I couldn’t blend in as a local in Europe even if I tried. A rustic doorway, snap, I have to take a picture. Food? click, click click, that stuff is definitely going on instagram…Oooh, a pebble, let me rearrange it so it looks extra special snap snap snap. Laugh as you may, I’m actually not as bad as some of my friends It’s definitely hard not to take so many photos in Europe when every turn of the corner looks like it belongs on a postcard or in a nostalgic foreign film. When I spend time filtering through these images, the embarrassment is long forgotten; I have these unique moments ingrained in my memory and captured on film to share with everyone for years to come.
I was giddy with excitement over these beautiful and bright coloured residential homes in Siena. Something as mundane as locals hanging their washing out to dry just adds to authentic Tuscan look don’t you think?
A dreamy Sangimiano by dusk …
While in Tuscany, we enrolled a cooking class for a day at with Katia and Fulvio in San Gimignano which was such an enjoyable experiencing making pasta from scratch and then filling our bellies with the fruits of our labour.
Psst … these are officially my favourite pair of casual jeans for travelling. Remember how I was on search of the perfect boyfriend jeans here? These Zara Boyfriend Jeans fit my budget (£40 from memory) and are the most comfy pair I own (perfect for over indulging in Tiramisu and wine). I’m yet to dress them up with heels but for now, am content with a more casual look. Hope you enjoyed both Pt 1 and Pt 2 of my Tuscany Travel diary xo
