Snapchat Sunday – To Bologna

A couple days ago, I talked about the different styles of episodes that I’m now doing. One of the types of episodes I’m most looking forward to doing is Snapchat Sunday.

There are a lot of reasons I’m excited for it.

Firstly, I love Snapchat. I love all the little tools it has to help enhance your creativity. I also love how quick everything has to be. You don’t have time to muck around, you just have to hit the viewers with the story. No video clips are over 10 seconds, and the photos come fast and furious on Snapchat. It’s high energy, it’s raw, and it’s a lot of fun.

Secondly, I’m excited because it gives me a day where I don’t have to vlog. Each day, I’m working on at least 5 different social medias. It can be exhausting. So, on Sundays it’ll be fun to just focus on Snapchat and coming up with a cool story. And, it’ll be great not feeling like I have to worry about capturing every moment both on the camera and in Snapchat.

My first episode of Snapchat Sunday went like this:

About the Episode

I’m still on the #EuroFoodTrip and today was a travel day. The trip is a cooperation between two different regions in two different countries. So, the first couple days we were in Costa Brava, and today we popped over to Emilia Romagna, Italy.

It was a bit of a travel day, but there was also a lot of food involved. As one might expect when arriving to perhaps the richest food region in one of the best food-countries in the world, the food upon arrival was brilliant. We ate at a nice variety of restaurants in Costa Brava, including the luxury experience of eating at the world’s second best restaurant. However, getting some good, simple, yet extremely high quality food in Italy was a nice change.

Though it was raining a bit in Bologna, we headed to one of the tallest towers in the city, and climbed to the top. Since we were on a private tour of the tower, we had the views from the top to ourselves, and they were spectacular.

Some Photos from the Day

Though it was a travel day, I still managed to click off a couple stills throughout the day. Here are a few of them.

What’s Next?

Tomorrow we really dive into the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. We’re heading to a vineyard, doing a pasta cooking class, and of course eating far too much food.
