Sunday Selections

June 16, 2014

Travel delays. Don’t you love them? Last night, my flight from Rome back to Berlin was delayed for three hours due to intense thunderstorms over the city, throwing Fiumicino Airport into chaos and meaning that you’re reading my usual Sunday post on a Monday.

I hope you had a dreamy weekend because I certainly did! What better way to spend a weekend than by jet-setting down to Rome for 48 hours? Perfect.

Trastevere, Rome, Italy

WATCH: As I’ve said before, I love watching movies or documentaries filmed in places that I will be visiting soon and last weekend’s little sojourn to Rome was no exception. I revisited ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’ last week to admire Italy’s beautiful scenery, including Rome, in which parts of the film were shot. Yesterday I stood on the Spanish Steps looking down into the café where Marge and Meredith met. Surreal.

READ: My feet were feeling pretty itchy as I was reading this article which highlights a list of the Top 100 Travel Photographers in the World. I never want to stop exploring!

EAT: I would like this fennel, leek and orange pork osso buco in my belly soon.

MAKE: Pressing flowers in heavy, old books is just something that little girls love — in my case, anyway. I love this idea for making your own pressed flower tags for presents. How special.

DREAM BUY: Whilst buying a house is of no interest to me whatsoever right now, one day in the future it would be rather nice to live in this kind of home.

BUDGET BUY: I adore this bandeau bikini from Triangl in the white animal print. And at under AUD$100 for the set? Bargain.

GO: Life is busy at the moment with work pressures, but what better way to recharge on the weekend than by exploring somewhere new? It was Rome last weekend and next weekend it’s Belgrade. I may arrive at work exhausted on Monday mornings (especially when flight delays are involved) but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Wishing you a wonderful week!

    Oh, I adore Rome. Watching movies or reading fiction set in your destination city is just the best introduction. Have fun in Belgrade! x
