As mentioned in my last post, I spent my summer holiday in Italy this year. My travel companion was fellow coffee nut and good friend Audun Sørbotten. We decided to split the holiday in two: first a visit to beautiful Firenze (for the museums and galleries, gelato(!) and coffee) and then off to Sardegna to relax at the beach and explore the island.
This worked out really well. It was really nice to turn down the pace after 2-3 days of strolling in museums in Firenze. All in all one of the best vacations I've had. Travelling with Audun really adds to the enjoyment since he's a very positive character that really knows to appreciate life.

Beautiful Ponte Vecchio in Firenze. I highly recommend visiting Firenze if you haven't already done so!
Renting scooters and exploring the island. Very fun! The sense of freedoom and adventure was massive. This was easily the most fun I've had in a long, long time. Especially cool that we were able to rent 100cc scooters with a regular EU driving license. This made it possible to keep up with the general traffic. Still, we had some close encounters with impatient italian car drivers, but it all went well.
Designated place for the morning cappa in Cagliari. Illy espresso and ok milk steaming there. The best cappas we got however was in Firenze at "Gilli" (Piazza della Republica). The milk was perfectly textured and sweeet.
Coffee in the morning is great in Italy, but the breakfast they eat is ..eh..not that healthy. It's mostly stuff made of sugar, starch and regular flour. 10/12/2006 10:32:00 PM
