Ciao Amici! (hello friends)

Hello from Italy!

My husband has a team of colleagues in Italy – and often travels here for work. So… I came along this time! While he is busy working during the day (Italians work long days!) I have been out exploring and eating amazing food!

At the moment, I am sitting an outdoor café enjoying amazing pizza, Proseco and an Americano coffee!
