Travel: Exploring Sicily – Mondello beach

Happy midsummer everyone! Today is Sunday, midsummer and also my name day therefore triple reason to make this day special. (Already started with some fit pancakes and homemade frozen yogurt (recipe soon will follow) ice cream). Also Sunday is about traveling and sharing my stories and tips and today is not an exception – I will share my second part of my Sicily getaway – exploring Palermo beach – Mondello.

Mondello is a beach for people in Palermo that can be reached in 20 min from Palermo with car or  25 min with a public bus nr. 806 from Palermo – stop Piazza Don Sturzo. (Time table you can find on AMAT homepage and ticket costs 1,4 eur (absolutely mandatory), the bus goes every 15 minutes, so no really need to rush.)

As our main objective of this short weekend break was to hit the beach and get some tan than that was exactly we did our second morning right after waking up.  Read More

4 delicious places you must try at Palermo

During my trips I always try to explore the typical cuisine and some particular places of the spot. of course I always try to go for the fit and healthy food as much as possible but also traditional food of the place I do love to try and share my experience. (Another good reason to workout and do cardio because it allows you to try some things that is not so ” clean” or “low on calories” as they should be, but what would be life without pleasure of exploring new tastes and pleasures? I always try to go with a 90/10 plan – 90% clean eating and 10% something that is out of my diet, therefore I am not torturing myself and it helps a lot to stick to the diet better as you know that there is a time you can treat yourself.) As I knew I will go to Sicily, which is world famous for its cuisine and especially sweets (even though not big fan of sweets, as prefer salty things) and I knew that won’t be able to work out for that weekend so I just had a pact with myself – do some extra hard dieting and workout routine 31 day before so I do not feel guilty of enjoying my time there. And I must say – it was a wonderful experience indeed. (The Palermo post you can read here).

As I had there just for a long weekend than I couldn’t explore too many places, but the ones I did, is definitely worth mentioning and a crime not to try the food there.  Read More

Palermo bedda which in Sicilian means beautiful Palermo and I completely agree – it was not only beautiful but also enchanting and so wonderful experience that brings you back in centuries and let’s you grasp a piece of history and life back than. People seems be appreciating every moment of the life, always smiling and so friendly wherever you go.  Maybe one of the main reasons for this happiness and goodness is the finger-lickin’ good food because we all know that full stomach makes happy heart.

This was my first time in Sicily and I must say I fulfill almost all the things from my Palermo wish list I prepared upon leaving.

Waky waky, it’s Friday! While most of people are on their way to work I am was off to airport to head to Palermo, Sicily where will spend this weekend! So excited for all the new experiences in tastes ahead, but first things first – today is Foody Friday and as this is a travelling post than wanted also to share with you my travelling breakfast secret and tip to catch an early flight/train and not to snack at airport on something unhealthy.

My solution, that work’s always is overnight oats. It’s easy, fast and so delicious. It is perfect, if you do not have time to prepare breakfast at morning, so you prepare it the night before and just eat it before hitting the road or option B – take it with you in a food container.

The recipe is simple Read More

Another weekend is over but still loads of things left to plan and prepare ahead as next week will be real busy. The Exitment is real – this weekend I am oficially opening beach season as I am heading to – PALERMO! Been looking for opening my summer with something new and exciting adventures and discoveries and I believe that Sicily is exactly what I need to give the right tune for it.

To give you a taste of my mood and hype I am having right now – listen to the song by Mark Ronson – Feel Right and it will take you there.

This acient Mediterranean capital – “città delle delizie” the city of delights (from Italian) is  more than 2700 years old where is living harmoniously Arabic domes, Baroque style churches, Art Nouveau buildings, eighteenth-century green spaces and bustling traditional markets similar to the Arab souk. All this and many other things I have already read, noted and found out about this wonderful city today as I dedicated it soley to a reserch and preparation for my short trip next week and. Also I have made a check list what to see, do and try while being there to create some wonderful memories.

In every trip there is a highlight – in my Thailand getaway it was definitely island hopping and exploring myself the famous Maya Bay where was shot the famous movie ” The Beach” with Leonardo di Caprio. Of course exploring this islands was kind of dream-come-true.

As we were at Phuket on peak season – Christmas holiday period than of course it was packed of tourists and that was the reason why everything cost at least double and was fully-booked. Therefore instead of 2 day trip around Phi-Phi islands with sleepover there we went for a day trip, which I must say was not bad at all.

Celebrating new Year at beach with bear feet is one thing that I can cross out of my Travel-Bucket-list because this dream was full filled last year at Phuket, Thailand – the ultimate New Year’s destination where the weather is perfect, ranging 23°C-28°C at December and ideal for hitting beaches in flip flops and summer shorts and not getting burned immediately.

Actually I did not go there for partying but to rest, relax and regain strength for new year to start it fully recovered. Previous year has been crazily intense in work, in private life, travelling and never manage to fully stop, think and relax so this trip was something I was looking forward for last quarter and was counting days (seriously – had a countdown – Day Counter application in my phone to motivate me and keep me going).

As a traveler that prefers to have a real, local experience wherever I did not book a hotel but rented a flat in a condominium via Airbnb.com which is perfect way to save money and have your own way. Read More

In Sundays I write about my adventures and travel experience and also today is not an exception. As the name of the post already indicates – this will be continue my Bangkok’s story.

Actually it is not so much about Bangkok, but about places around. On 3rd day we went to explore the Floating market which is 1h outside the city so we headed there really early to not find tourist crowds. Read More

Have you ever had the feeling that a beautiful holiday seems like just like a dream when you come back home and get back to a daily routine? For me it was like that. It has passed just a month since I came back from my Christmas getaway holiday in Thailand but feels like it has been years ago.

However all the landscapes, views, colors, diversity, smells and tastes are still vivid and ready to be shared with the world. Read More

It’s been a while since I last time managed to run away from Milan and it was not for a work.

Lately I have been travelling like a flight attendant and working day and night that’s why I said to myself (and to my boyfriend): ” That’s it! you and I need a break!and we need it now!”He completely agreed and on a sunny Sunday morning we headed North to find a place called Catedrale Vegetale – a Green tree Cathedral somewhere in mountains which was suggested by a friend . Sounded mysterious but I did not mind – in contrary was happy to get some little dose of Italian mountain beauty and have a small adventure.
