Another day, another rickshaw adventure! This time though, the sun came out to play… and even better still, we stumbled upon an amazing surprise in the Italian countryside  – in huge part thanks to us taking a wrong turn and ending up in a town we had no plans to visit. (That’s definitely one of … Continue Reading

New Year, new rickshaw adventures! 😁 This video is some serious farm-to-table video! 😀 We’ve literally done, filmed and edited everything in this video within the last 24 hours. (Who knows, I may yet master the art of this whole daily vlogging thing). As you probably already guessed from the title, we have indeed returned to … Continue Reading

I’ve done so many blog posts on this but I’ve finally gotten round to editing the video from our trip! 🙂 When we were in Italy I ended up going way overboard with the videos and photos I was taking and it was only when I got home and had to sift through hours of … Continue Reading

I’ll get straight to the point – I plan on putting together a proper video on our You Tube channel following our trip across Italy but I got a bit carried away when looking through the video and had to put up this little 45 second teaser. Excited to share it all with you but till … Continue Reading

We arrived late in the evening in Milan for our trip across Italy. Thankfully, we didn’t have much planned for the first evening asides meeting the organisers of the rickshaw ride (TheGira.IT) and other participants over drinks and nibbles so the evening went by in a rather relaxed fashion… (prosecco will do that to you). … Continue Reading

As I type this, I am quite literally knackered and just about ready to fall asleep but I had to update you quickly with some photos on what we’ve been up to so far on our road trip across Italy. Needless to say, the proper blog posts will come soon but I’m guessing you’re as … Continue Reading

Exciting news!!! We’re off to explore Italy for a week with nothing but a backpack and a rickshaw! 🙂 It’s very unlike anything else we’ve done before and we’re very excited about it! Bravofly (which is part of the Lastminute.com group) set us a challenge to see how much of Italy we could cover – … Continue Reading

Perched in the Lombardy region of Italy, Mantua is an ancient Italian city that’s so incredible to see.  There really is so many of the best things to do in Mantua, plus, it has a whopping history too.  After all, being well over 4,000 years old, what else can you expect. 🙂 Now, in lots … Continue Reading

There are literally hundreds (perhaps even thousands? 😃😋) of amazing spots dotted all across Italy and as such, there’s no shortage of some of the best places in Italy to fill your boots with amazing Italian deliciousness, no matter where you are in the country. I mean, I don’t actually think I’ve ever visited without … Continue Reading

There’s no beating around the bush, there are so many beautiful places in Italy to see. It’s one of my favourite countries to just hop in a car, train, rickshaw and just explore! There’s something I just love about getting to Italy, with a loose plan (and Google Maps) in hand and just exploring some … Continue Reading

Italian lakes (usually found in the North of Italy) are famous the world over! Lake Como, Lake Maggiore, Lake Garda to name just a few are some of the most popular so it probably comes as no surprise that we decided to visit one of these amazing lakes in Italy. Lake Garda was our lake … Continue Reading

We woke up on our 2nd full day in Italy to a thick cloud of fog over the Lombardy countryside. It’s gotta be said though – Fog, as unwanted as it can be when you’re up for a sunny holiday, certainly has a way of making a place look so dramatic! Without wasting too much … Continue Reading

My love affair with Italy is long-standing and so very strong – it’s like every trip back there keeps drawing me even more. As you already know, after our first time driving from Milan to the Amalfi coast in a rickshaw, I’ve long since been a fan of slow travel in Italy. The thing about … Continue Reading

Italy is one incredible country to visit and I’m not going to tell any porky pies by saying otherwise! It’s one of Europe’s most diverse countries, with completely different landscapes, culture and weather. This ‘big boot’ of a country has shed loads of things to see, do and, of course, my favourite – EAT! No trip … Continue Reading
