Wanderlust Wednesday: Rome

Oh Roma. After visiting for only a weekend last summer, it was immediately clear to me how easy it would be to fall in love with the city and never return. There’s a genuine romance about Rome; the little cobblestoned lanes of Trastevere, the peeling paint of the buildings, the passionate exchanges between locals, an aperitivo in the warm sunshine before a bowl of peppery carbonara or a fresh caprese salad. Rome, you got me. I’m aching to go back! These photographs from my visit last year have me scheming about when I can return.
