Swiftly following on from the 30 things you need to know before visiting Italy and a little inspired by this table cloth (via our snapchat @HandLuggageOnly – see tweet below), I figured it made sense to accompany that little guide with a food section. A food guide to Italy! (Probably a tacky souvenir to have but actually … Continue Reading

Italy is one of the most beautiful countries to visit in Europe, nay, the world! My love for this country goes almost as deep as my love of chocolate-flavoured-anything, which I feel no remorse about and no reason to apologise for! Some favourite, off the top of my head, is the stunning Tuscan towns, the gorgeous … Continue Reading

Cinque Terre is many a traveller’s dream location (especially in Italy) and with summer just around the corner, promising with it oddles of sunshine, thoughts of holiday makers start to wander towards picture perfect colourful locations like this Italian gem in the Ligurian sea. I honestly can’t recommend Cinque Terre enough, it’s one of those … Continue Reading

The hard part’s done; you’ve decided you want to go to Italy and you’ve decided that you’d like to see this by road. Okay, perhaps that’s not the hard part but still, making those decisions is a pretty great start. Now, let us take things from there for you and share our 1-week road trip itinerary … Continue Reading

From the stunning cites like Rome, coastal regions like Cinque Terre and the incredible villages in southern regions, Italy is one of the most diverse European countries to visit. That being said, it can get pretty bamboozling to plan a trip to see as much as possible. This is so true when there’s so much … Continue Reading

First off, 24 hours is too little time to spend in the Amalfi coast. That being said, we decided we would give it our very best shot while on our road trip across Italy. It was our final stop in our rickshaw afterall. As with every other day, we arrived in the middle of the … Continue Reading

As much as I would love to take credit for deciding that this is indeed one of the most dramatic cities in Europe, other people did this way ahead of me and a trip to this city only further corroborated that designation. Orvieto truly is something else! The city is built on almost vertical cliffs … Continue Reading

Right after leaving Milan, we hit the open roads of Italy and started off our first proper drive in the rickshaw. I think it’s safe to say that this is the most terrified I was on the entire trip. Everything was so new and everyone on the roads was moving much faster than we were … Continue Reading

Cinque Terre is one of those icon places in Italy that had been on my travel list for many many years (thank you, Pinterest). I probably recognised the pictures of the gorgeous Italian towns before I actually even knew their names. Determined to visit, we hurriedly booked flights over to Pisa and drove over to … Continue Reading

Summertime is holiday time. Countries literally seem to shut down for weeks at a time while everyone heads off for holiday (here’s looking at your France and Italy) and so it comes as no surprise that this is one of the best times to plan that amazing trip you’ve been dreaming about doing in Europe. … Continue Reading

Long before we started blogging, while working a full-time job (or studying full time – depending on the year), we travelled almost as often as we currently do! It started like it does for most people – you book your first trip somewhere, have an amazing time and as soon as you get back home, start … Continue Reading

When most people think of travel essentials—especially travel essentials for guys—it’s safe to say most minds probably never go straight to skincare. Tech gadgets, practical shoes and luggage most often spring to mind, but grooming products never seem to be the most obvious. Yet when you stop and take a moment to think about it … Continue Reading

Last time we were in Italy on a road trip (in a rickshaw), one place I’d really wanted to visit was San Gimignano. I had lots of people recommend it on Instagram and Facebook yet for some reason or the other, we never quite made it to San Gimignano. Well this time, we had lots … Continue Reading

It’s high time to get the summer holiday plans in gear and, inspired by the amazing colourful selection of summer essentials over at Kapten & Sons, we’ve put together an equally colourful, tried and tested selection of the very best places you need to add to your summer plans this year. Seeing as we’ve got … Continue Reading
