An Ode to Gelato: Top 5

There is nothing like dessert cravings on a beautifully sunny afternoon. I know what you’re thinking. Hasn’t she learned her lesson from her last sweet treats craving? I hear you loud and clear. To answer your question … I did. I have taken to over emphasizing [to every establishment] my known allergens. Most understand, and… Continue reading An Ode to Gelato: Top 5

Riccione: A Touristic Paradise

Whenever I think that I've had my "best city yet" moment another one comes along to surprise me. I started off the week by visiting Riccione. Though the day was hardly perfect beach weather, I saw a snippet of what the saying, "life's a beach," meant on this side of Italy. Riccione is by far… Continue reading Riccione: A Touristic Paradise

Roaming in Ascoli Piceno: Pinacoteca Civica di Ascoli Piceno

With my face primarily back to what I was used to seeing in front of the mirror (see Roaming with Allergies ), I took advantage of the amazing weather to go and explore Ascoli Piceno. Thankfully the travel to Ascoli Piceno was less hazardous than my attempts to visit Fano and Senigallia. Whilst out there, I was able to… Continue reading Roaming in Ascoli Piceno: Pinacoteca Civica di Ascoli Piceno

Roaming with Allergies

Currently I resemble, what I imagine to be, a newborn alien. Or as my younger brother would say: Sam Cassell. If you are fortunate to have never had an allergic reaction in your life then kudos to you. Like many, I walk around in fear that a meal I was about to devour could end… Continue reading Roaming with Allergies

Battle of the Fish & Chips, Round 2: Punch & Judy.

Let me tell you guys. I was about to send this post to the trash bin. This is due to the fact that I could not, for the life of me, remember the name of this place. Hence, in my previous post (Battle of the Fish & Chips, Round 1: Applebee’s Fish.) I neglected to… Continue reading Battle of the Fish & Chips, Round 2: Punch & Judy.

Battle of the Fish & Chips, Round 1: Applebee’s Fish.

When one thinks of essential British dishes the first meal that comes to mind is fish & chips. There was no way I was travelling all the way to London and not have at least a whiff of this meal. I decided that while in Europe, I would live a pescatarian life. I need to go… Continue reading Battle of the Fish & Chips, Round 1: Applebee’s Fish.

Love Tastes Like

Love tastes like a snowflake gently landing on soft lips. Like the kiss shared in the midst of a thunderstorm. Pineapple flavored tongues exploring every crevice. Love is the taste of two souls interweaving for the first time.

Pip,pip. Cheerio!

My week in Londontown was amazing. First of all, my Mother was there -- to celebrate her birthday (and I'd like to think because she really missed her only daughter). Secondly, my Auntie D, Uncle E and Cousin S were extremely accommodating and hospitable. I couldn't have asked for a better time spent! It felt… Continue reading Pip,pip. Cheerio!
