After a fantastic 2016 at Cookie HQ Jenny and I finally got to celebrate our October nuptials with a Christmas break. After buttoning up the shop and a quick dash to Cork to the family farm we flew to Italy for nearly three weeks of exploring, eating and relaxing. Pure bliss! We explored Rome, the Amalfi Coast, Umbria and Tuscany. Italy really is several countries in one. The scenery was breathtaking and the people are as nice there are they are here at home. One fun surprise – the whole coast was lit up with fireworks on New Year’s Eve. It was festive on a whole new level.
Italy is such a beautiful country with great traditions in food, coffee and wine. It was the perfect place for us to go. Jenny got to realise her Italian foodie fantasies while I soaked up the history and culture of the place. Of course we had to do loads of ‘research’ and ate every type of baked good we came across. Washed down with amazing Italian coffee and Tuscan wine, of course. Enjoy a few of our favourite foodie snaps here.
