By now you probably noticed that I often mention one Italian city in particular. It’s probably because I lived there for more than a year and during that time I learned to love Italy. Do you know what city I mean?
Today I read an article, “Why no one goes to Naples” by Beppe Severgnini who addressed why only 13% of the annual tourists who visit Italy go to the south of the country. It’s interesting, because even I have been tons of times in Italy, but never really considered going to the south. First I thought maybe it’s because of the distance, but then I read that “German airports sent 223 flights to Spain’s Balearic Islands in one week last summer, and only 17 to southern Italy.” So what’s the reason for the lack of tourism?
Next week I will have the chance to be in Milan for the second time, and that’s a good thing. The first time I went it was January and all I can say is, that I was happy to leave. Nothing dramatic happened, except that the weather was awful. I heard that winter in Milan isn’t too pleasant, but after all I thought it’s still Italy, can’t be too bad. The first afternoon was fine, blue sky, I went on top of the cathedral it was beautiful. The second day it was snowing all day, but it wasn’t the nice fluffy snow, it was muddy snow. Nevertheless, I am willing to give Milan a second chance.
49 days left until the first day of summer. June 21st can’t come soon enough, because I am convinced I already have a vitamin D deficiency. At this moment I still don’t know where I will be spending summer, but in the meantime I can start planning what I will need when the day comes. The fact that I already saw sunscreen creams in the supermarket makes me thing that it’s acceptable and not too early.
Preparing for summer cheers me up especially today, since I am going insane trying to transfer my current blog from Weebly to WordPress. It’s my fault that I am sweating like a monkey, I am too stubborn to read any kind of instructions that don’t get to the point within 60 seconds. In case I fail to transfer my blog, I already have a plan B, which is to post everything from now on in both blogs.
Back to summer planning, the more pleasant part of the day. Here are some of my summer favorites.
Straw tote and espadrilles!
