Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 2 – Where The Romans Once Were

The travel diary continues! Firstly, I apologise for the long break in-between this post and my last post regarding my not-so-recent trip to Rome (which was over a month ago, gosh). This month has been particularly busy and even with the seemingly longer days, the hours never multiply but stay the same! However, I’ve managed to fit in a bit of spare time to continue this travel series and wrap it up! This isn’t the last post by all means, but one needs to finish what one starts. Let’s focus on ending Day 2 first shall we? If you missed my last 2 posts of this series: Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi  Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What the Romans Mades + Detail Envy Roma Lunchin’ From where I left off in my last post, we were heading for lunch just so we could savour some energy and rest our feet a bit from all the walking so far! We came across a small cafe which was …

Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What The Romans Made + Detail Envy

Hello beautiful people! Today, I’m continuing my Rome Diary posts! We are onto Day 2, so if you missed Day 1, feel free to catch up here. I took a whole load of photos in Rome so don’t be surprised if this ends up being photo-heavy. In these posts, I try my best to reiterate the experience that I had in photo-form! Enjoy. 🙂 Morning Roma! I don’t know how you all travel but generally speaking, you make the most out of your day to go out early and explore! That means needing a lot of energy to start your day off so breakfast should absolutely not be missed (just like any other day haha). Having breakfast at the hotel just always makes things 10x easier because it’s technically free plus you don’t have to spend time searching for food when you could be going sight-seeing. So rule #1: eat well! Figuring Out Travel Route + Transport (Travel Tip) When traveling, I don’t really believe in sticking solidly to travel itineraries and timetables. I think …

Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi

As some of you may know, it’s been just over a week since I’ve been back from my trip to Rome! It was my second time going to Italy overall (first time was in Florence). Whilst I don’t profess that I’d necessarily go to Rome again (because there’s so many places to visit for the first time), it is still a destination I’d recommend especially if you’re into the Arts, Culture, History and Food. Visiting Rome was actually on my bucket list but now I can tick it off! ✅ Already, I’m thinking about where I can possibly go next; but most of all, I feel fresh and ready to work hard again! It’s strange, but until you go traveling again and are miles away from your home, you realise how much you needed that break and energy resurge to get you back on track. So in my books, I’d also recommend traveling once or twice a year to freshen up, but to also open your mind because I know I did during this trip. Flight …

June Travel Series: 4th stop > Edinburgh pt.2

(Cont. from pt.1) If you have missed my previous posts in this series: June Travel Story: 1st stop > Oxford June Travel Story: 2nd stop > London June Travel Story: 2nd stop > London pt. 2 June Travel Story: 3rd stop > Brighton Last time, I continued off from Edinburgh Castle so this is where we will begin again. Living in the UK, I sometimes take for granted what views we actually have. Unless you live on a mountain, you are mostly on level-ground where you just see houses or streets. Where I live, there is a tendency to rain a lot but that’s just an excuse to not look at all the possible perspectives… Edinburgh Castle admission price was about £10/£12 per adult (I don’t remember too accurately) but it’s affordable and really, really worth it. I even got to sit on top of a cannon! And I tested out the Panorama feature on my [old] phone. So I apologise that it’s not great quality yet I still wanted to desperately show this! We couldn’t have …

June Travel Series: 4th stop > Edinburgh

It’s the final post! (Although actually, after assessing all the photos, I will have to split into parts 1 and 2.) I like to think that I left the best till last. Or at least, this was my favourite place out of the many that we (me and my family) visited. If you missed out on my previous posts in this series: June Travel Story: 1st stop > Oxford June Travel Story: 2nd stop > London June Travel Story: 2nd stop > London pt. 2 June Travel Story: 3rd stop > Brighton After we went back to London after Brighton to stay the final night, we made our way to Edinburgh shortly after breakfast that day. To be honest, I didn’t think I’d be able to endure such a long car journey (I think it was something like 8 hours in total? I can’t remember anymore but it was really long). The short breaks in-between at service stops definitely helped though! We even ate a meal or two at these service stops. Needless to say, …
