Poolside @ Hotel Intercontinental….such a shame no more for this summer

August 26, 2010

Again due to my intense traveling I missed the monthly happy hour at Hotel Intercontinental in Geneva. It occurred every last Wednesday of the month in summer. And of course as Geneva doesn’t know glorious summers, they had only three… Happy that I managed to attempt to at least the 3rd and last one… We […]

Cafe Delux @ Hotel Metropole Rooftop in Geneva

August 21, 2010

Everybody in Geneva knows it by now that if you want to have a great view of Geneva, chill and drink some bubbles you go to the rooftop of Hotel Metropole. My friend who is renting and managing it until September 4th, made a trial last year for few nights, and when she saw it […]

Boucherie du Molard, the jewelry store where they sell meat…

August 14, 2010

My boys, who are my best friends from NY, are in Geneva for the first time. It took me a while to bring them in town, and I have suspicions that a little lady of few months was the real reason of their visit 😉 As we wanted to have the little lady with us, […]

Mia Mensa Istanbul…

August 11, 2010

With heat wave still present in Istanbul, choosing our lunch spot was a challenge. Smokers don’t want to sit inside in the AC, and everybody wants some wind… so we ended up at “Mia Mensa” which literally means “My Catering” in Kurucesme. It’s terrace is literally on the water and just next to Istanbul’s famous […]

more of Istanbul…

August 10, 2010

I met a friend for lunch at “Masa” restaurant which is in “Istinye Park” (one of the newest and most beautiful mall in Istanbul) where I had a beef salad…. Under the heat you cannot eat anything else believe me. Masa is one of the happening spots for lunch since it opened. Off course when […]

Istanbul by the Bosphorus

August 9, 2010

Whenever I come to Istanbul I stay at “Radisson Blu Hotel” in Ortakoy. All my friends know that it is my second house. I like it because the rooms are fine and Ortakoy, where it is located, is the center of lots of summer bars, restaurants and cafes. “House Café” which is literally few steps […]

Istanbul in Summer!!!

August 8, 2010

I have spent my first day in Istanbul with my mother and sister. We did some shopping and from there we went to have a lunch at “Papermoon”. The Milanese restaurant that opened in Istanbul, and since had a great success. It is located by “Akmerkez”, which is one of the first shopping malls in […]

“L’Enoteca Marlucci” in Pietrasanta, delicious!!!!

August 4, 2010

On my quest to find the beach where I had incredible food last year, I found another one. The restaurant of the “Bagno Angelo”. You could see that the food was good, cause it was full… with locals. We started with a focaccia and some salad… you know to pretend that we are healthy 😉 […]

Sunday in Forte

August 2, 2010

My second day in Forte dei Marmi started with a late breakfast followed by a great day at the beach. The beach that my friends spend the day is called “Bagno Beppe”. In Forte dei Marmi you rent a cabana and a area on the beach for the season. They give you a table some […]

Few days in Forte dei Marmi

August 1, 2010

Two days ago, tired of waiting for the dates of my friends for Turkey, I decided to go to Forte dei Marmi. The best way to go there would have been to fly to Pisa, but as there were no direct flights, I decided to fly to Florence and rent a car for Forte (which […]
