Dis was my first time in Italy, I was not going to fuck it up! There was a v specific list in my head of three things I needed to do….pizza….wine….and hand gestures. Ciao bella!
I woke up, had an Italian workout, set my eyes on the nearest castle looking structure AND MADE A FUCKIN B-LINE. I was onnnn it. ..Italy just made me happy
I'm making my way up a hill to Forte Falcone... taking it all in, this didn't come off like some over run tourist town, it was super charming in every direction, all the way to the top of the hill.
my intent was to cover as much ground on this island as possible, running into some pretty cool surprises along the way.... *cue artsy shot of a bird and unique plants*
|Forte Falcone....and the pizza shop with the blue awning...incredible.|
I walked all around the hill of the fortress before running into a dead end, looped back to the port, and headed down the coast to see what the neighborhoods were like. My journey landed me in the middle of a residential neighborhood on some random street a couple miles out from the port. I'm walkin about and suddenly a large group of bikes comes wizzing past me....and as the last riders come by I hear "Hi Chris!"....."Hey Chris!"....and turn to see my favorite Australians.
I met this Australian couple on my boat during the "ho for history" booze and tapaps tour in Cartagena ..they were V impressed by my ability to booze. I ran into them next in an absolutely random alley way in the middle of Barcelona.....and then once more in Monaco hanging around the palace....to be in the middle of some random ass residential neighborhood in the hills of this Italian city had me laughing so hard i nearly peeded.
|I had to take a pic of the place where they ran into me LOL|
another 10 min of walking and I ran into signs for Capo Bianco beach....a beach made of white
|Lots of beaches on this island have this lewk|
but all this walking was making me hungry.
|What is this? A worship center for ants!?..|
|I imagined this is what all roads would look like|
|Wishing I had a slinkey|
|Care home for anorexia...you leave when you can't enter anymore.|
...Im starving and recalled the pizza place from my first pic of the fortress...by the time I arrived they tell me "full menu no more...pizza and wine only". (didn't need the excuse but since its all they had).
I was scarred from Monaco and literally fork n knifed this pizza. My list had been completed for my first time in Italy. I had pizza, wine, and got to express myself via my hands all day #deadmemes. The next stop in Italy is going to be Portofino, which was next level gorgeous but did not have this kind of humble charm.
