Panarea- Isole de Eolie, Italia ♡

IMG_0976

Sadly my trip to Italy is over but I am thankful to be able to look back at these beautiful pictures I took. During my trip to Italy I was able to visit two of the several islands in Isole de Eolie. My favorite by far was an island called Panarea.

The buildings at Panarea were so beautiful and characteristic. I felt like I was in Santorini! This building behind me is a home…. isn’t it sooo dreamy?!

The streets were very narrow. Believe it or not golf carts were able to pass by these tiny roads! They used the golf carts as taxis in Panarea which is something I have never seen before.

The  buildings were white and with a few plants it  changed the atmosphere of every little street.

I also was able to swim here. The water was so warm! Ahhh I want to go back!!

This is me in my natural state enjoying a erba meditarranea granita (which had mint, finocchi (fennel), and lemon. I know it sounds kind of funky but it wasn’t guys it was soooooo good!

I can’t wait to go back!

I already miss you Panarea.

With so much love,

The cutest gelato shop opened on Newbury St. which is a street near where I live in Boston. I noticed that they served their gelato shaped like a rose… So  it obviously caught my attention!!

 As a last farewell hangout my roommates & I decided to go before we all left to go home for summer break. We all got the picollo cone, which is the gelato with the rose. Amorino sells are their cone gelatos in a rose shape. We got to choose up to three flavors.

mmmmm it was soo good and satisfying to eat such delicious gelato shaped like a rose! For some reason I felt it tasted even better when it was shaped like a rose haha

 They even sold macarons with gelato  which I didn’t get to try but I will definitely be going back in the fall to try it out.

Amorino states that they only use organic eggs, fresh milk,  and selected fruits with no artificial colors or flavors.

If you are in the Boston area or in New York, France, Italy you should definitely check Amorino out!! Here is their website for more information- http://www.amorino.com/en/

Let me know how you like it!

with so much love,

I had the pleasure of going to the Arnold Arboretum today with my Japanese Music & Instruments class. Today was a great day to go because the weather was absolutely beautiful.

The arboretum was made so that a man could experiment and see how different trees from different continents and climates can grow grow in  different atmospheres. I was able to see trees from many different continents which was very interesting.

My teacher brought traditional  Japanese snacks so we  sat  under the cherry blossom trees and had a little picnic.

aren’t they so beautiful?

It was so refreshing to step away from campus, various projects, and finals.

I  just enjoyed the beautiful weather and peaceful atmosphere.
