There are some things in life that are just plain magical. Gelato would be one of those things —- so magical, so powerful, that I swear the heavens opened and down came gelato on a white cloud …with one of those fun mini spoons… ready to be devoured!
SUMMER BUCKET LIST 7/23: COOL OFF WITH GELATO!
If you haven’t tried gelato- pleeeaaasee add it to your *Summer Bucket List*! If you are very adventurous (you go girl), enjoy it in Italia like I am doing in this picture!
As my boyfriend and I were walking in the streets of Sorrento, we stopped at an open door where a man was making frozen drinks. When my boyfriend went to pay, he stopped and called out to me as if he had discovered a treasure trove! In many ways, he had!! It was a gelateria swarming with locals. I had to try the pistachio mixed with Toblerone in a cone! It was the creamiest and richest gelato I ever had and it certainly cooled me off that Summer night!
Hello Again! I hope you are attempting to enjoy this seemingly apocalyptic weather we are having! It was abnormally hot in Roma while I was checking things off of my bucket list. One thing is for sure, despite the heat, cover your shoulders and knees if you expect to visit religious places. Take it from the girl who was denied access because she was wearing a very sad excuse for shorts….. that girl isn’t me, of course….. 😉
SUMMER BUCKET LIST 7/2: VISIT A MUSEUM!
Your museum trip doesn’t have to be as extravagant as the Vatican Museum with its maze of sites that end at the Sistine Chapel. You should take any chance you can get to visit a museum that revolves around a subject of interest to you! I love historic art pieces and when I am in a hopeless DIY’er mood thinking about painting a room in the house, I can think of the ceiling in the picture below…… puts things into perspective, doesn’t it?!
So join me in checking this fun activity off of your list, even if you don’t get to see the Loacoon Group or chillax with an ancient Egyptian monkey god sculpture…
