    For lovers of coffee looking for tips - in Italy there are a few things you need to get right.

    First of all - you need to know what you want. I asked for a cafe latte with half milk. I basically got a glass of warm milk - weak and gross. I asked for an espresso to add to it. They watched with a horrified look as I poured the espresso into my latte!

    Secondly - say it loudly! My first mistake was asking for a cafe macchiato meekly amongst the noise of the morning rush hour. I ended up with an Americano. I also received rolling eyes and I am sure some Italian swear words when I said I wanted the macchiato.

    Thirdly - skull and go. Yup, more eye rolling and Italian swearing (with a bit staring from others in the cafe) when you take your little coffee (and the bonus glass of water) to sit down.

    No fear - I have been able to order coffee properly after 3 days in Italy with the compulsory cornetti!

    I have made the mistakes for you so you can thank me later 😂 cheers, Erin

    Speeding to Salerno

    October 26, 2017 in Italy

    Day started with breakfast at the hotel - surprising amount of desserty food available for breakfast (cakes etc). Coffee so good. Checked out, then headed to the Termini Station for train to Salerno.

    Got sandwiches on the way from Mercato Centrale for lunch - salami and truffle oil, and salad and truffle. Yum.

    Had nice seats for the train ride. Tried playing Star Realms on the train until it got too bumpy. Arrived in Salerno surprisingly quickly (journey only 1.45 hours) - leading to a very quick gathering of our bags and getting off the train. Sun shining and sea glistening, we're already liking this coastal city.

    Quick walk to our place. Got moved to a slightly nicer apartment next door due to painting issue in our original place (previous guests had a kid who drew on a wall). Got settled in then went to supermarket. Struggling to find cheap easy dinner to make at home. So got pizza takeaway. Was really good (cheese broccoli mushroom and eggplant - "Ortolana"). Salerno pretty at night. Also had some Tarallini (chip-like mini bagel type things?) and a sausage stuffed in a croquette wrapped in pizza dough thing. Both good.

    Day trip tomorrow!

    Chill Weekend

    October 29, 2017 in Italy

    Had two days of relaxing. Was great. Went out on Saturday night for a walk around the old town and then beach promenade. Noticed that a lot of fairy lights were being set up above the street - most likely we'll miss seeing it all lit up though which is a shame.

    Lots of people about, having an evening stroll. Spotted some people sword fighting on the promenade (they appeared to be doing proper positions and strikes which was way less hilarious than Trent and Wade's "battles"). Got a Salerno specialty - gelato in a brioche bun. Brioche bun baked fresh each day. Gelato rich and creamy. Delicious. Best to have a strong chocolate or sweet flavour to contrast with the bread. So good.

    Then strolled some more and had fried anchovies (delicious), pasta and wine for dinner. Good. Also tried an aperol spritz. Nice.

    Second night just got more takeaway. Still loving having cheap pizza. After a refreshing weekend, we're geared up for Pompeii on Monday.
