Positano in October

A little birdie’s been a’whisperin’ in my ear and it sounds like I have an awesome opportunity to travel to my homeland, (ok fine) my wannabe homeland, in October. To sunbathe on the Amalfi Coast is such a dream of mine. Ever since my first trip to Italy and Naples when I had the chance to visit the Blue Grotto off the island of Capri, I knew I had to get my butt in that water and ON that coast. Sadly, an awfully rainy day took us to Pompeii instead of Capri and Blue Grotto. Moreover, it’s obvious that a … Continue reading Positano in October

College Grad

LOL- in short- I legit finished my degree back in December 2009. BUT, I wanted to travel- so I chose a cheap option, and went to Italy for the month of Jan 2010 with CUNY HUNTER- actually brought in the New Year somewhere in the middle of the North Atlantic. Things got crazy and I hadn’t applied for May ’10 graduation on time. A lot of my friends- that I finished my degree with, finished that semester (Spring 10) and were walking in May. I WAS NOT missing out on that- and let’s be serious, I couldn’t get by with … Continue reading College Grad

Grenade in Italian is “Granata”

O dioooo! So it was leaked by TMZ and confirmed by MTV: Jersey Shore Season 4 is headed to Italy. Where they’ll stay, and what in god’s name they’ll be doing is unknown, but it is confirmed they’ll be crossing the Atlantic and grace the boot with their drunken hot madness :)! I told a couple of friends of mine about the big news, and a very funny friend of mine… Meghan, basically scripted the season as follows: “If italy sent over a bunch of obnoxious, ridiculous looking transfer celebs for a party abroad program here in the US, i … Continue reading Grenade in Italian is “Granata”

Not So New Years…

Tomorrow will be a weird day for me, as a year from tomorrow was the last time I saw my grandfather.  I went to visit him at the hospital, and brought him a light up Santa hat, on my way down to the airport; I spent New Years 2010 on a plane to Florence Italy. Every time I think about that night, and how I kissed him on the head, I wonder if he knew that was the last time he’d see me. He passed away January 8th, 2010, and my family, especially my mom, have never been the same … Continue reading Not So New Years…
