Old Door in Rome, Travel Photography

 

This is a beautiful old door I passed on a dream trip to Rome (2006) that I never thought would ever happen. Each region and city of Italy that I visited was beautiful in its own way. My trip to Rome though was extra special. This is where I was able to add on days at the beginning of my trip (before actually joining the tour). This gave me extra time to explore more in-depth this wonderful city and to make sure to see the sites that I absolutely did not want to miss.

It was here that I learned what ‘Rome was not made in a day’ really means. Whether you are hitting the tourist hot spots such as the Pantheon, Coliseum, or just enjoying a cup of cappuccino, so much of ancient history is still very visible almost everywhere you look. I could not believe that not only could I see the road where Caeser’s chariots drove, but that they were not roped off and I could actually stand where ancient rulers had.

While there I was treated to great music everywhere on the streets, in restaurants, and all around while I also learned how to properly drink and enjoy wine, which is a big deal for someone who doesn’t really drink much at all. So my appreciation of good wine starts here and I still think of Italy with each glass of white wine especially. If you ever get to visit Rome, don’t forget to toss a coin in the baroque Trevi Fountain, so as legend has it, you will hopefully get to visit the eternal city of Rome again.  ~

Photography ~ Places I Have Been

One of the things I miss most about todays world is the ability to freely travel. There is no better way to connect with other people than to share time, food,  and learn about their world.  It is so meaningful to share hospitality and just being in the moment with another within their own culture. I believe it is true that our world shrinks and can become more caring as we learn about each other’s culture and people.  While on one of my many walks,  I just happened to come across these beautiful doors while exploring about Rome. To say there is so much to find in Rome is an huge understatement! This is truly where  I learned and understood the phrase ‘Rome was not built in a day’.  Besides all the beautiful art, architecture, and friendly people… they have great music, wine, coffee, and make a great margarita to just sit and sip in one of their lovely piazzas. Yes, I enjoyed everything about Rome, including actually walking on the very same road as some of the greatest Roman rulers, and so much more. Oh, someday  to go again. ~
