Want more Thailand travel tips?
I’ve wrapped up my three and a half weeks in Italy and will be sharing more about what to do, and what not to do, soon. But first, some photos to summarize the trip.
Though I had a few tough times and frustrating situations, I ended on a good note in Rome with lots of food, beautiful weather and a personalized Vespa ride throughout the Eternal City (with a cheesy photo to prove it!).
Though incredibly expensive and crowded, Venice is undeniably beautiful and unlike anywhere else in the world. It was interesting to catches glimpses of carnevale celebrations with all the masks and confetti.
Though pretty, there wasn’t much to do in the Cinque Terre as the trails connecting the five cities were closed along with most of the shops and restaurants.
I took advantage of eating all the foods I miss in Thailand – pasta, bread, cheese, wine and chocolate – and tried as much as I could. Food items (noodles, olive oil, balsamic vinegar!) were some of the few items I purchased to bring back.
In Florence and Siena I visited cathedrals and museums…then more museums and cathedrals while having several long lunches filled with pasta and wine.
Posts will be coming soon about everything from how to use the country’s railway system, to where to take a rooftop pasta making class in Rome and how to avoid some of my (often costly) mistakes, but if you have any specific questions about traveling in Italy, particularly solo, let me know in the comments below.
