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 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, …

June Travel Series: 3rd stop > Brighton

Firstly, I’d like to say thank you for all the likes from my previous posts regarding this new June Travel Series that I have been sharing! I am overwhelmed by the reaction and it has given me a huge confidence boost to continue sharing and doing what I do on this website. There is always fear as a creative, on whether anyone will view your content but at the same time, you don’t want just anyone to view the work. You want someone to like it, to feel inspired, to get it. So it has been a really enlightening and positive experience to not only share to everyone on a global platform, but to also find like-minded individuals too! If you 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 This post documents my one day travel (a mere few hours actually), to Brighton. Brighton is known as the seaside city of the UK. I have …
