Matt prepared a travel journal for me for my most recent trip overseas; along with a love letter for every day I was gone, he also gave me a thoughtfully-planned writing prompt for each day. He knew I love capturing my travels in photographs, but he also knows how much I love to write. And one of my favorite writing prompts from the trip was “Describe Rome in one word.” Without hesitation, I chose the word “layered.” Rome is layer upon layer of history- thousands and thousands of years of culture, politics, people, stories, everything, all crammed into what ended up feeling like a small town. It was unimaginably cooler than I was expecting!
My sweet host, Heather, was incredible- she planned the perfect mix of relaxed experience and active wandering, and I couldn’t have enjoyed my time more! For example, after arriving home from being picked up at the airport, we went straight into making limoncello. By hand. With lemons from trees in Heather’s front yard. Words cannot describe my glee!
Without further ado, I present Rome, Italy for your viewing pleasure.
My gorgeous host, Heather!
