A Treasure Trove of Roman Memories

A Treasure Trove of Roman Memories

One of my dreams came true last month, I went to Italy. I studied mythology in the Greek and Roman worlds as part of my degree and ever since then I have been fascinated by the history of these two places and have really wanted to visit Rome. So, not only did I get there to celebrate my birthday, but I got to spend a wonderful week with my mum and dad. I took so many photographs and I can’t wait to share them with you, but, for now, here are some memories we made as we enjoyed our week together.

We really had such a fabulous and fun time together and this was a trip I will never forget. My mum and dad have been to Rome a couple of times before, but they said they saw so much more this time. I’m not surprised, we must have walked a good 5-7 km most days and my poor mum didn’t give up, even though she was in pain from walking so far. I can’t thank mum and dad enough for making my birthday so very special.

  1. What a fabulous trip – and great photos – and happy parents. When our daughter was in Florence for her college year abroad, my guy and I visited her and walked those many many miles of exploration. One of the best times of my life. Italy is magical.

    1. Thank you so much! We walked miles each day too. I loved Florence and just wandering around the little streets. And what a lovely surprise to turn one corner and see the Duomo! Spectacular!

  2. Good for you…not only to visit Italy, but with your parents. Awesome!! 2 of our 3 girls and their hubbies have visited Italy…we haven’t yet, but intend to…I have the same fascination with history you do…great post!

    1. Thank you Kirt, it was the best choice to go there. We had a wonderful week together. I have only scratched the surface of what there is to discover. Even though we saw loads of stuff in Rome, I need to go back to see more 🙂
