2020 Update: This post is from an old blog of mine and was transferred in the site move. I’m leaving it up for posterity – back in 2013, I definitely had no idea I’d end up living in Rome permanently.
I’m sitting here wrapped in up in wooly layers, slurping a hot Ribena. Feeling so very cosy it’s hard to believe just how blue the sky was a couple of weeks ago on a trip to Rome. I’d been itching to go away ever since the trip I made to Greece last year so a weekend break was certainly a relief from the 9-5 routine!
Usually before a holiday I’m quite the planner. I enjoy the ritual of buying a book (Lonely Planet, always) selecting some sights to see and swotting up on what’s good to eat and how to order it, or at least attempt to! This time, my friend Kate and I had both been to Rome before so we did our planning in super-fast time by quizzing ourselves about pasta shapes and their names. Very thorough.
Here are our snaps from the Eternal City.
