The color of New Year’s Eve and First and New Year Day for Good Luck, in Italy, is RED!!
So to wish you an amazing 2015 rich of all beautiful moment I will dedicate to you The red cake tower: The chocolate and beet-roots are amazing together.
Last day of the year, two friends are coming from Sweden to celebrate the New Year’s Eve all together in the beautiful Rome! Whoohooo! But here is brrr-cold-brrr. We will celebrate, no matter what.
We hope we will find a nice cafe-restaurant and going to see Rome in the most confusing and fascinating moment of the year. A lot of Christmas lights, a lot of people, chaos and beauty.
As usual I will try to figure out, in the end, how was this 2014:
this last year it has been fast and amazing. I did many things, sometimes too many. I met a lot of new people, some of them are friends now, some are already gone.
It has not been a bad or good year, there have been happy moments, and bad too. I have been traveling and I working. I relaxed and I ran and ran and ran. But in the end I felt so alive! In the end, I worked to build my future. I tried to enjoy friends, family and my city and I want to thanks all of them to be there with me, every time.
