Let’s go back in time to not my most recent Rome trip, but the one before that. Because aside from waxing on and on about how freaking great MuRO is, there are a couple other worthy things to note about that trip, low those many months ago. For instance, that particular trip was the first… Read More Wrapping up that Rome trip (not the most recent one, but whatever, time is a flat circle)
Sardinia and Italy call, and yet I’m still stuck in two-feet of snow with work and other responsibilities keeping me from dreaming Italian dreams. I’ve been silent for a few weeks and to stick a toe back in the water (heh), here’s a rock and the turquoise sea off of Sardinia and the brushy, shrubby land.… Read More Dreaming of Sardinia; will Winter ever End?!?
When you’ve spent as much time in Rome as I have, photos seemingly become less essential. Enjoy these few snaps before I drown you with photos from my next destination…
In our brief return to Rome we stayed in a lovely little Airbnb studio up in Monteverde which had the gorgeous patio you see above, which really made the rest of the place, which was teeny with the teeniest bathroom, bearable. Monteverde is in NO WAY the ideal tourist neighborhood for visiting Rome. It’s up the… Read More Airbnb and the Problem of Accommodations in Rome
In addition to the best lunch ever, and my three favorite, cheap Roman options, the one place I wanted to go during my brief return to Rome was a place I adore down in Garbatella.

Who knows?) But I’m going to let the photos do the talking here because it is now officially my favorite museum in Rome.… Read More Centrale Montemartini, Rome: New Favorite Museum, Best Ever, The End.
When I wrote this post a few weeks ago (actually a month, HOLY CRAP), I was circling the drain in terms of unemployed bummer-hood. BUT! I am freshly employed, with a start date on the horizon and visions of how I’m going to use this exciting new thing called vacation time. In grad school while there… Read More Good News!: No-longer Unemployed, Rome STILL Pretty
You’re probably sick of it by now. Because how many times can I tell you that the Parco degli Acquedotti is the absolute best? That it’s so lovely in Springtime when the flowers are blooming, and that like the Villa Pamphilj, it’s perfect for a bit of calm and quiet? I will never tire of… Read More I’ll Just Move In: Parco degli Acquedotti, Rome
