Falconara Charming House Resort

I’ve visited Sicily twice in my life, the first time was for a wonderful holiday in Taormina where I visited the Etna Vulcano, Isola Bella, the city of Catania and Gole di Alcantara, my second time I came back for the Taormina Film Festival. This 3rd time was a total change of scenery visiting the southern part of the Sicily island. I was a guest of Falconara Charming House Resort in Marina di Butera for a week of discovering Sicily through culture, food and walking. But before throwing myself to a week of discovery I has a relaxing start by just enjoying being…

Calamosca beach Sardinia

Calamosca beach As soon as I told some friends I was going to Sardinia for a weekend, everyone started sharing their holiday stories suggesting an infinite number of beaches that were a must. I was going for just 2 days in Cagliari for the Aperol Spritz party, so I was hoping for a single suggestion to have a relaxing day without having to travel for hours to reach it. Everyone had visited Sardinia, no one had seen Cagliari apart from the airport so no one could be of help. The taxi driver from the airport to the hotel was of…

M Missoni Dress in Cagliari

Maybe it wasn’t the best idea to wear heels when going to dinner in Cagliari. This happens when you just leave for a weekend and haven’t googled the place you are staying at all. Maybe I was blindsided by the fact that there is the beach in Cagliari so I though the walking would be all in horizontal. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The old town is like fortress on a hill and the streets are made of cobblestone, Add to the uncomfortable situation in walking on very thin heels the fact that this genius woman wore a very…

3 2 1 Everybody Is Welcome in Sardinia

This summer Aperol Spritz is throwing parties all over Italy bringing their distinctive orange drink to beaches and cities for everyone to enjoy. Spritz is the most loved aperitif in Italy, and I had not tried it before coming to live in Italy.  It originated from Venice, when Venice was under the Austrian Empire and is a derivative drink of the German Spritzer. To make a perfect spritz you need to mix equal parts of prosecco wine, the bitter liquor of Aperol Campari , sparkling water and a slice of orange. But if you don’t wanna deal with making a drink, you can…

Veuve Clicquot Rich Champagne Picnic

Milan is a city that goes on summer holidays like no other city. Most of the shops are closed starting from the 30th of July 30 and life resumes its course in the first days of September. Work life stops so life in general seems to stop in this hard working city. That is why June and July are the months of parties among friends, a way to see them one last time before heading to the beach. To celebrate summer, this year a threw a picnic and as a Veuve Clicquot ambassador I introduced the Veuve Clicquot Rich champagne…

Notting Hill

William: I live in Notting Hill, you live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are, my mother has trouble remembering my name. Anna: Fine. Fine. Good decision. Good decision…The fame thing isn’t real you know? And don’t forget I’m… I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her. In Notting Hill there is a travel bookstore that people seldomly visit  to go through rare travel books whose pages have become yellow with time. This is 1999 and the travel bookstore is a fictional place in the rom com movie Notting Hill. A…
