Have you heard of the Genovese Pasta?


So over the long weekend, we went on a road trip from Zurich to the town where this pasta sauce (and prosciutto!) was first made famous: Genova, Italy!

We stayed at Holiday Inn and the view from our window was a huge docking port.



We explored the alleys of Genova with rows and rows of quaint shops by foot. We had good ol’ gelato at MuraMura. We saw how they made caramel waffles from scratch. We took hundreds of selfies. We bought leather goods and trinkets. We made fun of each other’s antics. Played limbo rock using the GoPro stick. Went inside churches. Had fun inside the abandoned container van displayed at the huge park. It was a good stopover leading to our real destination: The Cote D’ Azur region in France.
