Europe on a budget

The upcoming madness

Travel madness

Travel madness

I know the post-its are half in English, half in Portuguese. I’ve been mixing the 3 languages in my head quite often lately, and sometimes I do use them all in just one short and simple sentence. I frequently speak Italian words with a Brazilian accent when talking to Brazilian people, by assuming that these words are already part of the Portuguese dictionary. I wish… And then I go back to reality and realize that I actually forgot the ones in my mother tongue (?!). The English gets worse as I spend more energy in learning this unlearnable Italian. And this is the way I’ve been living, repeating the 3 versions of one single word in my head, for every single thing I’m about to say. I will go crazy! Never mind.

Crazy is actually what I’m about to do in one week. The post-its show the places I will be travelling to soon – and just before you ask, I can answer: No, I have no clue how I will manage to be in such different places like US, Finland and Greece in a period of only 20 days. Madness.

Usually I don’t write about my travel plans (usually I don’t write in this blog, actually), but I had the urge to share it this time. It works almost like a beg for help, a cry for compassion, a request for tips. So if you, someone from your family, your neighbor or that person walking just outside your door right now have some sort of useful information to give me, I would be smiling from ear to ear :) (I’m exaggeratedly joking, but it would be nice to share some things with you!).

A summary of the upcoming madness:

  • 2nd till 5th Aug: New Orleans (US)
  • 6th till 11th Aug: New York (US)
  • 14th till 16th Aug: Helsinki (Finland)
  • 17th till 19th Aug: Crete (Greece)
  • 20th till 22nd Aug: Santorini (Greece)
  • 23rd till 24th Aug: Athens (Greece)

 

Have you been to any of these places? What not to lose? What to avoid?

Yes, I like to repeat myself. I think it’s the third time I talk about it in this blog (see the other post here), but the Tonnarelli Cacio & Pepe from Il Duca is really something from heaven. Once in Rome, this should be always the number 1 in your list – this is as good as visiting the Coliseum!

How is it possible to get tired of Italy?

You know when you have a great friend but you never find time to see her/him? Well, life’s so busy lately, work is killing me and money’s too short (and all that amount of standard excuses)… However, the feeling when you finally manage to visit this person and you both spend such an amazing day together is so good that it already means the ticket to coming back.

This is Rome. And she’s turning out to be a very good friend.

Work commitments brought me to her arms last week. It was only for a few hours – some gossips, walks and drinks together – but enough to settle down all that longing we’ve been feeling since the last time.

As usual, she was smiling.

See the other times we’ve met here and here.

Pictures taken last weekend at a quick visit to the Mirabello port in the city of La Spezia. This is one of the most beautiful ports located in the Mediterranean sea, and is located in the region of Liguria, Italy.

As usual, I haven’t shot the place itself, but its details.
