I got back from Rome on Wednesday evening, what a whirlwind adventure but so much fun! Basically, I got the opportunity to go along at the last minute to the Rome Tennis Masters and I was not going to turn that down! Grace got braided at the last minute as well because she was not trying to make friends with my manicure (I will not be getting a special sequinned manicure again anytime soon) and we were set to go.
The trip was awesome. I spent 1.5 days at the tennis and because it was such a short trip, I set aside one full day for sight-seeing. Trying to be a good tourist, I had planned to take one of the tour buses that would take me round all the major attractions so I would not have to navigate them myself. Sadly, I was unsuccessful in taking the bus because I never did find the bus stop at any of the stops, but what eventually happened was that in my hunt for the tour bus stop, I ended up doing the tour…on foot! Yep, I walked to each attraction thinking that I would then finally find the bus and give my aching feet a rest, but it was not meant to be haha! Ah well, it was an adventure and experience trying to make sense of my map but it was good fun and I got to see Roma, the City of Seven Hills.
Here are some of my favorite shots from the Eternal City:
And now for the roll call of designers:
