Hi.

I'm Mallory, a storyteller, writer, adventurer, avid reader and wanna-be-yogi. 

Stick around for adventures featuring my sassy af corgi and incredibly kind husband. 

When you eat marble on the streets of Rome, you stand back up and eat pizza

When you eat marble on the streets of Rome, you stand back up and eat pizza

As evident in my last posts we've had some rough travel incidents. One of which involved me slipping on a marble sidewalk and falling flat on my face with my pack on in the middle of the street in Rome. But, we prevailed and decided we needed a few days of R&R before we headed on further adventures.

So we decided to stay in Italy, cause the food is cheap and the scenes are fab. And after a few days in Rome, we caught the beach bug and headed to the coast of Italy, and are now staying in a tIny town outside Rome called Lido Ostia, where not a soul speaks English. But, last night we had the biggest and most beautiful pizzas you've ever seen.  

Here's what we found about our last few days in Italy.  

The food and wine are wonderful (as expected, but it meets expectations).

That also goes for Gelato, my real passion.

Italy has friends. We accidentally crashed Annalisa and Daniel's honeymoon by deciding to stay in Rome, but in turn we've had some great adventures.  

One morning we went to the market and bought food to make dinner that night. Daniel made meatballs and I made pasta sauce (Poppy's recipe, of course) . The cheese at the market was the best in the world.

Beyond our day of the market, we've walked hundreds of miles (at least, it feels like it), drank lots of liters of wine, eaten pizza and gelato every day, and prepared for some adventures beyond Italy. 

Speaking of pizza I ate the best pizza in this bakery outside the Vatican. It's just a little circle of bread with some sauce and cheese on top, it resembled a pastry and it was heavenly.

Today you will find us lying on the beach, dreaming of the next city, and missing Maybie just a little.

Love, love,
