everyday vita: shoes and sorrento

Sights

  • On Saturday, we went to Pompeii.  The tour was hot, humid, long, and ... fun.  Our tour of Pompeii had every bit of potential to be horrendously boring (especially since I have the attention span of a fruit fly...). However, we had the coolest tour guide ever (shout out to Chelo!) who made the tour super interesting.

  • I haven't been to the beach at all yet this summer (talk about an insane farmer's tan...).  I finally took a dip in the big blue and it was awesome. I love walking around with crazy, salty hair.  I also love how my skin feels after taking a dip in the ocean. Fun fact: the magnesium in salt water hydrates and nourishes your skin.

  • We've been walking so much that my trusty old Tigers gave me the most insane blisters :(.  My boy saw me struggling and got me a pair of white Supergas here (you're the best). I've been wearing them for the past day and a half and no blisters yet! :) 
  • I went to the Trevi on Tuesday and tossed a coin into the fountain -- then I learned that you have to throw the coin over your left shoulder or else it doesn't work.  Needless to say, I went back for a do-over.  
Bites


  • You may have thought that I'd had enough with the crazy gelato flavors after my "tomato basil" experience.  However, I ordered another weird flavor yesterday: spirulina.  The gelato was bright, dayglo blue and it was super yummy.  Sometimes trying new things is good (except in the case of tomato basil gelato...)

  • Nutella. To. Go.  Enough said.  This was my lunch on the bus ride to Sorrento -- nutella, cookie sticks, and peach iced tea, all bundled together in a sweet little cylinder.  Lunchables just got owned. 

If I buy 140 jars of Nutella, I can get this awesome nutella toaster... 

  • The perfect breakfast = super crusty bread slathered in Nutella.
