Capri is located in the Gulf of Naples and the western part of the Amalfi Coast. A beautiful island in Italy which can only be reached by boat. The island boasts a natural rugged landscape and blue waters that attract thousands of tourists from all over the world.

Marathon in Siena, Italy

Trail Running in Tuscany

Castelnuovo Berardenga, a town in the province of Siena. This is located in the corner of Chianti, not too far from Florence and Siena. 

I wanted to see the neighboring city of Central Italy in a different non-tourist kind of way. What do you expect I found a marathon running on our very last day in Siena. It's been a while since I did a trail run so I was very thrilled and even more hype as we will be running in the vineyards of Italy. Let's go!

Wine Tour in Chianti, Italy

The Vineyards of Tuscany 

I started my love of wine tours in Niagara Falls, Canada. My first part-time job when I was in school there was working at this very famous coffee chain in the country. I didn't realize how far it was from my place when they called me for an interview. The small bus that took me to this certain town only runs in specific hours, and the ride takes me to endless vineyards and wineries. I begin to wonder if I should take the job considering the distance but I can't say no to the beautiful scenery to work. It only took me months to quit the job which is very unfortunate, thou it leads to great interest in wines. My husband who was my suitor back then went for our first wine tour for our very first date. A memorable experience that marks our love for wine tasting and has even open doors to try out beer tours. And here we are in Italy.. and I'm wondering what to do?

Italian's love wine like its water made from heaven with more flavor - can't blame them and I totally agree with that! What's more compelling to do in Siena than a wine tour itself from the motherland of the oldest winemakers in the world. Let's go!

Hot Air Balloon Ride in Siena, Italy

Dream come true!

There's something about the sky that makes me want to have the ability to fly. The vast horizon and the clear blue sky is a playground for the mind and soul. I've done a few flying adventures in my life and getting on a hot air balloon ride is on my bucketlist. I've almost done one in Canada with my husband but it was canceled due to bad weather, not just once but twice.

It all happened for a reason as we're meant to fly in Italy overlooking the grandeur vineyards in the metropolitan city of Florence called San Casciano in Val di Pesa. Let's go!

What to do in Siena, Italy

The Medieval City of Tuscany, Italy

Italy is the land of everything nice whether its the food, the landscape, the people, even the culture and tradition. I love this country. After visiting the busy streets of Paris we intentionally decided to hit the mountains in Italy. We wanted a balance for our Europe trip from cityscape to landscape and lastly hitting a small town for some seascape.

Siena was on my top list, a medieval town in Central Italy. A few hours away from Florence the main capital of the country. The town is popular for hosting the annual horse race, wine tours and has great selections of balsamic vinegar and olive oils. Let's go!

Train from Paris to Italy

How to get to Siena from Paris 

What fascinates me about Europe is the possibility of seeing another country just by taking the train.  Every direction can lead you to different lands.  For the first part of this trip, we enjoyed the bustling city lights and chaos of Paris.  This time around, we're heading to the mountains and wineries of Italy. 

Italy has always been on my list.  I've always dreamed of studying art in Florence.  I imagined myself painting alongside the city's bridges, or driving on the town's beach outskirts, or sitting on top of a hill with my paintbrushes and a glass of wine... Let's go!

Hidden Gems of Paris

Art and Food Experience

I've always imagined myself walking around Paris with gelato on hand or sitting in a cafe having coffee overlooking the Eiffel tower. Wishes do come true.  If you imagine something again and again, sooner or later it will materialize in front of you and all you have to do is believe. 

We wanted something different for Paris, not just the normal tourist sites attractions.  I knew exactly what we needed to do.  I've always wanted to study art and I thought to myself why not explore that possibility in France.  Let's go!
