Venice, Verona, Cremona, Florence, Sardinia, Rome, Milan & Amalifi.
My first stop was Venice. I stumbled wearily out of the cab and began to wander. Making my way through bustling, winding streets over little canals, I felt my heart beat with new energy. I was entranced.
I've been thinking about how it's only natural to become so accustomed to our surroundings that they stop wooing us. It's something we slip into without trying. So easily, the mesmerizing becomes mundane.
One of the most refreshing effects of travel is the way it recalibrates our vision, expanding our sight to see ourselves and our environments with more clarity and depth.
I want to recalibrate often. I want to see through the eyes of a child, a student, an artist. There's beauty all around us and I don't want to miss any of it.
Gnocchi Recipe :)
Thank you to my host family for sharing!
Place cooked, peeled potatoes in spiralizer.
Combine potato spirals, one or two eggs, and flour as needed in a bowl. Make dough with hands.
Transfer dough to a floured surface and roll.
Slice with a sharp knife and press with a fork or small grater to shape each gnocchi.
Drop into boiling water for two minutes or so. Careful not to overlook.
Top with melted butter, cinnamon and salt. Enjoy quickly!
Hi! Welcome to my blog. Whether you stumbled upon this page through your friend’s friend’s Instagram or you’ve been following for a while, I’m glad you’re here. Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my life with you.
I write mostly about the places I visit and the people I meet. I love to write for the same reason I love to travel: because it teaches me a new way of seeing the world.
Other things I love: thrift shopping, sustainable fashion, big sunglasses, deep conversation, a good book, digital marketing, messy hair, planes, poetry, hot tea + long distance running.
This blog is about saying yes to the things that make you feel alive. It’s about rolling with the punches and embracing uncertainty because not everything will be smooth sailing. A life of adventure is full of challenges but I think it's worth it. Here's to saying yes to adventure, whatever that looks like for you.
Thank you so much for reading and experiencing this journey with me! :)
