To get whisked away on a spontaneous roadtrip from Milano throught Tuscany to the Amalfi coast with a day in Napoli, was such a beautiful treat
Italy is close to my heart ever since I lived in Milano as a young student. The food, the life, the air, pace, art and glorious language that rolls off the tongue like creamy gelato, speaks to me ever so seductively.
Oh, how this little trip soothed my stressed soul and filled my belly with tasty and simple Italian food.
I’ll give you more photos from the trip soon, but this was just a teaser to let you know I have not forgotten about you, I’m just a wee bit in over my head these days with work;)
We’ll spend some time on my island in Norway and then slowly make our way down to Rome by train, watching the spring-filled european landscape glide by.
So what is it exactly I’ve been up to lately that is making my days so short and filled to the brim?
Some product shots for food packaging that will hit the shelves of health shops in the Scandinavian countries soon.
Food and styling for another health product company.
Editorial shoot for a fun food magazine.
A shoot for a Hotel and Spa on a beautiful island close to Sweden.
And amidst it all I woke up to this wonderful news one morning!
I felt so honored and happy to be among so many other wonderful food lovers, photographers, chefs and stylists.
I may or may not have done a little dance in the kitchen that day.
I’ve absolutely loved working on all these different things, getting it all ready before my month in Rome coming up next week.
It really is so satisfying to be able to create different visual stories for clients related to food and or travel, and if you toss in art, some of the projects I’ll be working on in Rome will have a sweet combo of all three.
If you follow my instagram feed you may have seen a photo or two from the italian road-trip, and I promise I’ll keep posting new photos on my feed as I hop on the train and head south again.
May I just say before I sign out tonight that I love reading your comments that cheer me on when it rains and keeps me smiling when the sun is poking its head out.
I love getting to know you through your instagram feeds, blogs and emails seeing what life is like in your part of the world.
Isn’t it really cool to be able to be so connected even if we live miles a part?
Now I’m off to bed dreaming of my days in beautiful Tuscany.
(more photos to come soon)
