Flashback Friday

Revisiting Rome

Thousand sophisticated words can fall right in front of me but Rome is simply…

For this Flashback Friday, I’m revisiting Rome. No, I didn’t fly there again. I just thought that it is only rightful to re-post, for the first time, Rome and the Vatican. It is the city I still deem to be the best in the world. During my 2 years assignment in Italy, I usually take the train and visit Rome again and again. Thousand words can fall right in front of me but Rome is simply…




Rome? Italy?


What about learning how to cook in Italy? That girl whit and the lover of the rad and fab took an Italian exploration in Rome, Sorrento and Florence. Her clear and crispy, stylishly-presented pictures all look like they are ripped off from magazines. She is a jaunty, free-spirited blogger. Just read her journalistic stories and look at her lovely images and you’ll see what I mean. Everyone knows how amazing food exploration in Italy is. She took that journey to another level, she learned her culinary skills while in Florence. My favorite post – How I became an Italian chef in a day: Florence Food & Wine Academy.

  1. Beautiful pictures of such a fantastic historical city. I was there with my family four Christmases ago, it was one of the best experiences of my life. Christmas eve there was very magical!

  2. I wish I could go and visit Rome, too! But looking at the beautiful photos will have to do for now! Thanks for sharing your experiences!

  3. You are absolutely right Romel. Rome is simply Beautiful. 🙂 Great pictures of these wonderful architectures. Excellent post. It worth the re-post.

  4. What type of camera do you use? I like this

    What type of camera do recommend for ameatuer for $300 or less?

    • I’m glad you asked that. Well first off, I’m flattered that you ask me amongst so many great photography blogs out there. Second, it is a perfect timing. The images you see here are all from point and shoot. I used Sony CyberShot here. It was worth $140. I do highly suggest Sony cameras when it comes to cheaper cameras. Canon cameras of lesser value than say $500 are really good. I don’t suggest Nikon with low price. However, I do recommend Nikon DLSR’s even though I use Canon DLSR. I have Canon T2i. I have 3 lenses, switching according to the subject. Smart phones, esp. Iphone will do for good pictures, esp. with Instagram and other image editors, just not as actual to the real view than regular cameras. I’m no photographer, most real photographers use SLR’s, and they’re real expert in photo editting.

  5. Great photos – like everyone commenting Rome is amazing. It’s been five years and it just seems too long. I know I’ll make it back but it can’t be soon enough. Thanks for helping spark my memories with your fantastic pictures. I especially like the Trevi Fountain at night. I sat there one night with my (now) wife drinking some wine and just talking about how lucky we were to be there in that moment. One of my favorite nights of my life.

    • I can tell from your comment that there really were sparks that night. 😀 Trevi Fountain is one of the main reasons why it is easy to put Rome on top.

  6. Hi There! I love Rome also and have revisited it many times. The last time I went I took my adult son and after dinner the first night we went to look at the Pantheon I fell and broke my hip!! I ended up in the popes hospital operated on and
    Never unpacked my suitcase! Interest
    Ing enough it was all free paid for by Italy. Carla

  7. I agree, Rome is simply beautiful. In fact, it’s beyond beautiful as shown by these spectacular images. You are blessed Bro to have seen all these. Thanks for sharing. I don’t know if I’ll ever see one in person but this post made me feel that I was there too.

  8. I am so determined to visit Italy and spend an entire month there, travelling all the way from the North to South. Want to check out Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice… everything! These photos are STUNNING!

    • …and Capri, Amalfi Coast, Lucca, Cinque Terre. And you might wanna throw in Leaning Tower of Pisa just to say you’ve gone there. It’s on the way to Florence.

  9. I can’t believe how amazing Rome looks. Some of those buildings must be thousands of years old. It’s phenomenal! I can see why you always kept taking the train back there. I would too. Thanks for posting.

    • Even just those unknown building are increble to see. It doesn’t have to a significant establishment or statue or anything, Rome is simple just beautiful!

  10. Thanks so much for visiting my post and pressing the “Like” button. I just took a journey through your site, and really enjoyed your travels. Your photographs are crisp and inviting. I plan to return to your marvelous blog. I like everything about it. But I could not find any commentary about you. By the way since California is one of your favorites, you should visit my recent posts about my trip to the West Coast and the golden city of San Francisco.

  11. Visiting Italy is a bucket list thing for me to do. You guys who have been there, sharing these drop-dead gorgeous shots make me want to sell everything I have, and go jump on a plane, and just do it. Thank you for sharing your adventures. 😉 These truly are beautiful captures.
