i finally got around to posting more photos from my short sidetrip to rome – here’s the part 1 and a “pilgrimage” to santa maria novella . didn’t do much in rome since i really just felt like walking around. i’m pretty boring like dut.
i stayed in this lovely converted convent just a mere 5-minute walk to the vatican. it’s santa maria alle fornaci. it’s clean, decent, accessible and very affordable. the people who stay here are mostly retirees and pilgrims.
i actually befriended a few traveling nuns and priests. and nope, still not going in an actual convent. hehehe.
but my favorite part about fornaci is the breakfast. maybe i’m a breakfast person but they served a pretty good meal! i loved the dry meats and cheese. the muesli was also very good. and don’t get me started with the coffee. it was REALLY good.
so here a few obligatory rome photos:
i really liked this house. so pretty!
yes, i can be a carbonara and iced tea girl, too. fine, i ordered a coke light.
and i also threw a few coins into the fontana de trevi.
