It’s been a year since our Italy trip and one of our best days was spent in Pisa. We explored the small city, grabbed a few cappuccinos, a wine spritzer, some questionable pizza, and just had an overall blast.(The wall of the city has an arch that give you a peek into the Tower, we were so excited when we found it!)
(It was the most perfect weather we could have asked for. Also, all of the buildings are pristine; so white and clean)
(I wonder if we were the first ones to think of doing this)
(We visited a museum within the walls and I loved seeing these statues. An invading city chopped off all of their noses)
(Inside the Duomo)
We had such a great time, I can’t believe it has been a year already! Time flies when you are having fun!
So many memories flood my mind when I think about our trip to Europe but by far one of the funnest days we had in Italy was when we took the train to Pisa. We had no idea what to expect and we had been tucked away in a very remote mountain villa so it was like all of the sudden we had a field day! As soon as we got there, these Italians gave us these vodka drinks with these crazy straws and the code to free internet. It was like we didn’t even need to see the small town of Pisa but of course we eventually meandered on.
Oh yeah, they also gave us these awesome little cookies with our cappuccino’s. What more could we ask for?!
We sheepishly asked a vendor (after our drinks, you can’t blame us), where the tower was and low and behold it was right around the corner!
I love this photo of Chels.
Of course I did the obvious jump shot.
It really does lean!
I love that you can see the people in this one on the top tier.
I’ve heard many say that they were not amused with Pisa and let’s be honest, it is a very small place. No matter how small though, we found it incredibly beautiful. Chelsea also taught me that Van Gogh’s “field of dreams” was here where he would paint. I loved this fact because I found it very picturesque and the large lawns seem like the perfect painting grounds. Pisa is worth a visit if you ask us!

Anyone who knows Brittany and me will tell you we both love to eat. That didn’t change one bit in Italy, in fact I think our love of eating heightened to dangerous levels. Once we were done with a meal, we were discussing what we would eat next. After looking through my photos I was alarmed by how many pictures of food I took, but not alarmed enough to not share them with you! Take a look as we ate our way through Italy.
(I tried every flavor, I guarantee it!)
(At times two cappuccinos were ordered, walking gets tiring!)
(This meringue was the size of my head. Don’t worry, I ate 1/10th of it and then decided that was enough sugar for the day)
(This watermelon taffy was amazingly delicious!)
(My boyfriend and I make arancini once per quarter, that’s all we’re allowed to consume. But when the cat’s away, the mouse will play)
(We love candy, we love it. And the sweet stores were so beautiful in Venice!)
(Britt found this lemon slushie that made our mouths pucker. I am obsessed with lemons so this was a real treat!)
The one thing I learned about Italy? It’s delicious.
