Pristina, Kosovo: Updated

IMG_0358

Pristina is all about its restaurants and bars – as, sadly to admit, there isn’t too much else to do in the city. Having lived in Pristina all summer I’ve got some new jems to share. Also things in this city are constantly closing and opening for this and that so an occasional update is completely necessary.

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.

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.

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.

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”

Florence, Italy

IMG_9855

After a day in Rome all to myself, I headed to the Termini and hopped on a train to Florence to meet a close mate from our grad school days in London. Both having studied abroad in Italy during our undergrads, we’d done our fair shares of meandering from northern to southern Italy. I hadn’t been to Florence since 2008 so was quite excited to have a refresher. Here’s what I’ve gotten up to in Florence over the years…
