One year and two days ago, I took a plane and flew into a new chapter of my life. It was a somewhat hasty decision. I was at my 6th semester of my bachelor in international hospitality management, and on the 7th semester, I was required to take a 3-months internship. I have a few passions in my life. One is food. Another is Italy. … Continue reading It all started one year ago…
In only four days, I will be on my way to go back to Italy, to Campi Flegrei. About six months ago I left, after having spent 3 months as an intern in connection to my education in International Hospitality Management. It was 3 months which greatly affected my life. It was a huge challenge and an amazing experience. Although, by the end of my … Continue reading The aliens are coming – watch out Campi Flegrei!
It’s been almost two months since I left Italy and Campi Flegrei, and during this time I have not been active on this blog. Some might think it is because the purpose of the blog was to document my stay down there, and therefore lost its purpose as soon as I left. But the truth is that I didn’t feel like writing. I think one … Continue reading Culture shock
Many things have been different for me in Naples and Campi Flegrei, than what I am used to in Denmark. One thing I always focus on when I go to a café a restaurant, is the state of the restroom. I think it says a lot about the place and their considerations for the customers’ experience. For me there is nothing worse than a yucky … Continue reading The toilet rating system
Food and meals are a very important part of the Neapolitan’s culture – this was clear to me from the beginning, and I’ve been fortunate enough to take part in real family weekend lunches as well as dinners, and it’s a very special experience. And it might sound strange, but sharing a meal is very different here from what it is in Denmark. And since it … Continue reading Danish cooking in Italy!
Today is the first day of my final week in Campi Flegrei. Monday next week, I am taking the train to Rome, where I will spend a few days sightseeing before taking a flight back to Copenhagen, Denmark. I cannot wait! There are no words to describe the many amazing experiences I’ve had the past 3 months, but there are even less words to describe … Continue reading The final week..
It’s Saturday. I don’t have any plans. I am home alone. Why not bake a cake, I thought? It could be fun, I thought. How wrong I was.. I start out by going to the supermarket to get the stuff I need for this pie-like cake, with an egg-white-and-nuts bottom, then a yoghurt cream, fresh fruit on top and chocolate sprinkled over the whole thing. … Continue reading All I wanted to do was bake a cake…
You’ve probably never heard about Malazè unless you are from Campi Flegrei. Even then you might not have. But this is the main reason for why I have come here. Malazè is a EnoGastronomic festival with 10 days of events in the area of Campi Flegrei within four main themes; Myths and history, Nature, Flavours and Archaeology. All these events showcase the area with a … Continue reading Malazè
Today I realised how wide my interests spread, when I’m just browsing the internet. Scrolling down my Facebook wall this morning, I found myself clicking on 3 very different links, that I will now share with you. They are pretty good representatives of what I usually will find interesting. First one was from The Local Italy. I like this site, because it gives me news about … Continue reading The links I click on
Italy is an amazing place to be. Definitely. But it’s not all beaches, and islands and wonderful food. I like to think I have a lot of good friends back in Denmark. And I hope they would describe me as open-minded, outgoing, friendly and sociable. That’s what I thrive to be. I love being around other people and making new friends. Well, going to a … Continue reading Isolation
