We're in the middle of summer now, so it seems like the perfect time to look back at my amazing trip and share some of my favourite memories with you.

I'm writing this blog post from le centre de la ville de Nice, in France. C'est magnifique! I still can't believe I'm actually here. Seriously. I'm in love with this city. There's no so much chaos as in Rome and the people I've met so far are really lovely and kind. Do I need to mention the sea? It is très, très beau and that's why I call it mon paradis bleu. I always feel so calm and relaxed when I go to the beach. I feel like I'm breathing again.

Tomorrow I'll be leaving for Nice. Yes, it's France the top-secret destination I'll be visiting this month for the very first time. Gustavo was the only one who guessed it, but I want to thank everyone who took the time to leave a comment: Natalie, Melissa, Frank, Lindsay and Isabella. I really appreciate it. I do know why you guys were thinking about the United States or England. I show my love for English speaking countries at every given opportunity. However, I couldn't plan a trip to the States in such a short period of time so I picked France, since I'm currently learning la langue de l'amour and I've always wanted to visit la Cote D'Azur.

Summer is here. The temperatures are already pretty high in Rome. The sun always shines and lights my way when I go out. I love the feeling of sunrays on my skin. I love the smell of flowers all around me. Rome is as magnificent as ever, but it’s even nicer to see the Spanish Steps covered with colourful and bright flowers. They give that extra special touch to the square. … [Read more...] about Summer plans – Where will I be heading to?
I was inspired to write this post by the experience of a Canadian actress, Lisa Ray. She recently took a trip to Italy and fell completely in love with the country. It is always exciting to see someone opens his or her heart to new people, new places, new cultures. That's what she did. She embraced the Italian lifestyle fully and completely. She left a piece of herself in every city she visited: Rome, Capri, Pisa, Florence, Venice and so on. It is pretty clear that she enjoyed la dolce vita since she always had something nice to say about every place she discovered and explored. … [Read more...] about How does one become Italian? Is it a matter of citizenship or just a state of mind?
