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!

Famous(ly dangerous) street crossings and oh, the light!
Gelato at dusk
Spanish Steps in the morning
Vatican views at Pincio
View from the Palatin Hill
Pacceri with sea bass and cherry tomatoes

New snack addiction: Supplì (basically, fried risotto)
Rome’s one and only car
Spring in Rome!

Which is your favorite image from Rome?
(Also, were there too many food photos in this post?)
