Italy day 1-
Surprisingly clear headed after a 13 hr plane ride+lost luggage fiasco!
Our day was mostly spent walking around the Forum, marveling at all the gelaterias (so many), and just trying to capture the incredibly detailed ancient remains of Rome.
The never ending line of outdoor eateries.. leading to unique pizzas (to say the least), and people watching- definitely easy on the eyes in Italy!
Gelato, scenic views, graffiti, ruins, grassy parks, yellow bugs and other tiny cars... add in another few gelato stops (per day that is) and it's no wonder the weeks flew by!
The Spanish steps, made famous by Roman Holiday
So you've made it to the end...of Part 1 that is! I'm feeling a little dizzy from scrolling up and down these photos for the n-th time, but of course I would give anything to be back in Europe snapping away like a pesky little tourist. But when a city such as Rome is this vibrant, energetic, and picturesque, that's what you get, right? In hindsight, I'm realizing how little people actually make an appearance in these photos- I'll do my best to get in some shots of us in the next batch of Italy pics, more specifically in Florence and Venice (!)
