Rome Outdoors







Rome was, hot, beautiful, tiring, touristy, dusty, loud, entertaining, green, sun drenched, spectacular and surprising.
The Trevi fountain floored me as did the white baroque architecture against a cloudless blue sky but who can enjoy the Sistine Chapel with 500 hot people in the same room as you?
I had a love hate relationship with Rome, not to be done again in the month of July but we walked and saw and ate and laughed so I loved it for that.

oh rome! your photos whisked me back to happy memories there. but the heat. we did the july heat too. and now i'm having a flashback of being stuck on the metro. yes...during rush hour and not understanding the announcement as we stopped mid-tunnel. closing my eyes and thinking calm thoughts! but like you say so much to love. xx
