A few posts earlier I mentioned about my plan of having my birthday “celebration” in Verona, at Giuletta’s house to be precise. Why? Because my name is Yulia, which is derived from Juliet, a.k.a Giuletta. Haha, nice try! However, Verona is quite far from Bologna, our main post for the week in Italy and after having two hectic days with the little one, it was wiser to stay in the city and explore it instead.
Have I not told you that this journey to Italy is basically inspired by programmes or movies I have seen on television or Netflix? And Modena is one of the places I wanted to see after watching the documentary series Chef’s Table. I have watched how chef’s Massimo Bottura cooked in the documentary and very curious about the dishes he creates. His restaurants Osteria Francescana is one of the best restaurants in the world and I am sure there would be pages of ethic rules just to go into his restaurants and going to a three Michelin stars restaurant with a child is not a good idea. I am sure the Matrie D of the restaurant would not like it either. So what did we do?
Bologna oh Bologna la rossa, la grassa (fat)!
How I love to go there again and eat tagliatelle con ragu every day, seven days a week! In this city which has loads of interesting things to see, these are the hotspots of Bologna according to me.
We planned to just stay in the Netherlands this summer but I could not resist when I saw cheap ticket price from Ryan Air last June. Where to go? Call me cliché but I got my travel inspiration after seeing the movie “Under the Tuscany Sun” on the television. So, Italy it was!
Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. Some would think, why on earth I post an article about things to love on one of the most crowded city in the world? Well you know what, there is always something positive in every side of the coin. Even though Jakarta is a metropolitan with its good and bad sides, there are some things you would find interesting in Jakarta. I have been living abroad for nine years now, but there is always something that takes my soul back to that town again. Planning a trip to Indonesia? And having a couple of days of layover in Jakarta? Then here are some tips from me, about how to have a good time in Jakarta.
