Happy belated birthday to me and happy birthday to my blog!!! Holidaying in the Italian Riviera with family not enjoying too much the heat wave, luckily back in cold United Kingdom!

24 Aug

Hello dear readers,

I am sorry to have not written on the blog for such a long time but I was enjoying too much my holiday with my parents, relatives and cousins down in the Italian Riviera, now I am back home and I have more time to keep you updated with my realities…I am growing old, last Sunday (19th August) I turned 28…oh my!!! I had a lovely day with my husband and my family going to the beach, sunbathing, eating, drinking…drinking again and so on! I love so much that part of Italy as I said before, I spent so many summers there when I was a child that the place has so many memories for me…love it!

My husband the day after my birthday had to leave and my cousins came down in holiday to spend time with us, it was good to hang out with them. Probably 1 or 2 kilos more but it doesn’t matter, a diet always starts on Monday. I cannot believe my blog is turning 1 year old, it seems just yesterday that I have started to put down on Word my words…so glad that my readers keep on follow me and my adventures!

And I have to apologize to Askmystyle (http://askmystyle.com/) who gave me an award last week, the beautiful blogger award….I am sorry I am just doing that very slowly! Blogging gives me so many satisfactions, thanks to all!!!!

Back to where my childhood memories belong…holidaying in the heart of the Italian Riviera (Liguria)

17 Aug

When yesterday the plane touched down in Genova at the Cristoforo Colombo airport I couldn’t believe how much I missed around here, I have been coming down in holiday here every summer with my family since I was a little girl and even if other people doesn’t think nothing special of this area, well not my problem, I have grown up here summer by summer, learned to use my bicycle and my rollerblade on the promenade on the sea where the Port of Chiavari is, learned how to taste good and simple but tasty food from the Tigullio area, enjoying long walk all around town in the shopping area and on the seafront, how many memories this place holds for me!

It is great being back here after two years and I can’t wait to spend the whole week here with my husband and my family…and my birthday on Sunday! I will update as soon as I can with some pictures…enjoy your holiday wherever you are!

Friday night in Milan town but what can you do to escape from the heat wave? Italian Riviera here I come! Milan to London, London to Miami and Miami to Bahamas, just to keep myself busy!!

18 Jun

I have enjoyed so much these few days I have spent back home with my family and friends, summer has finally come in the north of Italy and you do feel the heat, a lot! Friday night I travelled to Milan on the train and underground and when I arrived at destination I was covered in sweat!

Friday night we were in Milan in the Navigli area, so cool with so many bars and restaurants and so many people around … trouble is when you wake up on Saturday morning and you see the same area of town completely empty and when you realised that is 10.30am and it’s already 28degrees (or 82.4 F) you understand that it’s time to GET OUT OF HERE!!!

The quick way to escape is to take the motorway, Genova direction and in two hours you are on the seaside, Genova, Recco, Sori, Portofino, Camogli, Chiavari, Sestri Levante….God bless Liguria and its fabulous characteristics!

I spent every single summer of my childhood here with my family, relatives and cousins, and going back there in this gorgeous little town called Sori made me fell in love again for this beautiful part of my country, I have one more kilo on today but I don’t care, how can you not eat fresh fish, trofie al pesto and the amazing Focaccia made in Liguria? You must be crazy!!! Came back last night , just packing my stuff, back to London in a few hours and off we go to Miami tomorrow morning! I missed my husband like crazy but I really enjoyed the time away as well!
