Italy is currently in phase 2 of the Coronavirus Spread Prevention Plan, which means that any kind of individually practiced sport is now officially allowed. Going for a boat ride on the Arno River (Florence) with Ponte Santa Trinita in the background has become more special than ever.. Italy is still sleeping, which makes us even more aware of her beauty❤️ Photo by @maybeimout • • • #firenze #florence #arnoriver #italygram #touroperatoritaly #italyiloveyou #italianplaces #italystaystrong #italy #italylovers #italytravel #andratuttobene #italylockdown #italytogether #istayhome #iorestoacasa #coronavirusitaly #prayforitaly #futuretravel #italy_vacations #roadstorome #roadstorometours #roadstoromeprivatetours #tourwithus #privatetours #travelitaly #learnwithus #privateguidedtours #privatetouritaly

With international and even domestic travel all but ground to a halt in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the question on everyone's lips is: what is travel going to be like once everything is back to "normal"? 🚆 Will it become unaffordable to fly? Will museums limit the number of people who can enter at a time? Will prices on everything skyrocket making travel once again a luxury for the elite? Or will airlines and other tourist providers offer amazing deals to lure reluctant travelers back into the sky and around the world? ✈️ We tackle these (frankly terrifying) questions on this week's episode, and we also discuss the potential benefits that could arise from the decline of mass tourism. 🎧 Find Episode 315 {THE FUTURE OF TRAVEL} by clicking the link in our profile or simply by searching for #thebittersweetlife wherever you get your podcasts. 🎙 Follow us at @thebittersweetlifepodcast and @tiffanyparksrome . . . . . #thebittersweetlifepodcast #traveltalk #inthetimeofcorona #postcovidtravel #thefutureoftravel #italylockdown #wanderlust #newepisode #authorsofinstagram #podcastinterview #podcastersofinstagram #podcastlove #podcastsofinstagram #podcasting #internetradio #expatlife #livingabroad #expatpodcast #repat #trypod #instapodcast #instapodcasting #expatriate #moveabroad #podverse #podmosphere #caravaggio #episodepreview #podcastpreview

Looking through the eyes of a pessimist, I see Italy being held together by clothes pegs, and a long and steep way ahead. An optimist would see serenity, spring flowers blooming and a united Italy. As a realist, I’m just happy to walk the streets of my beautiful city again and I’m ready to embrace the many uncertainties that lie ahead.

Take a ride with us through one of Florence’s favorite overlooks! Yesterday was a gorgeous spring Sunday so people were out with family and friends (all keeping social distance and with masks!), happy to be able to get outside with their loved ones.

#italylockdown day 62 The making of #arancini (#arancine? I'll never know) with bizarre companions.

An oldie but a goodie. ❤️ This photo was taken during the very first year I lived in Rome. My mom @pattymorosic came to visit for a month. She got a metro pass and explored the city every day while I was at work. In fact there are still a few places in Rome she’s been to but I haven’t! ❣️ Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.

First spritz since the lockdown! We can now get them “to go” from some of the bars around town. It’s a good way to contribute to the struggling establishments, and if you were in the quarantine alone, (like I was) a spritz in a piazza gives a welcome sense of shedding isolation. In fact it’s a magical concoction that makes you feel completely hopeful about your life again! 😁 Viva lo spritz! 🤩 • #spritz #italiansdoitbetter #cocktails #destination_italy #italiancocktail #yourflorence #hiddenflorence #florenceitaly #firenzemadeintuscany #girlswhoexplore #piazzadellapassera #cntraveler #guardiantravel #nytimestravel #florencetravelguide #italytravel #bbctravel #expatlife #travelitaly #expatitaly #italylockdown #italymagazine #italylovers #italytourism #italianlifestyle #expatsinitaly #italianstyle #lifeafterlockdown #hopeful

“#newnormal - tests” this first #sundaymorning of #phase2 in Florence. People queuing in front of shops to buy Sunday lunch, drink a take away espresso or buy Sunday “pastarelle”. Everything seemed quiet and ordered to me: Italians seem to have understood the new rules and they look very disciplined at least in #florence. I even noticed more smiles behind masks! Masks, gloves and sanitizer gel are available at the entrance of every shop and the lines move very fast. I hope this will help to start our new life again 🤞 #florence #phase2 #fase2 #italylockdown #italy🇮🇹 #italytravel #travelblogger #travelphotography #shopsreopening

#throwback back to spring 2016 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀ I had just joined @888poker_official and London was my first ever #888pokerlive stop. I managed to come 3rd in the Main Event (score!) while doing the PR stuff to announce joining the ambassador team. ⠀⠀ @doronzy gave me a great welcome and it’s been a great ride ever since. I can’t wait for live poker to be a thing again.

This week Italians were able to exercise for the first time in eight weeks, as long as they wore masks and respected social distancing. It was just one of the moves the country took to start to lift strict lockdown measures. People were also allowed to visit their relatives, but not friends, and restaurants began serving takeaway food as the curbs imposed to suppress one of Europe’s worst coronavirus outbreaks were slowly eased. However the daily number of fatalities continue to rise, the third highest number of officially recorded deaths behind the United States and the UK.

Been messing around with my camera a lot more and took a few pictures of these two today. I’m just really taking time to learn all the things I can while Garrett gets so many days off. Side note: I cannot believe Coraline is going to be four on Monday. 😭
