Great flight from Abu Dhabi to Rome. Caught train from airport into Rome which took about 30 minutes. Then the adventure started as we found our way bags and all searching for our apartment. Rollie bags and cobbled streets are interesting. Even though we thought we didn’t bring much luggage, it felt like I was dragging an elephant as my body was so tired after so little sleep.
Our first Airbnb apartment is to die for. It has natural timber bench tops and flooring. The kitchen was just made for Rob and I as we love to cook. It is filled with cooking oils, fresh garlic and spices to explore. One great thing about using Airbnb is people leave their bits so the next person can use. The apartment is spacious and has a delightful outdoor courtyard to make you feel at home. It has stone ceilings which are so beautiful to look at.
We decided to go for a quick wander up the street from our apartment to look for food. We found a great pizzeria down a quaint side street. It was full of people chatting, we waited only to find out the restaurant closed at 5pm and reopened at 7pm for dinner so we hit the streets and the photo tells all. Fresh pasta with wine, beer and fresh baked bread is what we took home to cook for dinner. At 6pm Rob woke me up from the lounge with my dinner plate still in my hand. There was no way I could wait to eat at the Pizzeria at 7pm as I was tucked in bed and snoring. Now it is 2am in the morning and both Rob and I are wide awake and ready to explore Rome…. maybe we need to wait a few hours before we hit the streets here!
