Romancing: La dolce vita

la dolce vita

It’s the details in the architecture, the fresh flower pots outside the windows of the pastel painted houses, the couple kissing in the middle of the chaos of people– Europe is the epitome of romantic.

At first I thought it was just the ‘honeymoon phase’ of traveling, maybe even my hopeless romantic spirit,  but a conversation with a local Italian (with impressive English) solidified my thoughts: “The daily life in Europe is very different in Europe than in the States… how we live life” he said. A culture of not rushing through the day, but savoring it all– especially that Italian “breakfast” of a nutella-filled pastry and a cappuccino.

I could get used to la dolce vita.
