GELATO in florence

 

gelato

GELATO. an italian style ice cream. THE HOlY GRAIL.

EVERYWHERE YOU TURN THERE IS GELATO & FOR GOOD REASON, ITS AMAZING DUHH.  I STILL QUESTION HOW EVERYONE IS SKINNY I MEAN YEAH YOU WALK EVERYWHERE BUT HELLO I WALKED EVERYWHERE & NO I WAS NOT SKINNY. I MEAN MAYBE IT WAS THAT I ATE IT ALMOST EVERY DAY I WAS IN FLORENCE NO EXAGGERATION BUT I MEAN I HAD TO ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS I COULD WHILE I WAS THERE.

MY FAVORITE GELATO WAS FROM Festival del Gelato & Gelateria dei Neri. Now dont get me wrong those were my favorite places, but I definitely ate some from manyyyy other places. My favorite flavors were nocciola (hazelnut) mint (not all mints though) and nutella.  Towards the end of my trip I did start to really enjoy coconut & lemon because it was refreshing.

WE WOULD GET GELATO WHEN: WE WERE WALKING AROUND & EXPLORING, WHEN WE WERE HUNGRY, WHEN WE WERE BORED,  WHEN WE WERE ABOUT TO PREGAME, WHEN WE WERE DRUNK, YEAH JUST ABOUT WHENEVER.

OH AND DID I MENTION YOU CAN GET IT ON A WAFFLE?IMG_3037

WHAT IS ALSO PRETTY EXCITING, THIS HAPPENS TO BE 1 OF MY FAVORITE GELATO PLACES .  Gelateria dei Neri.  IM NOT ASHAMED TO SAY OK I AM, THE GUY KNEW US THERE. BUT I MEAN, MAYBE WE JUST STUCK OUT & ARE NOTICABLE PEOPLE. A GIRL CAN DREAM RIGHT?

IS IT EMBARRASING THAT I ALREADY HAD GELATO THAT DAY, HAD JUST FINISHED DINNER & WAS ON THE BACK TO THE APARTMENT TO PREGAME & WE WENT OUT OF THE WAY IN THE RAIN TO GET SOME MORE? OOPS.

I ALWAYS TAKE PICTURES OF FOOD BUT GELATO BECAME SO EVERYDAY & REGULAR TO ME THAT I STOPPED TAKING PICTURES OF IT EVENTUALLY. IN MY MIND WHEN I STOP TAKING PICTURES BECAUSE ITS SO NORMAL IS BAD.

EMPTYAND YES WE ALWAYS FINISHED IT. OUR RULE: NO LEFTOVERS NO MATTER WHAT. NO MATTER HOW FULL YOU ARE, YOU MUST FINISH EVERYTHING. (im not sure if im kidding or not?)
