Pisa: A New Side of Italy

by Sarah

My friend Fiona and I spent last night in Pisa with her friend Elizabetta, who showed us around the town. We of course visited the Leaning Tower for a quick pic, but then we hit the beach, had a dinner of Apperitivos over Campari cocktails and visited her friends’ art studio. The guy who owned the studio produced art and Italian rap music unlike the Renaissance style and pop music I have grown accustomed to here. It was refreshing to see this new side of Italian culture on my last day in the country. I decided to share a little of the art and music here.

Elisabetta and her friend Cassandra over drinks on the beach. The two girls had an energy and free spirit I rarely saw in Italy.


About sistersbailey

We are Perrin and Sarah Bailey, collectively known as “The Sisters Bailey”. The moniker was born out of a crazy weekend at the 2009 New Orleans Jazz Fest and it was the first time we had ever been referred to as one unit. We grew up in Alexandria, VA together and then separated for college - Perrin to The University of Pennsylvania and Sarah to Northwestern University – and somehow landed together in New York after graduation. It was in the midst of the hustle of Manhattan that we became friends for the first time in years. Somehow we landed jobs in the same industry - Sarah worked in marketing at HBO and Perrin managed creative digital promotions for her media agency’s main client, Disney - just three blocks from one another. One day we decided to leave our jobs, sell our belongings and travel abroad with a backpack and a collective savings of $10K. The stories of our continuing adventures and those of other fearless travelers are here to inspire you.
