The first few days Kai and I were in Italy, we had some work to wrap up, so weekday-life was relatively unexciting. Our day would start with a long sunrise walk, followed by some muesli and tea for breakfast. Our mornings were filled with work, followed by a quick al fresco lunch, and some more calls in the afternoon, before we *finally* slowly made our way down to the pool for the hottest hour of the day, between 5-6pm. Our villa has a pool that overlooks the nearby town, San Gusme, and it’s a dream to lounge by in the shade with an Aperol Spritz (or white wine or mojito – we’re not picky around here), cooling off and maybe going for a quick dip, before heading back up to the house and cooking a slow meal for dinner once it’s a bit cooler in the evening. It’s a simple life, but wow – it’s also a wonderful one.
