Rome: it begins

As lots of you know (mainly because I wouldn’t stop talking about it), I recently spent a weekend in Rome with Ben.

I was prepared for pretty cobbled streets, delicious food, and old, majestic-looking ruins. And while Rome delivered on all of those things, what really surprised me was the light. It was stunning. Maybe it’s because it bounces off tall, creamy-coloured buildings, or is dappled through trees and ivy, but it was just GORGEOUS. Soft, diffused, beautiful.

Some pics below, many more to come.

    I ADORE the fountain shot, and love that it’s followed by the pizza. The water was so clear and cool, i could quite easily have slipped into it and bathed peacefully until I was forcibly removed by Roman police. I know I was lucky to be there, but it just occurred to me that I was lucky that you were there too, we both were.

    Nathalie, those photos are lovely, I really like your nail colour in the fountain. Square pizza is where it’s at. Mmm Steps of Rome on Chatham Street is a good substitute when you can’t have the real deal. And aaahh, would you look at Ben’s fuzzy hair! How cute 😛
    You guys are awesome!

      Thanks a mill Aisling 🙂 I’m a big fan of Steps of Rome – went there the evening before we left to get us in the mood! And the nail polish is Nails In in Brook Street (I think). Ben’s not a big fan of his locks, think he’s about to shave ’em all off.
