It had been on my bucket list for some time to take a cooking class, especially while being here in Italy, I knew I couldn’t leave without having done one. While researching different places to take a cooking course, I was introduced to Bon Appetour through a friend. Bon Appetour is a food sharing experience in which you are typically welcomed into a home of a local. The host then prepares a meal for you, as if you are in a restaurant. There is another option in which you can choose a cooking course where you make the meal together! There is also wine tasting available and other unique dining options for those that want a different dining experience.
This past weekend we went to visit a place that has been on our list for some time now, The Acquedotto Romano. The Roman Acqueducts were originally constructed to bring water from sources back into homes and fountains many, many years ago. We originally found out about the Acqueducts when it appeared in a very popular Italian movie we watched, La Grande Bellezza.
There has been a lot of chit chat lately, especially after the recent elections, about people jokingly moving to another country. This, often times, is something that seems so far out of reach and not something most people actually pursue, unless they are moving for work or the military. Well believe it not, there is quite an impressive amount of expats living all over the world because they choose to.
In fact, being an expat in a major European city, like Rome, is not un-common. Expats make up about 6% of the total Italian population. Although, don’t confuse expat with the term immigrant, which is very different than an expat, and took me a while to realize. Although this is a debatable topic. Read more about this here.
