Since I am never getting around to blogging about Rome (this week’s excuse is small child germwarfare ie what bugs can we infect you with now, Mummy) I’ll TT about it. So…
Thirteen Things to do in Rome.
1… Stay in a beautiful hotel
2…Arrive at the magnificent Trevi Fountain… only to find no water and two men having fun scrubbing it out
3… Mistake the column of Marcus Aurelius for that of Trajan
4… Get your first photo of the Forum
5… Get your 79th photo of the Forum… 😉
6… Take as many pictures of the colleseum as humanly possible
7… Realise that St Peter’s Square is fairly big… though not as big as Tianamen… 😉
8… Have fun with light in St Peter’s Basilica
9… Stand by this; it’s an altar. I had to wait a good ten minutes to take a clear photo as so many people were posing under the skeleton. Nice…
10… Run down this staircase out of the Vatican museum. There’s usually one pic that I love from every holiday… and this is the Roman one.
11… Visit the Baths of Caracalla, because no one else does *grin*. Vast place that we went to on Valentines Day. The Ent The Ent proposed… and then we managed to talk ourselves out if again, hehe
12… When in Rome, one must really see the pyramid… so we did. *grin*
13… And on the final morning, you must get soaked to the skin and have to get on the plane home uncomfortably damp.
14…Added extra… Remember to take your Alphasmart, for writing and making blog posts… and only turn the damn thing on for ten minutes on the plane back! LOL
