I've quickly jetted off to Naples with my bestest friend Lea who gifted me this trip for my birthday. It's Italian style loud and very beautiful with countless small alleyways that lead you to intimate, real-life television scenarios of everyday life. You'll pass a woman, leaning out her kitchen window gesticulating and speaking loudly with her friend while the radio is blasting out pop music that hasn't made it into the charts abroad.
We're staying with a bunch of Italians that have a flat overlooking the entire city all the way to the Island of Capri and we were welcomed with a cooking orgy of pulpo and local fish. The smell of the ocean is mixed with the neverending sound of honking horns and barking dogs. The crumbling walls and uneven pavements are the epitome of historic charm and around each corner is an exceptionally well dressed grandpa. Every time I travel I am dumbfounded by how different all the cities and places in the world are to each other. With that in mind, Napoli I love you!
