    Home exchange, house #7

    August 31, 2016 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    It's our first exchange in Italy and our last on this roadtrip. It's also our first exchange where we're not completely alone in the house. As it turned out, that's not such a bad thing - Anne and Nicola greeted us with home made pizza, fresh vegetables from the garden and tuscan wine (Grazie!). What a treat! Even though there are some lingo barriers, we understand each other just fine :) We had a really long drive and a bit of a headache yesterday, so today we slept in(we finally got a little bigger bed, so that helped aswell) and chilled by the lake in the afternoon. We're excited to discover some more of tuscany tomorrow.Read more

    Week #5

    September 1, 2016 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    We're on a roll. 5 weeks! Together, in a car. And we didn't killed each other. Yep, must be true love 😉 Jokes aside, we expirienced so much already that some of the places we visited seems like ancient history. Luckily we keep it all here on our blog ☺

    Roads we travelled were amazing, breath taking, sometimes spiral and difficult, but all together made our roadtrip fun.

    Our last stop, under the Tuscan sun, just began and we're hungry for more(italian food in particulary)! Bring it on, Italy!

    Vicchio village fest

    September 1, 2016 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    On our way back from the beach(it felt so beachy by the lake) we decided to stop for dinner in local restaurant, so our first pick was most-rated-tripadvisor restaurant/store, which sells local goods such as olive oil, pasta, prosciutto, tartufata and cheese. The dinner was sadly closed, but at least we got the beautiful view over Vecchio bridge.

    We said we'll try our luck in the center of town and boy we hit the jackpot. It's apparently the beginning of local festival with music and everything! Sort of farm market meets fair kinda vibe. There were calves in a barn, pigeons in a cage, old tractor machines displayed and down the street was some sort of garage sale going on, where kids were selling their old toys and clothes.

    Ok, we were going by pretty fast until we discovered our place, food court. And the best of all, they served only local products! What a treat. When our stomachs were happy, we strolled around a while longer(as it turned out this fair is not small, at all) and ofcourse we had to buy ourselves a little treat-local salami and sheep cheese. Victory!
