Venice has always rewarded those who are able/patient enough to navigate away from the busy crowds of the Grande Canal, San Marco, and all the identical tourists shops and trap restaurants that surround it.
After visiting Italy (solo style) back in October 2015, I never thought I would be back this quick. I remember how sad I felt as I flew out of Venice towards Dublin to start the next part of the adventure – I knew I had to go to a new country, but I also knew … More Italy Revisited
Manarola (Cinque Terre, Italy) 2015 In October, I spent 5 nights in Manarola- my favourite of the Cinque Terre.

My 3 nights in Bologna has been a great time. I’m glad I shook off some of the dullness of Milan. Starting in Turin, Italy has slowly been building towards the final crescendo (for the first leg of this trip) that will be the next 3 nights in Venice (October 22-25). I am still … More Bologna: Insiiiiiiiiide of You

Manarola: If I was a poet, or even a real writer, I’d write about you. We’ve had a good fling, but now it’s time for me to move on. I like the way your waters tease me (ohhhhhhh, stop!). I like the way you cook for me. I like the way you trick me into … More Manarola: Cinque Terre
