Part Three: Beating the August Heat in Italy through Proper Hydration

August 23, 2012

It’s important to stay hydrated. Otherwise, you’ll die. Since drinking bottled water means that you hate the earth and care not about your carbon footprint (you know, being from Seattle and all, blah, blah), we choose other ways to hydrate.

Prosecco. Always Prosecco.

Beer works. But not Italian beer, which is gross. A nice Belgian lager at the trattoria across the street from our Venice hotel is just perfect on a hot evening!

Granita totally counts. Especially when the best granita in Florence is 10 meters from our apartment.

Did I mention Prosecco?

Look at that. There’s Prosecco in Sorrento, too! And Limoncello (not pictured).

There’s also beer in Sorrento. Again, icky on the Italian beer.

A tacky souvenir fan helps when there’s no beer or Prosecco. Please note: I’ve been in a stripes phase and I totally bought this shirt BEFORE I even got to Italy. After one day in Venice, I realize that I look like a complete MORON wearing it. So, it’s being retired until we’re back in the states.

    But the bag and the fan are fabulous together!

      Love that bag! John likes it, too, because it’s big enough that I can lug his crap around, too. 🙂
