Anytime we travel, we always make it a top priority to find the best places to enjoy a long, nice breakfast. When we are at home, we are mostly rushing outside the door in the morning, but sometimes during the weekends we try to find time to make and enjoy a big brunch at home.This is why we decided to combine these two things and prepare two american inspired breakfasts in partnership with Nespresso: a LA style breakfast and a NY style breakfast.
Growing up, Andrea used to go to Positano every summer, where my family had a beach house. So, after being gone for so long (over 10 years), it was a really good feeling to go back with Francesco and show him around some of the places where I spent part of my childhood.
A couple weeks ago we headed to Florence for a nice weekend getaway, and we stayed at the beautiful Gallery Hotel Art, part of the Lungarno Collection. The hotel is located in one of the best areas of Florence, in Vicolo dell’Oro, and it’s within walking distance from all the major touristic attractions… which means we never had to take a taxi, not even once!
This year Andrea and I decided to explore more of our beautiful country: Italy. It was really tricky to choose our first destination but since it’d been a while since we were by the sea, we opted for the Italian Riviera, specifically Portofino and Cinque Terre. I was very excited to partner with Olympus for this trip especially because I got the chance to test out the new Olympus PEN-F.
We went to Washington D.C. last Summer for the first time, but unfortunately the heat was so unbearable that we barely got to explore… so when the chance came to go back to the city for our partnership with Marriott Hotels & Resorts, we were extremely excited!
When we travel we always make an extra effort when it comes to finding the right place to stay. We look for so many different things: location, great design, uniqueness… and we have to say we found all those things and much more at The London EDITION.
After being away from London for so long, we felt like this was the right time to go back. From the breathtaking sunset at Westminster Bridge to the pastel colored houses in Notting Hill to the vibrant life of Regent Street, the british capital did not disappoint.
Our #SFtoLAroadtrip starts here. San Francisco is a destination we’d been wanting to visit for so long, and getting to visit it for the first time, is one of those incredible moments we’ll remember for a lifetime.
We only spent two days in San Francisco, but we still tried to check most of the places we researched beforehand. Read below to find our guide on where to eat in the City by the Bay.
Close your eyes for a second and think about Napa County, what’s the first thing that pops up in your mind? Probably the wine, the green landscapes and sunshine. That's not exactly what we go, but it was beautiful regardless.
After a quick (very rainy) visit to Alcatraz, we got in our car and took the road on our way to Los Angeles; our first stop was Carmel. We were quite worried about driving in the rain, so we decided to take Route 101 instead of driving along the coast, which we were going to do the following day.
We had so much fun during our first week in California, but when we got to Los Angeles, that’s when we got a feeling like we never wanted to go home. In this first post you can find our opinions about Santa Monica, Venice beach, LACMA and Abbot Kinney.
Part II lets you discover more of what we did in Los Angels. From the pulsing heart of the Contemporary Art of Los Angeles, to the over the top luxury stores on Rodeo Drive to the breathtaking over-the-cliff sunsets in Malibu, this is a city where you’ll hardly get bored.
Los Angeles is such a big city, that even though we spent 5 days there we didn’t manage to check out half the places we wanted to! The ones you can find below are still to be considered are top choices for breakfast / brunch or coffee
When you visit a big city like Los Angeles, picking a hotel to stay is not an easy task… which is why we decided to stay at not one, not two, not three, but four different hotels!
San Diego was probably the biggest surprise of my trip to California.
After spending 5 days in such a big, chaotic city like L.A., a little road trip to SD was a breath of fresh hair.
