Someone recently asked the question ‘where in the world would you go first if you hadn’t travelled?’ It got me thinking about my favourite destination so far. Maybe it’s because it’s still fresh in my mind, but I think it would have to be Italy!
I love the food, the street fashion, the colours, the history, the architecture, the climate and (normally when I am not carrying) the wine!
By chance we happened to be in Sirmione near Verona when this beautiful Vintage Market was on, giving me just one more reason to love Italy! Vintage Gucci, Prada, Fendi and Bottega Veneta bags, scarves, shoes and jewellery all at your finger tips.
It would have been easy to go a bit crazy here, generally though I try not to shop a lot when I travel as it usually ends in an impulse buy that you rarely wear on your home soil, but there was a lot to tempt me here! Caught up in the moment I wanted one of those floppy 70’s straw garden hats, some costume jewellery and a vintage clutch but realistically, will I be a wearing a wide brimmed sun hat back in Helsinki? Looking out the window today (and it’s officially mid summer holiday)…Not likely!

Where is your favourite travel destination? I love Italy and hope to share a few more snaps from our recent visit, if baby stays put that is. Right now I am feeling massive and slowing down by the day.
