Postcard from Rome
June 30, 2014 add a comment
I fell in love with the Eternal City when my school took us on a trip there as I was 12. Since then, Rome has always felt like home to me. I love walking down the streets, getting lost and speaking italian with my friends. When we decided to go to France for a month I just knew I had to stop for a few days in this enchanting city. Solal and I have been to Rome many times since we’re together (it’s been more than 7 years now!) but we just can’t get enough of it. There’s always something new to discover: a charming little church, mysterious back streets or an amazing cheap restaurant that make the most wonderful margherita ($4 pizza anyone?)… If you ever go to Europe, Rome should definitely be on the top of your list!

A caffe, a few vespa and the Foro Traiano (Trajan’s Forum)

And that’s…my happy gelato face!

Breathtaking views of Rome from the Passeggiata del Gianicolo (Janiculum hill walk)

Do I really need to introduce this one? 😉 That’s the famous Colosseo (Colosseum)!
