Just ‘Rome’ing Part 1

Last week saw the end of my Italian adventure with the girls and after 4 days in the gorgeous city of Rome (eating tonnes of carbs and gelato and supping copious amounts of wine) it’s safe to say I have the holiday blues.

I can’t not share my amazing time with you all but there’s LOTS to say, so I’ve decided to write about my experience in a handful posts for ease…and to keep y’all interested. Watch this space!

But for now, back to the trip…

We jam packed as much as we possibly could and saw beautiful landmarks including the Collesseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and obviously – The Vatican.

On the first day, we arrived at about midday and immediately went exploring our surroundings, sussing out our new home for the next few days.

Straight away, we spotted a huge flight of stone steps and at the top, we had our first birds eye view of Rome.

Still in awe of the view, we stumbled upon a little old lady on the side of the road who made jewellery from nothing than a piece of wire and set of pliers – so all 6 of us had our names carefully moulded into delicate friendship necklaces. Cute, right?

Later, after having our first real, Italian meal (pizza, of course) we headed out and honestly, I’ve never experienced a night quite like it.

From playing beer pong (with shots) in the restaurant, to dancing on the bar…the first night definitely got a little crazy. That’s all I can divulge for now though…what happens in Rome, stays in Rome! I’ll be back with another post later today, but in the meantime,here’s some fun snaps to aid your imagination…
