Isn't it Rome-mantic?
Yeah, so I was in Rome for Valentine's Day. Most romantic place on earth right? Well in grand Mel Heth fashion, I came down with a stomach issue that evening (I'm blaming the yogurt and berry gelato I ate before dinner) that forced me to make Mr. W put on his headphones with very loud music while I spent some time in the bathroom. Totally exactly how I thought my über romantic V-Day would go down in sexy, beautiful Rome.
The picture above is Trevi Fountain which was completely incredible. I felt like a very bad, stupid American when I caught myself thinking "Huh, it looks like something you'd see in Vegas."
This was the very cute courtyard outside the apartment where we stayed. We actually found a postcard (with kittens in the picture...smooshy!) with this very courtyard in it. I guess it's kinda famous. It was very charming and in a great location—just minutes from the Pantheon.
Oh hi. That's me. Hanging out. At the freaking Coliseum. Where gladiators used to fight lions and stuff. Thousands of years ago. No big.
Here's part of the Forum, which was extremely impressive. Aquaducts and drainage systems? Seriously. Crazy smart Romans.
I'm still not quite ready to be a fully-functioning blogger and member of society. Hopefully I'll be ready to join the masses again in the next couple of weeks.
