Got to Love Italy

10 Jul

I love this Italian saying;

“Il Bel Far Niente”  

Translated to read- The joy of doing nothing.

Call me lazy, call me crazy, but the Italian’s have an incredible way of looking at the world. When I was studying abroad in Florence,  I often found myself rushing to class in the morning and eating biscotti on the local bus to school. Typical fast food American mentality….I got the strangest looks from Italians, young and old- more or less saying “can this crazy American just enjoy his food and not be in such a rush?”

Enjoy the little pleasures in life and you will live “La Dolce Vita”- the sweet life!
