Even though I've been to Rome before, it was still one of my favorite places I visited on my European adventure last month. For some reason, Rome feels a little like home to me...maybe because of my half Italian heritage, or maybe because the people are so friendly and welcoming. Not quite sure what it is, but man do I love that city!
Although I just got back from Europe 2 weeks ago, I'm already craving another getaway! Particularly one involving a lake, a cabin and s'mores! The summer solstice has cast it's spell and all I want to do is explore and go on adventures! Aint' that what life's all about anyways? :)
Ohhhh Barcelona. What a charming city. Unfortunately, for the 4 days we were there, I was incredibly sick and didn't get to do as much wandering and picture taking as I would've wanted in this special place. With the strength I was able to muster up we went to the Primavera Sound Festival, which was right on the water and an unforgettable experience. We wandered around a little part of the city called El Born, that had the cutest shops and most delicious Tapas restaurants. Strolled by the Sagrada Familia and through other beautiful churches that were open to the public (Europe is filled with them). The people were so friendly. The streets were clean and the buildings immaculately beautiful, there was really no way to capture the beauty in pictures. Though most of my time was spent in bed and in the sauna at our hotel, I loved the feeling this city gave me.
I guess it just means I have to go back so I can really explore and party with the Barcelona peeps, and I ain't mad at that idea!
