Yes I’m in ROMA! Punkie and Winnie you’ve just won a goldenvault full of my wet and affectionate smooches for guessing right. Actually the pretzels hint was rubbish, I learned that the pretzel-like things they were serving on the Alitalia flight were were called Taralli so gave myself a tutti frutti smack on the butt for getting it wrong. Sorry.

Other than the fact that everything written reads to me like a Spaghettihouse menu, eg. Spaghetti All’Arabbiata: Please Do not lean, this city is the most beautiful city I’ve ever visited. So rich in history and culture, you can almost taste the height of the Roman Empire by the mere vastness of the architecture. Breathtaking doesn’t even start to explain what this place is, even tap water tastes like laced with some kind of myth. Actually tap water here tastes pretty damn good, like rainbows and kitten butts.

Tomorrow: Vatican city with a sprinkle of gelato, and shopping under the Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps). [Q&A on hold until I get home and have no obligation to get up and walk till my feet are stubs]

  1. luckayyyyy! you look fab, as always and those shoes are so clever.
    planinng to go to rome myself next year, on a school trip to france, monaco, and italy.
    you must recommend me some awesome shopping sites!

  2. Jealousssss. Rome is one of my favourite European cities, it’s just so beautiful and laid back and filled with exciting foodstufs. It’s raining in London :( xoxo

  3. I had a sense you were in Rome! Those steps in the previous entry look like very ruin-ish. btw, Brutiful photos!

  4. Oh, how I miss italiaaaa.. Le sigh! Beautiful photos esp of the Fiat. So classic Italian :d

  5. Oh I’m crushed I guessed wrong :0}

    How awesome is traveling? Send me ur pants then it’d be the traveling pants…

  6. beautiful shots
    what kind of camera do you use?

  7. Rome is gorgeous, I’m so jealous of your trip! Make sure you eat as much pasta and gelato as you can. Can’t wait to see some Roma purchases. ps loving the shoes girl :) xo

  8. I am the green-eyed monster of envy right now. Partially because you’re in Rome, surrounded by all that beauty. And mostly because you have true gelato. *sigh*

    I am still obsessing over your DIY bag. I must find a bag to stud-ify!

    Bisous,
    La C.

    P.S.: I’m also wondering the same thing as Ayana; what camera do you use? I’m quite annoyed at my shotty digital camera at the moment. Haha

  9. Gosh, I remember drinking that kitten butt water, not so long ago. I love Rome, but also sort of hate it..as a result of someone stealing my umbrella (which I had just bought from a street vender for E7)from an internet cafe. Gorgeous photos!

  10. wow! i can’t wait to see more pictures of you in roma! i love the photo of the fiat. looks like you were at the trevi! the last time i was there my friend’s wallet got stolen by gypsies and i chased after them! haha

  11. “Actually tap water here tastes pretty damn good, like rainbows and kitten butts.”

  25. I wish I looked half as amazing while I’m travelling. You look so good! My guess would have been Rome too. :)

  26. I hope you post what camera you use in your Q&A (and so do about 90% of your other readers)

    Seems like you get to go to pretty places a lot, and wear pretty clothes and make people envy you… a lot.

  27. When I read the title of this blog, I was like, “Oh my, Romulus and Remus are twins….”

    So hard for me to convey the right emotions via the internet.
