I Love Upstate

My dogs are barking! I didn’t have a business dinner tonight so I went for a walk…for about 5 hours. OK, I admit that I took a short break for some wine & pizza…and gelato…

Mascarpone gelato on the bottom of my dish and the nutella gelato on the top of my dish. Heaven.

I walked so far that I eventually walked right out of Bologna. I was so busy taking pictures of doorknobs (yes, really!) that I wandered too far. Completely lost and there wasn’t a taxi to be had. Finally stopped in another gelato shop (tempted to get another one, but didn’t – where did that willpower come from?) and asked for directions. That’s when I found out that I had walked right out of Bologna. Oops. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to get back into Bologna and about a half hour beyond that to get to the Piazza and find a taxi stand. My feet! Ouchie!

Along the way I found a grocery store and bought coffee, nutella, biscotti and a silly present for the Fiance.

Ouchie. My feet!

Ok, yeah, yeah, yeah gorgeous old buildings…but can we talk about these wellies!??!?!

The shop was closed but I took tons of pics from the windows, everything in this store was simply awesome. It was like Anthropologie on steroids.

Feel free to hate me – I bought a train ticket to Milan today. Holy carp. Milan!
