rome, italy {part three}

I can’t believe it has been a month since we moved back to the States! It’s great to be back since everything is a bit easier here and I’m not 6 hours ahead of my family {sorry for waking you up all of those times, parents!}, but I think B and I both agree that we miss Scotland. Whether we were taking a road trip, or just running errands on a Sunday afternoon, driving around the Highlands was always such a pleasure. I miss running into hidden castles, looking around to see sheep and Highland cows scattering the fields, and most of all, I miss being able to access Mainland Europe easily. Have I mentioned that travel is cheap? B and I love exploring, but plane tickets out of the USA are so darn expensive! I suppose I should stop pinning travel destinations and focus on all of the countries we did get to experience this past year.

Anyway, long story short, I started this online diary to document all of our travels for family, friends, and ourselves, but I’ve been slacking. I think it’s time to sort through all of our photos and get serious! Plus, I’d love to take a little trip down memory lane this week. I hope you enjoy our photos as much as we do!

It’s somewhat overwhelming because there is so much to see and do in Rome. We had quite a bit of our trip planned out, but a lot of time was spent wandering around aimlessly, taking photos {my favorite} and somehow we stumbled across a lot. I remember having lunch and turning a street corner afterwards to find Piazza Navona, one of Rome’s famous squares with beautiful water fountains. After that, we walked a couple more blocks and found The Pantheon. We could have easily missed it since all of the streets form one big maze and a lot is tucked away in the squares, but luck was on our side that day.

    I visited Rome as a teenager and I remember being so in awe of all the history. I hope to go back as an adult so that I fully appreciate it!

    That last photo of the sunset – gorgeous!

    We were in Rome last year for Christmas. Piazza Navona housed the largest Christmas goodie stands for miles. Amazing chocolate goodies and countless ornaments were purchased there. Glad you had a great time! We sure did!!
