Here's what I've been up to over the past week! I like to share my favorite activities, reads, listens and anything in general that I found interesting on a weekly basis.
Cinco de Mayo
Last week, I celebrated Cinco de Mayo in Rome with margs, tacos, nachos and so many fellow Americans at one of my favorite Mexican places in the city. It's a tiny bar in Monti called Tacos and Beers where they make drinks and food all together in the front of the restaurant, but the food is good, prices low and drinks are strong. As good as the pizza is here, there's nothing like some good Mexican after a LONG while of going without.
Amalfi Coast and Cinque Terre
I've been seeing more and more content out there about the Amalfi Coast and Cinque Terre. Because these two spots are super popular right now with tourists and their busy season is coming up, it's only natural that they would be all over my Twitter, Facebook and my Bloglovin' feeds. I really liked this breakdown of the two hotspots if you're choosing which one to visit, by Walks of Italy. Georgette of Girl in Florence wrote this great piece about finding the less over-run spots in Liguria, so you can experience all of the beauty of the Cinque Terre without the insane crowds.
I've been enjoying all of the blogs I'm mentioning, but a new one for me is by Rachel from Hippie in Heels. Here's her post on 4 reasons to go to the Amalfi Coast in the off season, which mirror's a lot of Georgette's reasons for enjoying a VERY popular destination without the crazy crowds. Finally, here's a throwback to my post last fall about visiting the Amalfi Coast and how to get there. I went in late September and it was such a beautiful season there: still entirely summer but with much less people around.
As much as I love my new Nikon, my iPhone 6 is where I still take most of my photos. I find that in daylight, the pictures turn out really well and nothing can beat the convenience of it. I'm looking forward to practicing with my DSLR more, but for now, iPhone photography is where it's at.
