Rome Diary Day 4 – Taking It Easy

We’ve finally got here! The last day of my Rome Diary! To catch up, see my previous posts in this series: Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi  Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What the Romans Mades + Detail Envy Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 2 – Where The Romans Once Were Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 1 – Angels Watching Over The City Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 2 – Free ‘Roming’ Otherwise, let’s start! (and subsequently finish this chapter in my life because I know it’s overdue.) Enjoy! Taking It Easy As it was the last day of our trip, or technically speaking – the last half-day – we had very limited time left to explore so there was only one way to spend it: see title. We actually woke up a bit later that morning – I guess because we had spent the previous whole two days being total tourists so much so that there was less of a rush to do so on the …

Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 2 – Free ‘Roming’

This post is a continuation from: Rome Diary Day 3 pt. 1 – Angels Watching Over The City Please feel free to catch up with the previous days in this Travel/Photo Diary too: Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi  Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What the Romans Mades + Detail Envy Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 2 – Where The Romans Once Were Otherwise, let’s continue Day 3 shall we? Back To The Other Side Of The Bridge Since we couldn’t go to explore Vatican City with more intricacy, we decided to head back to the other side of the bridge to explore the other areas as marked on our city map. I had remembered Piazza Navona being of mention on Trip Advisor so that’s where we decided to head to next. After crossing the bridge, we just kept walking straight on – the direction couldn’t have been more straightforward! 🔺 Piazza Navona Of course, these fountains and statues have nothing on Fontana di Trevi but it’s still worth …

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 …
