A Beginners Guide to Storing Wine

The Italian Classicist in me loves a good glass of wine, and as I’ve recently been in Rome, I thought this guest post that popped into my email inbox may be interesting to some of you! It’s also a cheeky opportunity to share a few more of my Rome pictures. I’m very busy with writing essays at the moment, but after reading this I’m craving the bottle of Rose in my fridge… If you are a newcomer to the world…

Buongiorno from Rome!

Buongiorno! I’m writing this in our hotel lobby, Occidental Aurelia, just down the road from Vatican city! A friend from work planned a trip to Rome, and I just happened to be on reading week, so grabbed a cheap British Airways flight to show her around for a few days. Our trip so far has consisted of the typical tourist sites including the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill,  Vatican, Trevi Fountain and all that jazz, along with incredibly cheap (and…

Top UK Places To Escape City Life

Busy modern city life can sometimes become too much. There can be too many people all crammed into one place, not enough time to relax and too much rushing everywhere. There’s too many grey concrete and tall buildings, and a severe lack of green fields. There are, of course, many beautiful parks and shared open spaces to enjoy in the city. However, sometimes it can be important to get away from the hectic fast-pace for a few days, escape the…

Planning the Ultimate Housemate Holiday!*

Apologies for the influx of holiday-themed blog posts, but I guess I’m just in the mood to get away from cold and rainy November London. I promise I’ve got one of those deep-and-meaningful 5am thoughts blog posts coming up soon, so prepare yourselves for that mess. Anyway, today is about fun things. I am yet to go on a ‘housemate holiday’ specifically, but I definitely think that having a holiday, or just a short trip with your uni friends helps…

How To Capture Tuscan Style

This is a bit of a different topic for me, but today I’m talking about fashion. More specifically, the beautiful Italian fashion from Tuscany. I’m Italian on my Mother’s side, currently learning the language and studying the good old Romans at University. In fact, I’m graduating at the end of July and starting a Master’s degree, so you could say I’m a bit obsessed with Italy. Rome is amazing of course, but Italy has so much more to offer than…

Living The Dream in Delphi

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I’ve been keeping off social media as much as possible over the holidays, and I have lots of uni work to do, so the blog is looking a bit bare, but FEAR NOT, I have lots of awesome blog posts coming up! Two weeks ago I returned from a wonderful trip to Athens, and I still can’t believe I even had the opportunity to go! While in Athens, we took…

An Athenian Photo Diary

An Athenian Photo Diary Last week I had the amazing opportunity to visit Athens and Delphi with my King’s College London classmates, as part of our Classical Greek Art and Archaeology module. We had an absolutely wonderful time, words cannot describe how amazing it is to see all of the things we’ve spent years studying in real life. Last year we went to Rome, which was equally amazing, but I’d never visited Greece at all until now, so it was…
