How Italy feels, September 20

Isn’t it amazing? On the last day of August, we had a full rainy day, and the temperature dropped below 20 degrees in Rome! Mother Nature is telling us, “if you haven’t enjoyed much this summer, be hurry because I’m going to change the season soon.”

Earlier last month, we had a quick trip to London for Luigi’s business and some vacation. We don’t really do vacation like most of the Italians, however, every July and August, we often travel to Asia and stay in the countryside (Montefiascone) for a few weeks. This year is different, of course. So, I am super happy that we had this little trip to London city center, where we also met our friends.

Sunset in London, but not with Big Ben
the best way to know how italy feels is not the big cities but the raw countryside of Italy
The stunning and unexpected sunset in the countryside of Italy (Montefiascone and Viterbo) with some impressive horse shit smell, very raw life!

When you cannot travel abroad or even other regions, explore your own city. Yes, that’s what I have done in August. Hanging out for museums, Aperitivo, and dinners with friends in Trastevere, Prati, Testaccio, and Monti. Those are all amazing neighborhoods in Rome with modern boutiques and bistros without losing its Roman origin with those long-lasting restaurants and bars surviving many crises. I’m eager to share with you more about those lovely but very different Rome neighborhoods. Especially you are a foodie, I have a whole category of where to eat in Rome for you.

Talking about Montefiascone, I have to share that specific moment with you! I got it when we stayed just for a few nights in Montefiascone after our London trip. I was in the car with Luigi’s parents on our way back from a big grocery shopping. Witnessing this stunning sunset, I couldn’t hold myself, but was too excited to record the moment, while I realized how strong the horse shit smelled at that moment, afterwards. If you ask me how Italy feels? This is – Part of.

Talking about museums, my recent visit to Castel Sant’Angelo was like the Instagram caption, no caption needed. With my friend, we wandered in this ghost-like castle (it was a tomb first), admired the amazing architecture which creates a painting-like view of Rome and the Vatican, and enjoyed the best late-summer sunset below Sant Angelo. The only pity thing is, the museum bar with a view of San Peter Basilica was closed due to COVID-19. Next time!

The last weekend of August, finally, I visited Lago Albano, which is exactly below Castel Gandolfo. My dear friends, when you visit Rome and if you have a relaxed schedule, make a half-day or even a full day there. The multiple layers of blue held by the green hills and little colorful houses are breath-taking. That must be “a sea”?

Spending a day on the lake near Rome is the best way to know how Italy feels in the summer

I have started a few monthly topics since August. The Goods edit is where I can share with you all my favorites freely – books, skincare, beauty, style, home and I don’t know, what else.

The diary-like note of the recommended restaurants, bars, bistros is the second monthly topic. I hope you can have the best and different food experience every time you visit Rome. Here is the first edit for August, and soon I will publish the September edit.

I had a bit of on-and-off commitment to my newsletter, but I’m trying to keep you updated weekly. For the coming new month, my goal is to continue a 20/80 rule for dine-out, maybe 40/60, because my wishlist never stops growing (by itself, I mean). Museums and parks are my second goal for the month, as the weather gonna be lovely in the early autumn in Rome. I’m super excited about the end of this month because we are going back to Sicily and will explore the south! I haven’t made my travel plan, so throw all your best recommendations for me!

I never know how to stop writing when it is a personal post. So, see you next time.
