Favourite Roman Rooftops

IMG_9929

Rome is overrun with tourist nearly all year long and summer is particularly dreadful, so sometimes you just need to escape the crowds and enjoy the beauty of Rome from above. When I just can’t take the throngs of tourists any longer I ascend to these little rooftop havens ūüôā

Double Trouble: Two Roman Gelaterias

IMG_9762

Like London and its seemingly infinite number of pubs, Rome is chalk full of gelaterias. Countless really. And I’m sure there are at least 50 establishments people claim as¬†the best gelateria in Rome.¬†I won’t pretend to know, with certainty, the absolute best gelateria in Rome, but the following two are ones I always return to.

A First-Timers Guide to Rome, Italy

IMG_7879After doing a quick stop in Rome this week,  I thought it was about time I wrote about Rome as a whole. As a first-timer to Rome you have an obscene amount to see and do and though it may seem daunting you really ought to give it your best. It is a vibrant city with amazing architecture, intriguing history, warm colours, decadent cuisine, and a bustling night life.

The Marvelous Madness that is Marrakech, Morocco

Morocco was always on my bucket list, but when I came across a photo of this decadent¬†hostel (with a pool, hello) I just knew I had to go. That’s how much I love a good hostel. So, I enlisted my Euro travel buddy and after a short visit to her family in Spain we hopped on a plane to Marrakech. We paid a whopping $12 for a our flight. So…ya know, that was a stretch of the pocket book.

Favourite Proper London Pubs

I’ve been asked at least 1,390,034 times just¬†why I LOVE London so much and part of that answer is: the pub culture. I am the ultimate sucker for a traditional cosy pub replete with wood-paneled walls, open fire places, and stacks on stacks of board games. There are more amazing pubs in London than one could ever possibly discover, but these were my regular haunts whilst living in London.

Enoteca Cul de Sac, Rome, Italy

1973248_10102457939007381_4406726231509612917_o

Yup, this restaurant gets its own post. It is not an exaggeration or overstatement when I say that Enoteca Cul de Sac is my favourite restaurant in the world (thus far). I have specifically made trips to Rome just to eat lunch and dinner here and then carry on with my travels. I have dreams about this place. Whenever I am in Rome, I eat here every day and the people I drag with me do not mind in the slightest. Over the past eight years I have probably sent over 40 people to this restaurant, and every single one reports back that they absolutely loved it and also went multiple times over their stay in Rome.

Sarajevo (& Mostar), Bosnia and Herzegovina

IMG_0717

This past weekend’s adventure…I barely know where to begin it was so intense, action-packed, and at times life threatening. Okay, I suppose I’ll start off by stating that Sarajevo is, without a doubt, my favourite Balkan city. It is absolutely beautiful and compared to Pristina…it’s an actual real city (though to be fair to Pristina, it was not originally built to be a capital city).

Eateries in Laguna Beach, California

IMG_8496

I’m missing home a bit – mostly the food (veggie-friendly Kosovo cuisine is rather redundant), but also, ya know…my family and beach too so thought I’d chit chat about home. Though Laguna Beach is a tiny little town, it is chalk full of amazing spots to grab a bite or a drink. These are my more frequented spots. Continue reading “Eateries in Laguna Beach, California”

Lake Ohrid, Macedonia

IMG_0591

Whilst living in Pristina, weekends away are nearly compulsory. Don’t get me wrong, Pristina is grand…there just isn’t a whole lot to do if you’re around at every weekend. Additionally, as someone hailing from a littoral zone, I need regular body-of-water fixes. So this weekend’s destination was Lake Ohrid in eastern Macedonia.
