A Note to Self from Italy…

17 Comments 2092 views

Try the macarons.

Savor the cheese.

Enjoy the gelato.

Experience the pasta.

Sample the desserts.

Taste the bread.

Drink with mom!

Do it all without guilt, stress, worry or fear. You are on vacation! it is a time to celebrate, experience, enjoy and savor!

Is this not what life is all about?

I think our new mantra should be…

Enjoy life, eat well, laugh often, move much. :)

Now go to bed. You have a Venice run waiting for you tomorrow. How exciting!!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Yes! AMEN! And if you go to Napels – eat the Quatro Formaggio! 4 cheese pizza – you will NEVER get pizza anywhere like it except in Naples. Maybe Rome has it – can’t remember if Rome had as good of pizza as Naples did…

    If you can, try to hit the Venice fish market early in the morning. Across the Rialto bridge and just keep going. It’s truly an experience.

    We always eat to our hearts content in Italy and each time have come home losing weight!!! It’s an Italian miracle! Italy can’t be properly experienced without the food factor! Have a great trip ~ I loved Venice when we went! Ciao! T in Texas
