Finally! The end of the Italy posts! I didn’t think this day would come, but these posts certainly are my favorite to go back and read and I hope they are helpful for anyone out there who finds them.
I met Kimber way back in December and she has been one of my best friends since then. We immediately hit it off and always have a good time together, so I was so happy she could come for a few days! She is living in Italy right now, so it was a pretty easy journey for her. The first night, we made quite the feast and stayed up late talking:
We rented a huge Airbnb in Genoa which had a fully equipped kitchen, lots of room to spread out, and an awesome view!
We had two fulls days, which we spent visiting different beaches:
The beach shown above is a “beach privati” aka a private beach, like many of the Italian beaches. Just 15 minutes down the road was the public beach, which is much more our speed.
More eating, wine drinking, talking, etc.
On the second day, we started with a Nike Training Club workout in our flat! I’m sure the downstairs neighbors thought something bad was happening haha. After a sweaty workout, we had breakfast and headed to the next beach!
And then headed home and feasted on leftover lasagna and fresh gnocchi with FRESH PESTO! Pesto comes from Genoa and if you want to be kind to yourself, you should go to any supermarket in Genoa and buy yourself a big vat of fresh pesto and a huge container of fresh pasta (gnocchi recommended) and eat it all.
The next morning, we had to be up at 5 am to leave home by 6 am and head back to Milan. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.
Not fun, but the trip was AMAZING.
