No, not the classic Audrey Hepburn film from the 1950’s, but my husband and I will be in Rome at the end of May to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary!
Could we actually be THAT old? I don’t feel it, but the facts don’t lie
On 12 June 1992
I said I do
You can see a few images of us looking VERY young HERE. Just remember it was the early nineties for forgive the fashion!
I love to plan a holiday, whereas my husband doesn’t think to much about it until he is actually on the way to the airport, or maybe even in the air! So it is a match made in heaven – I plan happily and he happily just turns up!
So, here’s what has been arranged so far
- My wonderful parents are moving in to look after the kids (thanks Mum and Dad! – they read my blog)
- We are flying from Dublin with Aer Lingus, so although we will have about a 90 minute drive down to the airport, we avoid flying to London for connecting flights – always more expensive and doubles the chance of delays.
- We are staying at the number 2 or number 3 hotel in Rome as rated by Trip Advisor users, Albergo del Senato. Although not a large hotel, it is in a great location overlooking the square right outside the Pantheon ….. and we have booked “a room with a view”. Can you imagine just how many photos I will take?! You have been warned!
So……..can’t wait, and the planning continues. We (I) usually plan one tour / event that is a wee bit different from the usual tourist trail when we visit a city.
My husband has been on a trip to Rome for a conference, and had a private tour of the Vatican museum. My husband loves museums, I like exploring the small side streets and taking photos. We are I am looking at maybe taking a half-day cookery course which could be fun – learning to make pasta etc!
I did another photo walk in Boston 2 summers ago with my daughter – another enjoyable experience – you can see some of those photos HERE
So, decisions, decisions ……. cooking, photography or some other sort of tour? Which would you choose?
Have you been to Rome? Any personal recommendations?
Have you a city you would love to visit? Where would that be?
Still thinking of that Roman Holiday Audrey Hepburn film?
Here is a trailer I discovered for it
