A few weeks ago, friends from NYC (now London expats!) decided to come visit for a weekend. Always ever-so excited to speak English and be with friends from home, we couldn’t wait for them to arrive. We planned on spending the weekend doing a day trip to Florence and a day trip to Parma.
I will (hopefully) let the pictures speak for themselves (no witty, smart-ass comments this round) but Parma, hands down, has the BEST food in North Italy… at least for us in the Emilia-Romagna region. One of the greatest things we’ve realized about living in Bologna is that we are a quick, and cheap, train ride away from some of the best cities in Italy. Doesn't really get any better than that.
Needless to say, the weekend came and went in the blink-of-an-eye, and of course we were sad to see our friends leave… but we will meet up again, in another city, for another adventure.
