That right folks, Capri is in fact fini…well, our time there is anyway. Everytime we get the chance to visit the island, my parents just cannot help but quit eand sing Hervé Vilard’s ’65 classic, so considering the location of today’s #OOTD photos, the post’s title came as a no brainer. Capri is one of those rare magical places that really transports you to the glamour of yesteryear, and make you feel like you are living in the movies. It’s beauty is pretty obvious, but its feel and kind people is truly what keeps us coming back from year to year. I have no doubt we will continue to return in the Summers until we have kids of our own, and perhaps they will carry the tradition with their families one day… I know it may sound like I’m getting ahead of myself, but this place really is that special. Also this particular summer our visit came at just the right time.
After spending the previous few weeks, adventuring around Europe…and documenting what felt like every second of it, it was time to put down the camera (or try to anyway) for some TLC and Capri was the most picturesque place to do it. We spent every single day at La Fontelina eating the best food on the island, drinking wine, and just sitting there and reading. May sound boring to some, but for us it was magical. Those of you who follow me on Instagram, also know the view and sunsets weren’t to shabby either. This portion of the trip was my favourite, and I’m so happy I was able to share a little bit of it with you all today. Safe to say I recommend you travel to Capri if ever the opportunity arises…you’ll see…it isn’t fini at all. Sorry Hervé.

…and a month later here I am! Now THAT was a hell of a trip. To those of you who don’t follow our shenanigans on Instagram, we spent the last month cruising with the familia, and traveling to our favourite spots around Europe. I can’t believe how much time has gone by, and how many incredible memories we’ve made, yet it all went by so fast. Took a little break from posting on the blog to try to enjoy the little moments, but I’m so glad to be back to tell you all about it, and relive it for myself…especially the eating portions of the journey. Don’t get me wrong, family is great and all, but have you had spaghetti cacio e pepe in Roma?…now that first bite is the kind of vacation memory I strive to continue making for the rest of my days. Also Bonci Pizza pictured below…I recommend you don’t look at those pictures on an empty stomach.
As much as I’d like to wax poetic about my love for bucatini amatriciana all day, I should probably tell you where we adventured during the course of this month long binge eating sesh. We had the immense joy of joining my parents, brother and his family in Barcelona right in time to celebrate my birthday with the whole gang. We ate, we partied, we did a sightseeing tour bus ride…it was fab. Next up was a week long cruise aboard the Symphony of the Seas, and let me tell you, we had fun. Nothing quite like being stuck in one big room with your entire clan, especially the little ones. We visited Marseille, Portofino, Naples…we ate Pizza in Naples. All of my tangents seem to lead to food…sorry. After we disembarked from the ship it was time to say goodbye to my little amigos and take my parents to Ibiza. That’s right folks, for the second year in a row I have had the immense joy of taking my parents to the EDM capital of the world. We ate, we partied, no sightseeing tour bus ride this time, but it was fab nonetheless. All jokes aside Ibiza is one of my very favourite places to travel to, and one I will most likely continue to visit until the day comes where it will be my kids’ turn to drag me along.
…and then we arrived to where these very pictures were taken, in the eternal city of Roma. Where…you guessed it, We ate, we ate, and we ate. No partying or tour bus necessary to have a fab time here let me tell you. Trip doesn’t end there, but because I have to save some good stuff for the next one, I’ll keep the end of our journey spoiler free. Until then, here are some memories we made…you guessed it, eating. Enjoy!
