South Tyrol: Day 4

Wait! I didn’t finish telling you about Day 3! We left the peace and quiet of the countryside and headed for Bolzano, the capital of South Tyrol. City life here, however, isn’t what you’d expect. A quaint town with an outstanding quality of life, ranked highly amongst all of Italy, with a combination of youthfulness from […]

South Tyrol: Day 2

There’s an energising effect about fresh mountain air that awakens the soul. A morning spent on the balcony, filling your lungs whilst taking in the view of vast mountains is more stimulating than any cup of coffee. After a quick fill of the extensive offering of the breakfast bar, including goats milk yoghurts, mountain cheese, […]

This is how I feel […]

The Tommy Tucker

I’m not a pub kinda girl. I know it’s terribly un-English of me to not yearn for weekend roasts and post-work pints in the sticky sweet atmosphere overflowing with chattering murmur, interrupted by outbursts of laughter and clinking glasses. And yes, I know it’s terribly un-American to not be enchanted by the familiar interiors, charming quirks and stories told […]
