Contrary to popular belief, I have not been detained in Italy for the last 8 months.

but I HAVE now been away from home for a year. With a third trip to Spain coming up, I’ll make time to fill in the blanks between pitchers of sangria… but for now;

A big hug to the amazing people that played a part in my year of 29 flights between 14 countries and life in a new city. Hell, I’ll even thank the assholes, thieves, the french, creeps, and obnoxious hostel folk. I’ll always try to remember the late nights & laughs with wonderful new friends (wherever you are), and hope to see more of my favourite old familiar faces! I feel as though I have so much to show for the last year, though in material wealth I have next to nothing left. That thought would have been absolutely terrifying two years ago, but I’ll be forever thankful to whatever switch decided to go off. Cheers to the amazing city of London, a little risk, a lot of luck, and no regrets. Now, back to apartment hunting (tough times realizing you can’t afford to have a living room at 26… hmmm maybe a little regret).

p.s. a little extra love going out to Danny F for introducing me to a love of backpacking and putting up with me across 4 different continents. My bag gets a little lighter each time, promise! Meet me in Iceland?

Caitie and Danny doodle shit in Turkey - On busses, in bars, while trying to ignore your screaming children, in airports, during rainstorms, with nargile, or without, every day we doodling!

Italy and Spain should get more cuddly animals. I miss em!

Cucina Italiana. so simple and so delicious. It did get a bit repetitive (for vegetarians at least) but the gnocchi was to die for, fresh tomato sauce was amazing, endless perfect gelato shops, great espresso, unbelievably cheap and tasty wine, thin and crispy pizza, and beautiful displays of desserts everywhere you look. Seafood was always an option while wild boar and tripe seemed quite popular in cities like Florence. There was a wild mushroom and parmesan risotto in Sorrento that i will remember for the rest of my life. more please!
