La Vita Bella

I know I don’t normally blog on Saturdays, but I have just been so busy since returning from my vacation that the week has flown by.

Besides coming home with two bags full of laundry, my dryer was broken for a week prior to my trip. So, I am STILL in the process of tackling about 18 loads.  The good thing about European jet lag is that I’ve been up and at ’em by 6 a.m. every day.  Let’s hope it stays that way!

I promised some photos from my trip, so here goes…

Here we are in the Colosseum.
At the Circus Maximus
At the Trevi Fountain
In front of the Colloseum
At a fab beer shop in Rome
In front of the Tiber River
The Vatican
The beach in front of our hotel in Lido di Ostia
At Anima Mundi Bar, with a beautiful church just steps away!

I have to post a disclaimer on my appearance.  Inasmuch as I wanted to look all hot and European on my vacation–it was impossible.  Our power converter wouldn’t heat up neither my curling nor my flat iron, hence the not-quite-flat, not-quite-wavy hair thing I had going on.  The blow dryer in the hotel room was basically a vacuum cleaner on reverse.

Also, this was technically a business trip, and we were generously put up in a beautiful hotel on the beach of Lido di Ostia.  Unfortunately, Ostia is 2 trains and 45 mins away from the center of Rome.  This means I had to layer my clothing to account for the changes in temperature in the 8 hours we would ultimately spend each day between visits to our hotel room.

Even so, I had such a wonderful time!!  Maybe next week I will post some photos of all the ah-mahzing food I ate!  YUUMM!

  1. Oh Roma, it's just so beautiful!
    And that beach view looks gorgeous, even if it was a little out of the city at least you got to see a place that most tourists don't! And thanks for posti on the weekend.. So few people do but it's when I've got the most free time to catch up on blogs!
