I’m finally getting around to putting some posts together about our Italy adventures. You see, sorting through hundreds of pictures, being pregnant, and wanting to soak up all the summer fun after work—leaves less and less time for this little space. But don’t worry, I’ll be here as frequent as I can.
The next day we wanted to do some exploring, so we had the boys hop into the double stroller and we navigated that thing on those cobble streets like pros. We got a lot of stares along the way because I’m not sure double strollers are really a thing over there. Ours has seen so many miles and has been to several different countries that it will probably feel weird on our first trip that we don’t bring it along.
The streets there were so pretty and so amazing to take in. There was a shop for everything and tons of small businesses. There were no huge retailers that were your one stop shop. If you needed your meat you went to one store. If you needed your bread, you went to another. From what I’ve observed, much of Europe is like that with the exception of some areas. In all my packing for the family I somehow forgot my mascara and needed to buy some. That was interesting trying to communicate that to the locals. After some hand gestures and me talking louder (as if that would help) we learned that a perfumeria is the place to go. Sure enough, that’s where all the makeup was, Loreal and all.
