Observations from an Eataliano
Butchering the language
Eating up life
Helping others find their Italy!


Go ahead, make their day!

Want to make someone’s day? Pick someone, a friend or a stranger – it doesn’t matter. Buy them an espresso. Pick up their tab at the bar. It’s only a euro, (about a dollar US). The sentiment will not go un-noticed, nor forgotten. 

It can be an invisible act to pay things forward, or a public one, to start a conversation.

It’s a token gesture, but when it happens, it changes the dynamic, and the mood. Even the barista will take note of your action and give you an extra smile.

It seems to happen more to me in Italy and because of that; I do it more for others. I don’t know why. People are more generous, coffee is more reasonably priced (a single euro!). 

Give it a try. Make their day!
