In October I had an impromptu holiday, visiting my mother in the north of Italy, in a small town close to Verbania. If you follow me on Instagram, then it should not be a secret to you that I am in love with Lago Maggiore and the nearby towns. Ever since I laid my eyes on it in the summer of 2011, Lago Maggiore has been a favourite place of mine. In this post, I will share with you some things to do on your holiday if you happen to be in Verbania, Italy.
When you can’t get to Rome, you visit the next best thing, which in the UK is Bath. The seven-hour-drive to this historical place is worth it, believe me, if you are in love with Jane Austen and Roman history.
After a day of research, I came to the conclusion that the best and cheapest way to reach this town from Glasgow is by car. Definitely, one of the smartest decisions in my life, as I had only the weekend to visit and I wanted to spend most of my time in this lovely town. I was visiting a friend; thus, I knew I will be spared the minutes looking at a guide and wondering which way to go next. And I wasn’t wrong, I got the best of Bath in just two days.
If you think that a weekend is not enough, here are the things you can see and do.
Who doesn't love Christmas? I know I love the holiday season, as I always get back home, where I get to see all the relatives and to eat all the food, with the Christmas Eve dinner, the Christmas Day lunch and the New Year's dinner of course. But just before heading home for Christmas this year I decided to make a small stop and to visit my second home in Italy. This turned out to be one of the best ideas ever this year, cause I got to spend a couple of days with my mum and enjoy the festive season in Italy. Oh, and I also had an early Christmas dinner. So, so good! Apparently, Santa knew my Italian address as well, because I received my gifts there. (He really started giving presents early this year, I guess we all want to be home for Christmas, don't we?) So, I got my new camera and started taking photos of Christmas decorations and decided to share them with you. You can click on the photos for more information and don't forget to have an extraordinary Merry Christmas! :)
