Cheesy title? Yes. But when will I ever go back to Rome? Not any time soon. Although it was nice to get a few days away from work and travel to a new place to see beautiful art and to catch up with my friend David who was over from Perth, Rome left a sour taste in my mouth. Just a little. Firstly it was a bad decision to go in July because the heat and humidity was unbearable, so I won’t be doing that again. Secondly, three count em THREE of my flights got cancelled and I ended up having to shell out 250 euros to get a flight back to London…Stansted! All because Starbucks burnt down part of the Fiumicino Airport. Anyway, you can see why even though I saw amazing things I will not look back on the trip with the fondness that I should have. It’s a shame but I am happy I went because I got to see some art that I studied at uni and ate a whole lot of delicious food. I even stumbled upon the rehearsal for the Valentino couture show, now that was exciting!
The Galleria Borghese was the highlight of my trip, one which deserves its own post.
Bernini sculptures next to Alaïa couture, it was breathtaking!
As well as my post dedicated to the Galleria Borghese look out for a post with the film I shot in Rome, currently waiting on development!
