Exploring Madrid

Hola readers! It is currently 9am and we’re chilling in bed at the hotel room after another late night. The Spanish do things at strange times. They eat 7 meals a day and the sun doesn’t set until 10pm so nobody sleeps until like midnight. It’s another world. We started our day with breakfast at […]

First day in Spain

Buenos Días! We are currently sitting down to breakfast at our hotel in Spain. Yesterday was a very long day. We had our alarms set for 4:30am and you never get a good sleep when you have an early alarm set out of fear of oversleeping. We had to make it to Termini station to […]

Final day in Italy

Buongiorno readers! It is 6:30am and we are sitting in the airport (our most hated of places) waiting to board our slight to Spain. Yesterday was our last day in Italy. We started the day off with a nice sleep in until about 8. We have had so many days where we have had to […]

Rest day in Rome

Ciao from Rome! It’s currently 8:45pm and we’ve been chilling at our hostel pretty much all day. We really needed to recharge after a whirlwind trip around Italy before we head to Spain. This morning we had a huge sleep in. I (Aimee) was feeling pretty rotten after last night’s festivities so we skipped breakfast […]

Last day of Contiki in Rome

Buongiorno readers! It is currently 10am and we are just waking up. It is nice to get a sleep in. We are not on Contiki any more, which is bittersweet. It is sad because we will miss everyone, but we are finally able to relax. We started the day with a relatively late wake up […]

All roads lead back to Rome

Buongiorno readers! It is currently about 2:42pm in Roma. This blog is coming up awfully late because we have been super busy today (also had a slight sleep in!). Yesterday wasn’t the biggest day, but it was definitely one of the best days. We started the day off in our shitty hotel near Cinque Terre […]

Cinque Terre

Buongiorno from Pisa. It is currently 10:30am and we are on our way back to Rome. Yesterday was a pretty relaxed day in the postcard-esque Cinque Terre. The day started waking up in Milan. We decided to skip breakfast for a bit of extra sleep because we didn’t get home until late last night. We […]

Lake Garda + Milan

Buongiorno! It’s 9am and we’re on the road to Cinque Terre. We weren’t expecting to have such a big day yesterday but we did so much again. We had the classic breakfast again this morning – so many croissants! I (Aimee) couldn’t do this sweet breakfast for the rest of my life. When there’s bacon […]

Full day in Venice

Salute! It is currently 1pm and we are on the bus travelling to Milan. Yesterday was a massive day. The day started with a decent wake up at 8am with us catching the boat into Venice. The thing about Venice is that it is being destroyed by mass tourism. It is a big port for […]

Verona + Venice

Buongiorno! It is currently 7:30am and we are in the hotel in Venice. It is a nice hotel again with working air conditioning and good wi-fi. These things make a difference. Yesterday was huge. We left the hotel early, but not before ducking to the little cafe next door to the hotel and grabbing a […]
