Fountains and churches and orange trees, oh my! Ciao, cinque terre โค๏ธ

It's national pizza month back home in the states! We've gotten an early start on the celebrations being in the birthplace of pizza. Here are a few faves from across the pond ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Heading from beloved Assisi to Certaldo today. Sad to say goodbye but very excited for what's to come.

Good morning! A perfect way to start this rainy day.

Dreamy Assisi

Just before we had our favorite margherita pizza in Napoli, at the place that claims to have invented it. Cheers to eating history.

Mummies, mosaics, and the most impressively intact sculpture collection ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

This meal was a meditation, an exercise in gratitude, a gift from every Roman deity! Rigatoni burro e parmigiano + warm rainbow salad. Only two days in Rome but we'll have to come back again tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฝ

Yesterday's sunny market visit. We bought so much beautiful fresh produce and seafood to cook at our Air BnB for the remainder of our stay. So far, so delicious!

A day at the museum, featuring the braid's true talent, taking pictures of crowded places and making it look like there's no one there.

Took the 6:50 am bus out of Porto and have arrived in Bilbao after a long and beautiful ride. Excited to explore new areas of beloved Spain ๐Ÿ’›

One the best, cutest, happiest hostels either of us has ever stayed in.

FRANCESINHA. Porto takes these bad girls seriously and it's not hard to see why. 3 meats, 2 pieces of bread, 1 egg topped with so much cheese and beer sauce. A slow and glorious death (and a vegetarian one, too!)
