That title translates to “I want to go back to Rome!” – I have been trying to teach myself Italian for about a year and a half now using the Duolingo app. It’s quite similar to Spanish and French but at the same time it’s not. I love languages and if I had my way I’d learn how to speak all of them fluently.
The reason behind my surge of Italian is that I’ve proposed to my mum that we take a trip to Rome this year. I’ve been to Rome before, but I was there with my college, so I didn’t really get a chance to do too much exploring.
The photo above is of St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, it was a bit of an action shot from the top of an open-roof tour bus, and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. It’s probably the only good photo I actually got from my college trip. I took quite a lot of photos of the people I was as opposed to the nice buildings which, looking back, was a total rookie mistake!
We went in a huge group and these are the girls I split off with for when we were allowed to have a wander in smaller groups. This is at Piazza Navona, and we were quite amused by the fact that the statue behind us had a nice, pert bottom.
The good thing about having been to Rome before is that I have an idea of the good places to take my mum! For instance, I remember there being a really nice ice cream parlour on one of the alleyways beside Piazza Navona. I had an apple sorbet. Yes, apple sorbet. It was incredible. I really hope we can find it again!
I am absolutely a city person, and I definitely prefer exploring and checking out museums and cultural trips to lying on a beach. Obviously being very easily burnt that was a bit of a given, but I’m glad to say that I’d actively prefer to look around beautiful architectures and historical monuments.
Hopefully I can convince my mum to go, and if we do, you can be sure there will be blog posts!
