ITALY AT LAST

So, I realize the Italy photos are a bit over do. Ever since I've returned it's been a whirlwind of getting my 16thColony spring/summer 2016 collection ready.

Anyway, as you know from my previous post from when I was staying in Bergamo, this trip was literally last minute. In case you were wondering, here's what went down. On a Thursday, my bae got a gig to film in Bergamo, Italy for a few days and was scheduled to leave the very next day. So we both bought tickets and within 23 hours we were headed out to our dream spot. Ever since we've been back from Australia a few months ago, Italy has moved into our #1 spot of travel. We knew we'd make it there someday but not in such a spontaneous way - that's what made it even more special.

Like I said, the trip started in Bergamo where he was filming and during that time I had the opportunity to explore and take photos solo. One of my favorite parts of the trip was the first day I was there and stumbled across an authentic little cafe. I sat outside, drank espresso and read a book. It was the most incredible feeling to sit there and think 'Whoa, I'm in Italy and had no idea I'd be here a couple days ago.' I honestly wanted to cry I was so happy.



After a few days in Bergamo and taking the train in to Milan a couple times to check out the Duomo we headed to Rome. Initially Rome wasn't on the list of stops but since everything was planned so quickly we actually didn't realize that there is a bullet train to get us there in 3 hours. So obviously, we hopped on that, drank some wine and ended up in Rome. The train was such a cool and pivotal part of the experience and traveling throughout Italy - I loved it.

Next up, a ton of photos from Rome.
