Hi friend! I’m Lyndsay, a travel blogger and your new travel BFF. After discovering the best restaurants, shopping, and Broadway shows in New York City as a licensed tour guide, I moved across the ocean to Italy. Now, I spend my days exploring these stunning, historic cities, learning the Italian language, and enjoying cups of cappuccino (but only before 11 AM!) I specialize in history-focused travel and local experiences, and I’m passionate about giving recommendations to help you get the most out of your travels. When you’re visiting a new-to-you place, I want to make sure you know the in’s and out’s of getting around, the history, the art, and, of course, the top restaurants to try local cuisine. Let me know if you need any specific recommendations, or tried something or some place new and loved it! I’ll be here ⭐️
