Italy wasn’t originally in our plans of places to visit on our little detour, but when two of our friends and their families were separately traveling to Italy to the same place, at the same time (even on the same plane!) we had to make it down there and join the party.
We took the train across Switzerland and made our way down to Milan, from there, we stopped in Isolabona to visit Maeghan’s aunt who lives there part time through out the year.
We enjoyed the hills and peace of the countryside, then made our way to the beach to meet up with our friends.
We didn’t see much of Italy (in the perspective of most people that visit) but we had a super memorable stay and felt like we were home for a week, catching up with awesome people, eating great food and drinking cheap awesome wine 😊
Baby Marianna was quickly friend with us, which was great because we had so much to catch up on!
Our first night we got to go to a food festival. It was pretty hilarious that you order the food and then pick it up from the station that is selling the food. Maeghan picked up 9 pasta dishes and the chefs thought it was funny as she tried to translate that it wasn’t all for her.
Oh and we caught up with our friends Marc-Andre and Annasara’s family that are from Italy!
Strange beer on the bottle and Sushiit. Signage that we all felt was funny. Not the best name for a sushi restaurant.
It was short but fun! Next destination is Sofia, Bulgaria, for some much needed rest, as we plan the last leg of our trip!
