After hitting the beach, I always looked forward to having my special aperitivo with E. With a place like Sardegna, it would be a pity not to savor its beauty for as long as I could. And with a drink or two, it was perfect!


One place we enjoyed going to was the Sea Lou...

There is nothing about this haven that I do not adore. Everything is just perfect. And that is no exaggeration.

When E told me about this lovely place that he frequented in Sardegna when he was a kid, I thought it would just be another "one of those". But when he said t...

Italia is my happy place with E.


I've always felt a special connection with the place, and what a lovely coincidence that he is from there.


What's not to love anyway? Italy bursts of beautiful scenery, amazing beaches, magnificent structures, the best (!!!) food in the...

Every trip I take, I always send postcards to loved ones. Yes, am pretty old school that way.


Through this I get to share the beautiful images and places am blessed to see.


Can't really send you good ol' postcards. So I hope, you will enjoy and daydream with me through...

A day spent in one of the grandest villas by Lago di Como could not have been lovelier.

La dolce vita!

Only a cartwheel away from our holiday flat, Villa Carlotta is a beautiful and popular attraction in Tremezzo. It was built in 1690 for the Milanese marquis Giorgio Cle...

A friend gave me a list of cool places to check out in Milan, but could only do one - as we only had less than five hours. 


It was really a no brainer though with 10 Corso Como.

Asked where I wanted to go on my first Italian holiday, without a blink, I said Lago di Como.


I have always been in awe of the place. I think it is one of the most beautiful destinations. Or at least that is my story.


Truth is, I just wanted to see George Clooney! Haha...

When our first restaurant choice for lunch in Como was closed, we decided to just go to the main town and explore. 


We ended up eating in Le Colonne, which is right in the middle of all the action. 

Near the lake, shops and the cathedral.


E always tells me that it is al...

My day trip to Bellagio ended on a wonderful note - with a stroll in the garden and under the trees of Villa Melzi.


A short walk from the town centre, this neo-classical villa was built in 1808-1810. Although the villa is not opened to visitors, we still enjoyed the af...

Next to Duomo di Milano is the equally stunning Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.


Designed in 1861, and built by Giuseppe Mengoni until 1877, it is named after Italy's first king Vittorio Emanuele II. Today, the Galleria is one of the world's oldest shopping malls.


I was...
