehensive of the sort of oats that the Italians sell…

I hope you all have an amazing August. I hope to! Happy Summer!

  1. I hope you have a great trip!!! What a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to go to Europe (specifically Italy and Greece). Come back to us soon! 🙂 Can’t wait to hear all about it…especially the food.
