The famous steps of over Piazza di Spagna

Last saturday we were really lucky with the weather in Rome.

Friday seemed to have brought in one of the most hardcore torrential rains in a while that by the next day had mysteriously vanished. The weather was warm, we strolled around the streets with light jackets and had a beautiful light to photograph.

So iPhone clad I instagrammed my way silly.

Rome’s nightlife HERO!

Antonio runs one of the most sought after bakeries in the capital!

This place has a huge queue flowing out of it throughout the night, romans just can’t get enough of his delicious creations!

The most famous dish is the: Sorchetta Doppio Schizzo, a cream glazed doughnut drenched in Nutella…Yes REALLY!

And the rest you can view and judge for yourself from the pictures of my after party escapade…he was sweet enough to make me come behind the counter and check out the sweet scene from up close

Sorchetta for ever! :)

This weekend I had the joy to go down to Rome to celebrate a friend’s birthday!

Rome is by far my favorite city in Italy, its beauty has seeped right beneath my skin and whenever Im there I really wonder why I live in Milan.

Milan has all its up points too…but seriously rome is just better!

Took these two photos on a walk up to the park

the irony…on the way to my driving lesson

Taxi/Bus Lane while on my bicycle…Maybe a sign I shouldn’t learn how to drive?  Or incentive?

Where Am I?
