Italy Photo Diary 🇮🇹

hey cool peopleee ☺️

from the title you may be wondering

“hreem you’re in italy? why? when?”

and the sad truth is that I am not in Italy and instead am in a country with 44° heat, sandstorms, and humidity 😍😍

However, I was in Italy around 2 years ago now and it was so much fun. The food was like heavennn, it was delicious, but I don’t think that comes as a surprise to anyone. it was also so much prettier than I expected?! That makes no sense but it’s true. Like everywhere you look is so beautiful and it’s hard to believe that it was actually real and the pictures you see on Pinterest aren’t lying. Italy is one of the only exceptions to the “picture never do real life any justice” rule.

I took so so many pretty pictures which I for some reason didn’t post anywhere (why tho??? they’re so cool?!!) and I decided that I really want to share them so this is me posting a bunch of those pictures because who really needs a reason. It can remind us of what we’re not experiencing right now!!!

okay I need to stop with the fake enthusiasm and all that.

can you believe I’m properly posting my photography for the first time in a year or two, just like what my blog was originally meant to be about! It’s really an achievement for me, honestly. plus I’m actually quite proud of the pictures I took, like wow I’m a proper blogger.

let me present to you…

and there you have it.

Hreem’s Italy Photo Diary

Making this post made me reminisce on simpler, pandemic-free times. It also made me super hungry because I had so many food pics to go through. I didn’t add all of them because at some point they get slightly repetitive.

I hope you enjoyed reading the small amount of text at the top of this post and looking at pictures of the extremely beautiful Positano, Capri, Naples, and (13 year-old) me ☺️☺️ It’s so fun to have a place to share pictures I took because photography really is a passion of mine and right now I don’t have anything interesting to take pictures of!!!

Talk to me in the comments about whether you’ve been to Italy or not. If not, do you want to visit? What is your dream place to travel to? What is your favourite place you’ve ever been to and why?

Song rec of the post: my boy by Billie Eilish because I was at the peak of my Billie Eilish phase when we were in Italy and it brings back those vibes. plus the song is pretty fun.

Love and hugs,

Trip to Gstaad

Me in the snowww

Hey everyone!

This post is long overdue but I forgot that I had already written it and I didn’t post it!

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will know that I like to travel a lot and last year I really got to explore the world more than I used to and that is amazing. So, on the 17th of December (ages ago) me and my family left to Switzerland and took a few trains which took altogether 3 HOURS! But I had a new book to read so it was all good 👍🏼 The view on the train was beautiful and when we got there there was a fair amount of snow; not too much but just enough.

On the second day (I think) we went skiing and it really started to snow a lot and the whole town looked beautiful. But of course every day after that there was rain so it just washed away all the snow and it was gross and muddy and ew.

One of the highlights was going up a mountain called Glacier 3000 which had the softest, most powdery snow I’ve ever touched ❄️ Except it was really, really, really cold and my toes actually went numb. Having hot chocolate after that was amazing.

On the second-last day I got to meet my bestie, Noelle who some of you may have read about in my first few posts. All we really did was walk around the town and chat but the weather was nice and beautiful (except for the tiny bit of drizzle which turned into a lot of rain).

On the last day (the 24th!) we had a bit of time before our flight so my family decided to walk around Geneva and do a bit of shopping since there weren’t many shops in Gstaad. I got a nice, pinkish-purple, knitted top which is sooo pretty. You might see it in a future blog post 😉 After that, we had to go back to the airport and go back home.

What place in the world do you really want to visit?
