Eight Things I Miss During Covid-19

I miss the simplest things during lockdown.

1. Cappuccino made by someone other than myself.

2. Seeing beauty every day.

3. Going out for pizza

4. Poking around wonderful Roman stores.

5. People watching.

6. Walking everywhere.

7. The Pantheon

8. The warmth of my favorite city.

I hope you are all well. We will be back to walking, shopping, celebrating with each other, and enjoying a cappuccino in a bar!

Take care of yourselves.

Explore history by walking the streets of Rome

It is not a secret that my soul lives in the eternal city. This magnificent place has so much to offer visitors. If you are a lover of history and beauty this is the city for you.

I always tell people there are wonderful tour guides in Rome, but you do not need a guide to see this city, you just need a comfortable pair of shoes. Rome is a very walk-able city. If you get lost, and you will, I promise you will discover something magical which you would have missed otherwise.

I found this lovely fountain when I was on a walk with no destination. With an iPhone and a few euros you have enough to entertain yourself for the entire day.

Come and see Rome for yourself. A long day of walking is the best way to open your horizons and see life in a new way.

If you are one of the lucky ones it will get inside you and change you forever. It is a city that speaks to those who listen, look and love…and those who think it is a dirty crowded city are not open to receiving its gifts.
