Sicily

Known for its food, sunshine, volcano and the mafia, Sicily is an island you want on your bucket list. We travelled from west (Palermo) to east (Catania) by train over a couple of days. Here’s what we got up to:

Like a Roman

2017 saw me seduced by the city of Rome, twice. For all the serenity that its rich history brings, it is not a city to be underestimated. Stepping off the train for the first time was the moment I realised how hectic of a city it was. 

The Vatican

It was a long day, but one of my best. Everything I loved about Italy was waiting for me inside Vatican City. No trip to Rome is complete without a day spent here, whether you're religious or not.

Falling for Florence

It's the city I was most excited to visit and pretty much as soon as I arrived, it was my favourite. I smiled for no particular reason while strolling through the walkable city. The tell-tale sign for me that I really love a place: leaving with a longing to return.

Top 10 Reasons to Visit Italy

Here are the top 10 things I love about Italy. It encompasses everything that my 3 month stay was all about. Few places in the world will have this much to offer. Its an overload of the best kind. It also answers the mind boggling question I am sometimes asked: "Why Italy?"

Milano!

I can't say enough about Milan. Along with Johannesburg, it's my favourite city in the world; being there just makes me happy. I was lucky enough to visit twice and each time left me wanting more. This visit to Milan marked my last couple of days in Italy. I decided to split them between touristy-things and fashion.
