A hearty ciao from Rome Italy , and l gotta tell you, it is hot in the city ( yes… as in my idol Billy Idol). Fortunately, it doesn’t feel that much different from Valencia, maybe even a little drier heat, so l can’t complain too much. This was our originally planned summer trip before London popped up.
Ciao from Rome Italy: what have we been up to?
We have spent the days doing what we always do, roaming around the city and revisiting the familiar sights and enjoying life like locals. We also met up with some friends who were also visiting from Valencia. It never gets old!
It felt a bit weird not seeing his mom bustling about. This is our first time back since she passed last October. The AirBnB is close to her old place (having to even book one felt weird). I do feel she is smiling wherever she is though seeing her kids getting along.
We have been spending quality time with his family, one of his nephews tuned eight years old, and it is so much better now that they have transitioned to pre teen and no longer toddlers. No more headaches!
Since Rome is all about history and food, and l never tire of learning about either, we have been eating a lot and walking a whole lot more, despite the heat. We are looking forward to some beach time down south after this.
Upon our return, l will share more about the trip. The dogs are doing well, and barely miss us from the photos the sitter sends. I always feel better when they are in their usual sorroundings and they were already familiar with her, enough so that Sky didn’t bother getting up, while Bella just rolled over for a belly rub as soon as she saw who it was☺️. Traitors🤣.
Food in Rome:
I hope you enjoy some images from the trip so far. I pray everyone is having a wonderful summer and your plans aren’t being too affected by all the transportation problems that we have been reading about.
Europe is also set to have major strikes this summer. The airline we are scheduled to fly with announced several strike days for Spain this month, and we just missed all the days by one coming and going. I hope everything goes as planned. Any travel in the foreseeable future will be by train or bus only.
Ciao from Rome Italy, and arriverderci!
