Napule é

Someone should apologise to my neighbours on my behalf: it has been a week I’m livening up their days with a Pino Daniele background music. He’s one of the greatest Italian song writers but I think I did exaggerate, poor neighbours. :’D

Pino for breakfast, Pino under the shower, Pino for dinner and Pino again before going to bed… it has been my obsession and it’s my weekend in Naples to blame.

Illy in Wonderland

 

And finally… here we are.

After a never-ending waiting list – we have been waiting a couple of months to get in! – we are here with a skyrocketing enthusiasm.

My ex colleagues Jessica and Francesca and I decided to give ourselves a treat, the Mad Hatter afternoon tea at the Sanderson Hotel .

Are you ready to follow me and the White Rabbit?

Magic Istanbul

Music, round of drinks and 20 degrees in January: that’s not a bad welcome at all, Istanbul!

The preconditions were not that good: terrorism alert, the related worries of our beloved ones (“be careful, don’t you have another place to fly to? two girls… usually in January the forecast says snow over there”), but in the end the welcoming could not be better.

After an awesome couple of hours flight with  Turkish airlines  – nothing to do with the return flight with BA, (British Airways) that couldn’t hold a candle to it – we arrived to the only city in the world divided by two continents.

Europe and Asia live side by side in this 15 million people metropolis, in an amazing mishmash of different cultures, sounds and scents spread in every single corner of this city.

My colourful London

I know, I know…  in London the sky is quite often grey. Pitch grey.

Since I have been living here I’ve learnt to hunt for colours everywhere, and when the Sun finally decides to come out every corner of this city reflects a different light and everything seems to be more beautiful.

Believe it or not, even in London you may find colours… Want a proof?

Milan l’e’ semper Milan

Six years have passed since I saw you last time, Milan.
It’s a short period for the natural flow of the time and it’s a long one for my life which is always changing too quickly.
I’ve been calling you Home for a while, Milan, and it’s such a weird feeling to see you again after a long time.
During these years I’ve changed a lot … and you, Milan?

My favourite London bookshops

When I walk in a bookshop I can seriously be dangerous.
It is impossible for me to get out with empty hands.
Sometimes I feel I’m addicted to “literary shopping” and since I’ve moved to London, it’s getting worse because there are so many bookshops around here.

Although I love of all them unconditionally and I still need to visit a lot of them, I would like to share with you a list of my favourite bookshops in London.
They are magical spots where I literally love to get lost in.

A perfect weekend in Dublin

Bring together two friends who, due to a relocation, haven’t seen each other lately – but each and every time they do, it’s party! – put them in a welcoming city with a rare sunshine which makes it even more beautiful and you will have the perfect weekend.

I’ve finally decided to visit Emy, a precious friend with whom I shared almost everything for a year, house included. Now she lives in Dublin, a city that was on my “compulsory places to visit” list since too long.
I couldn’t have made a better choice.
