{let the summer travels begin!}

{lovely drink with lovely view--yes please!}
Excuse my absence from the blogosphere but I've spent the last few weeks in lovely Vancouver with family & friends. Tomorrow I'll be off on a plane, up in the skies, headed for Italia! First stop is Florence for a conference held at this amazing venue in Fiesole:

I'm hoping we'll be allowed to walk around the grounds.
After Florence I'll be back in Naples for a week. I spent a few months in Naples while conducting doctoral research & I haven't been back since.
My favourite shots from when I lived there:
{gorgeous votive image & pink paint}


{great piazza for coffee &/or prosecco. notice how prominent vespe are here!}


{markets/store that open onto the street}

{vini e oli (wine & oil), as if these are the two most essential things in life}
{crumbling edifices & laundry hanging}
I'm also looking forward to trips to the nearby islands such as Procida (below) & down the Amalfi Coast (such as Positano, further below):

For my trips to the beach, I like this collection:
