vintage tour in Val d'Orcia

Val d'Orcia with a rented lambretta

that's on top of my wish list: to be able to travel with a lambretta anywhere we want. yes, we can drive our own or ship it, but we don't aways have the time to do something like that (not to mention the costs). and to rent an original vintage scooter is almost impossible. almost.

visiting Tuscany on a vintage Italian scooter

the dreamer Dario fought the impossible founding Vintage Tours, an agency renting vespas, lambrettas and vintage cars in one of the most beautiful region of Italy, Tuscany.

moodboard | spring smell

a few things that have been inspiring me lately: 

1. spring is my favourite season. as i have said before, it feels like the opening of lambretta season to me. i can't wait for more and longer rides, outdoorsy weekends and picnics. 
the lambretta picnic picture comes from here.
2. due to wedding planning {i feel repetitive, please let me know when i start to be annoying and i'll cut the wedding talks} i've been spending a remarkable amount of time on Pinterest, where i fall in love everyday with anything that involves flowers, like this tutorial "3 ways to make your home smell like spring", or this lovely lambretta with a flower basket. 
3. i took five calligraphy lessons, for five weeks. when i signed up for the course, i daydreamed about writing the invitations with beautiful italics lettering. then, i found out that hours and hours of exercise are mandatory for the kind of results that i had in my mind. so, i used my own calligraphy for the invites, but still love to browse beautiful calligraphy on Pinterest, like this one.
4. i've met the tear calendar of Flow Magazine from the Instagram feed of Sara, fell in love instantly and simply had to buy it. now the minutes that go from the moment i get up to the moment when the coffee is ready are even more special cause i can discover the new day's lovely illustration and words.

still looking for more spring themed inspirations! have you found anything special these days?

"i diari" on the Lambretta Club d'Italia magazine #1 {in italiano!}

this article originally appeared in Notiziario Lambretta Issue No.46 October-December 2015 printed by Lambretta Club d'Italia
