Rossopomodoro – A taste of Italy and woodfired pizza in Covent Garden

As a kiwi student living in digs, dreams of exploring the cobbled streets of Italy simply seemed impossible. Fast-forward a life re-evaluation, living with my family for a year, working 50+ hour work weeks, an interminably long flight to the other side of the world, and I finally felt like I was getting a little closer.

Rome left me a little cool, it was busy and crazy.… View Post

When it’s all over…

When I spotted this Q&A on Audrey Louise’s blog, something compelled me to take her lead [inspired by Kezzie originally] and throw my answers in as well about when it’s all over. If I’m being completely honest, I haven’t thought very much about the future. I’ve always been a very firm proponent of living in the moment (except when it comes to travel plans, it’s always nice to have the next adventure in the making) and… View Post
