Italy really is as magical as we imagined.

Buongiorno! We just spent two amazing days in Genova, Italy. It was an unexpected but very welcome stop. We spent the last three weeks in Mali i Robit, Albania where we rented an apartment in a remote beach town so we could have a quite place to work. Because our next huge adventure starts in southern France, we were having a hard time finding an affordable way to get from Albania to France. Luckily because, Albania is a hop, skip, and jump away from Italy, we were able to find a reasonably priced plane ticket through one of the discount airlines. With just enough time in our schedule to enjoy Italy for a few days, we knew we couldn’t pass up a chance to taste Italian cuisine. 

And we pretty much just ate our way through Genova. 

Octopus Salad. One of Eric's favorites.

And this is what you look like when you are eating said pesto pasta - like nothing else in the world matters. It's that good.

We discovered latte macchiatos. Coffee will never be the same.

We ate gelato six times in two days. And we could have eaten more. It's better than you could ever imagine.

It's hard to say what's better, the pizza or the pasta.

Italy is really a food lovers paradise.  As you can see, we took full advantage! And we can’t wait to go back in the near future for more.

Now we are on a bus, making our way to Niece, France where we will spend one night before jumping on a train to continue on. This is the start of what we’ve been planning for the last eight months. The beginning of something huge. We are both excited and nervous. And we are ready to share what we are up. So if you are curious, join us on this Wednesday. We’ll also be sharing tips and ticks for planning a trip rooted in purpose. Sign up here, and if you can’t just us live, no worries, you’ll get a copy of the webinar when it’s over along with a guide for planning your next purposeful adventure.
