I’ve arrived in New York to start another fashionweek season which means summer is officialy over. On the upside, it kind of continues in New York with the same temperatures and shining sun.
I’ve decided to keep it easy with my travels this summer and went to Italy again, to Sicily which I’ve been to many times and for a few days to Ischia.
Ischia was new to me, a last minute escape that wasn’t insanely expensive in the height of August. If you’ve been to Capri and the Amalfi coast you will certainly miss the glamour here, the island offers a more raw and authentic experience.
I stayed at the Monastery hotel, a 16th century former monastery with the most incredible views and beautiful interiors. I also loved the garden where the chef picks the fruits and vegetables for dinner.
The second half of my trip was to Siclily, Taormina and Noto. I’ve written about it before so I’m not doing the full travel report here, I hope to do the full island tour one day and that will be worth the report. What makes me come back to Sicily are the people, the green landscape, the views, the Baroque cities and maybe most importantly the food. I’m dreaming of the fresh pasta, the almond Granita from Caffe Sicila and figs.
Here comes my summer mood board to dream on a bit.
