  • Solfatara

    Today I went to Solfatara, a volcano near Naples that lets off steam and gives fresh water. It was a good experience if a little overpriced, but the sunshine made up for it. However, the sulfur absolutely reeked… I can’t...

  • Salsiccia

    This means sausage, but it is also the name of a popular Neapolitan topping that involves cheese, sausage and a heck of a lot of spinach. I keep ordering it thinking it’s just sausage, and being surprised by the green...

  • Year Abroad V – the Erasmus paperwork and Welcome Week

    Siena, Italy                                                           late March, 2017 Ciao! I’m back with a new...

  • Surf 2k17 Moroccan Adventure

    During this Inter Semester Break, I have possibly had, what I would call, the best trip of my life. Paying £300 to go Morocco with Bath’s Surfing Society has most probably been one of my best money spending decisions to...

  • Chiaia

    Before I leave to go to England for Easter for a week,  I thought I should take the opportunity to post a photo of where I live! This is Chiaia, an absolute dream compared to the run down (still beautiful)...

  • Affinché

    I probably knew words like this already from Bath (at least I should), but I thought I’d write how interesting it is studying French from an Italian’s perspective. Affinché means pour que or afin que in French (“in order that”...
