It only goes to show that not everything will go as planned when one travels. Always, always be prepared for whatever happens. Sticking to the planned out itinerary is good but what if something comes up? Like, let’s say, the Gelato Museum you planned on visiting that day just closed for the season. Yeah, do some thorough research but also be flexible and roll with the punches.
After our jam-packed and super warm day in Venice, we decided to have a chill day back in Bologna, so, we decided to just go to the city center and see what it had to offer… our stomachs! Because that plan to visit the Gelato Museum didn’t push through, we went where we could and stuffed our faces. Fun times! Pasta, granita and, yes, gelato!
Happy 2017, world! It’s the new year and I still haven’t finished posting about our trip to Europe. Slow and steady, huh? Here’s the next part ofour trip! (kinda chanelling Dora the Explorer there LOL)
On the last leg of our European trip, we spent most of our days roaming around the beautiful country that is Italy. If there’s one thing that is a must-do in Italy, it’s FOOD! And hence, that was our first stop. We went straight to Bologna – the largest city in Emilia-Romagna Region which is best know for their, wait for it, FOOD!
We decided to make Bologna our home base and travel from there to other cities, instead of hotel hopping. So, we secured an Airbnb and got to exploring! It was pretty convenient as well since the city of Bologna was in the middle of a few key cities that are a must-see when in Italy. Posts on those cities, soon.
Here are a few (more like a lot of!) snaps of our in Bologna.
When we checked in at our airbnb, it was already night time. What better way to kick start our days in Italy than with food? We stopped by the restaurant at the corner, Le Rosa. We kept on going back to the little ristorante for the next few days. It was reasonably priced and the food was very good. Suffice to say, we were happy!
On our first day, we decided to go on a walking tour of the city, with food tasting, of course! We booked a walking tour with a local. What better way to get to know the place than to explore on your own two feet with the people who know it best?
That was Day 1 in Italy! More posts to come soon-ish! *fingers crossed*
