Michelle was my first 'blogger friend' and it's been so fun watching her develop her photography through her blog, MY Creative. Last year, Michelle and her soon-to-be husband Tim moved to Trieste, in Northern Italy, so this week's three things have a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Buon Appetito!

EAT: Gelato - we try (mostly unsuccessfully) to limit gelato to the weekends. Currently, my favourite flavour is the pinolata (pine nut with vanilla, tastes like candy popcorn) from Zambolli.

DO: Visiting an osmiza. They hark back to the days when Trieste was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire and there are a whole bunch dotted around the area. Open for a few days/weeks a year, they sell their own fresh produce (cheese, meat, boiled eggs, wine, etc.) and are marked by a bunch of branches hanging from the building; the freshness of the branches is indicative of how long the osmiza has been open!

LISTEN: Paolo Nutini's new album. I've always loved his voice and I'm enjoying the bit of funk sound it has. 

I think it's about time for a blogger's retreat in Trieste, don't you? Cheese, meat, gelato - all sounds good to me. Thanks Michelle!
