How to Order Coffee in Italy + Will Starbucks Succeed in Milan?

Will Starbucks Succeed in Milan? Why aren’t there any Starbucks in Italy? It’s a question that comes up often when visiting as most travelers are used to seeing one on every corner these days.

13 Helpful Things To Know Before You Visit New York City

I’m guessing this is because New York is fast-paced and residents are always on the move, so there is no time to admire the skyscrapers. I’m not one to get too obsessed over blending in or making sure I don’t look like a tourist (after all – I usually AM a tourist!), but I do think…

Tips for Riding Trains in Italy (and avoiding an emotional meltdown!)

Italy is my happy place and you will never hear me say a bad word about this fantastic country except when it involves train stations! I suppose the stress that comes with foreign train systems isn’t unique to Italy, but without a doubt trying to ride a train in a foreign country has to be in my top ten most stressful activities! That said, the trains in Italy (or all of Europe for that matter) are efficient, relaxing once you…
