The evening before writing this, I was thinking how to name our Rome photo diary. I wanted something simple, yet powerful and catchy as the city itself. Pictures from Rome, Our Roman Adventures in Photos, Photo Diary from Rome… Nothing seemed right. I was thinking about everything I saw and liked in the capital of Italy. The Collosseum, the Roman Forum, the gorgeous Trevi Fountain, and narrow streets of Rome came to life in my memory. But still I couldn’t come up with the right title for our photo diary. And then two words struck me. Roman Holiday! Eureka! It perfectly aligned with my perception and images of Rome. Roman Holiday photo diary! I liked it. And so the name stayed.
Many Events from Our Roman Holiday
We didn’t have to get new haircuts, change our clothes or lifestyles like the heroin of Audrey Hepburn in the movie “Roman Holiday”. Nevertheless, we had more than enough events and interesting situations to last a lifetime and make a good contribution to our Roman Holiday photo diary.
It all started at Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport where we find out that our stroller was lost somewhere between Vienna and Rome. Buying a new stroller turned out to be even more eventful. Not to bore you, I just simply say that this incident taught us a great deal about shopping in Italy. But it was not the best addition to our Roman Holiday photo diary.
Hotel room was another very interesting “episode” in our Roman holiday story. Like in the eponymous movie, it was small, not that cozy, and faced a wall of a building across the street. But the location was perfect, almost in the center of the city. We could walk anywhere and everywhere. I only regret that I didn’t take even one picture of our “Roman home”. It could make our Roman Holiday photo diary look more realistic.
Our eventful situations and encounters in Rome don’t really have end. I wouldn’t be able to finish this post if I had to describe all of them. But above all, the city is what charmed and fascinated us. With the combination of ancient and modern structures, it’s undoubtedly one of the most remarkable cities we’ve been to. But let me skip all the excessive descriptions in this part of our Roman Holiday photo dairy. It’s time for Rome to speak for itself.
