So today I would like to introduce you to Agata from nullnfull.com. We met during a #wegosolo chat and discovered that we have a lot in common! We chatted about travel, our Polish heritage, and our love of all things Italian! And today she will be sharing with us the things she loves most Italy! Enjoy!
What's the best about Italy?
When I have started my adventure with Italy more than fifteen years ago everything about Italy was fascinating. And it still is. Despite the fact I had been living in this country for many years, visited themajority of touristic spots and off the beaten path small villages it still marvels me. There is something about this country that is difficult to explain. Something that seduces, takes your breath away and leaves you wordless. What is even more surprising these are not spectacular or wired things. On the contrary: what marvels me about taly is its simplicity.
Well, what can be more basic than food? I can't begin this paragraph without a short comment on Italian coffee, just like I can't begin my day without a creamy cappuccino. Coffee in Italy, or better say cafe, is exceptional. Each particular kind, starting with normale and ending with ristretto is absolutely paradise like drink.
When I'm not in Italy I'm having a serious problem like millions of the native Italians: where to drink my morning coffee? Love to a good coffee has been growing for years now and, just like the Italians, I bring with me a moka to the end of the world with me.
It's not only about the quality of food. Or about particular tastes of regional dishes. It's about the general eating habits of the Italians. And their celebration of time spent together while at the table. There is no rush just a dusk that comes slowly, bringing coolness and unforgettable taste of good wine and friendship.
This list might go on and on very long. Italy has exceptional cultural and sport events, rich museums and scenic routes but I think the rest needs to be discovered by yourself. So, when do you plan to visit Italy?
Agata is a writer, traveler and blogger. She has travelled to 20+ countries, lived in Italy for many years, and runs a travel blog focused on off the beaten path destinations. Her best holiday combines: trekking in the mountains, visiting famous museums and eating local food. She also loves travel literature and so when she is not traveling you’ll find her sitting in the most comfortable armchair with a travel book in her hand.
