Ohh how I miss Italy. Tropea is a hidden gem my friends.. 20 euros a night for an apartment-style villa & being the only tourists on the beach & amazing italian food = priceless combination. Tropea is a tiny place (8000 people) and very few speak English, thus I had to dig up my Italian knowledge (learned during exchange semester in Milan) and be a translator for the weekend. I’m not going to lie, I loved it.. and it made me realize how much I miss Italy. The lifestyle is just so laid back.. it’s very refreshing and makes you wonder if enough people (I’m looking at all you North Americans) ever really take the time to sit back enjoy life like the Italians do. Here are some pics to show for it:
