Cinque Terre: Vernazza Diary

I remembered the day I stepped out of the train very clearly. I walked through the city center of Vernazza feeling relaxed. Right around a corner was a port. I could hear water splashing in the background as I tip toed my way, slowly getting closer to the sound. While walking, I looked around me and I […]

Revisiting Genoa

I have a confession to make. I like Genoa. The first time I was here we landed in the downtown area and I immediately hated it. A few months later, I was invited to come back to this city and stay with friends of my significant other. Usually, I’d jump at the chance for any adventure […]

Did you know Monza had a 3-day festival that offered free hot air balloon rides this weekend? Right, I was excited too because I have never been in one and it was a perfect Sunday activity for it.

10 Corso Como, Milan

Yesterday I spent the day browsing at Corso Como 10. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been in the area before but, I never made it in this building. The shopping and dining complex has an art gallery, a book shop, design store, a small hotel and (my favorite) a rooftop garden. I can literally stay here all […]

Bologna Photo Diary

If you asked me where to go in Italy for the day base on the trips I’ve done this month, I’d say go to Bologna. From medieval towers, antique buildings to churches, shops, restaurants and/or cafes, it’s tough not to fall for this city.

Bergamo, Italy

Since the beginning of this year, it felt like school was going 100mph without any breaks. Along the way, I caught the flu leaving me with 103 degrees fever and staying in bed for days. I’m happy to say that I’m glad that’s over now. In celebrating the end of chaos, my classmates and I went […]

Santa Caterina Valfurva

Last weekend, I was invited to go to the mountains. Of course, I happily agreed even though, I didn’t know exactly where we were going….but, hey, I’m always up for an adventure.

Burano, Italy

Have you heard of Burano Island? It’s a small area that can be reached from Venice known as the “lace city”. When I was researching about Venice and things to see or do, I came across colorful images of this island and knew I had to go there.

Venice, Italy

Magical. That’s how I felt when I arrived in Venice today. Every corner seemed to be a picturesque setting that made me want to snap photos endlessly. Ok, I admit I did exactly that. I was that tourist who just couldn’t stop snapping. I mean, how could you not? Venice is beautiful.
