Rome 2015

From the Archive: Three Weeks

The official countdown can now…officially begin! Three weeks until I leave for Rome!

Recent touristy purchases:

  • A map of the city of Rome – in case my Italian phone doesn’t pan out the way I am expecting.
  • An Italian phrasebook – so I can say more than “Vorrei una bottiglia di vino blanco” or “Vorrei pasta alla carbonara.”
  • A big floppy straw hat – well, it’s not so big, but it has enough of a brim to keep my sun-sensitive face protected from the sun.
  • A pair of prescription sunglasses to protect my sun-sensitive eyes from the Roman sun.
