Dolce Far Niente

Remember “Dolce Far Niente” from Eat, Pray Love? It means the sweetness of doing nothing. Italians love to live life. They have a great culture, better and healthier food than we do and great wine. Most of their cities have little crime (pick pockets). A BLOG, “The sweetness of Doing Nothing” explains what this is from the BLOGgers point of view.

 

If we Americans want to truly understand this, we have to live it! When you go to Italy, don’t look to be waited on. Be a tourists but be a local as well. When having a glass of wine or something to eat, sit back and observe Italian life all around you. Do not be afraid to partake in it. Stop locals and try to talk with them. This will change your vacation in a very positive way.

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and
    visual appearance. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera.
    Excellent Blog!
