Visiting St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica was something I almost didn’t do. After spending the morning exploring the Vatican Museums I very much had information fatigue and wasn’t sure I could take any more in. But it was our last full day in Rome which meant it was the only time S and I had left to […]

Vatican City Museums

“When in Rome.” It’s a sentence used by many. Whether as a dismissal for eating ”too much” pizza, devouring too much gelato (is there such a thing?) or when you wanna do something a little risky (or risque *wink wink*) and need an excuse for a lil’ encouragement. OR It’s a sentence that, when actually […]

Ragno D’oro

Ragna D’oro was a place that S found whilst we were in Rome.     It’s funny, when we’re in England S tends to leave the dining out options to me. I’ll usually get an “anywhere’s good”, an “I don’t mind” or a “wherever you want babe” when I ask where he’d like to go out […]

The Colosseum has been in films, music videos and fashion shows so the Colosseum, otherwise known as Colosseo, is quite the monument! It’s iconic. So it was a must that when S and I flew to Rome, that […]

Best Tiramisu in Rome

Finding the best tiramisu in Rome is a challenge I happily accepted. Even though it was a challenge that I very much gave to myself.     You see, after exploring the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, my plantar fasciitis (killer pain on the underneath of my foot) flared up, which very much put walking […]

Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Visiting the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill was something which occurred, somewhat, by accident. There we were roaming around, as one does whilst in Rome, when we came across the stairs to the Capitoline Museums. You see, whenever we travel S and I have a tendency to want to see certain areas and attractions, but […]

The Spanish Steps

Sitting on the Spanish steps in Rome, I couldn’t help but think about how steps can be such a key component to a story. They’re such an unassuming object, yet stairs can hold such significant meaning. When I was younger I would tip-toe down the stairs every December and perch just a few stairs up, listening to […]
