I just go back from a few days in Rome — and I have a lot to write about. I learned so much on this trip: What a really good travel partner should be like, that pickpockets don’t care about birthdays, that tourist crowds and annoying salesmen make me aggressive, and that I actually had no clue what good Italian food really tasted like. But before I start writing about all my ups and downs in Rome, and before I start swooning, raving, and ranting, I will share my favorite photos — because pictures say more than thousand words. And I actually took more than thousand photos in Rome (taking way too many photos is one of the photography flaws I just can’t get rid of).

So, for now I give you beautiful light, delicious gelatos, Vespas, cobblestone streets, and stunning views — to say it in a Woody Allen movie title way — from Rome with Love!
