If someone told me right now that there’s a more beautiful city than Rome, it would be very hard for me to believe it, because even when I’m still far from knowing most of Europe, I think Italy is a place where, as a mexican, you can feel it like home: people is vibrant, food is abundant, there is a love for the good life, you get compliments over the street, they yell, laugh out loud and chat from balcony to balcony, and you may think they’re arguing but they’re actually discussing the soccer game from last night. And that’s not even counting the importance of mothers in every family and kitchen, have I told you the size of the portions are huge? Even if I tried, I couldn’t go through the full meal of antipasto, primo piatti with bread, followed by a secondo piatti and finished with a big tiramisú, all with wine.
Rome has won my heart in only five days and a short series of posts in the blog, starting with the outfits I wore and took with me sharing only one suitcase with my boyfriend. Because when you travel for pleasure, you don’t need to take half of your wardrobe neither a dozen of bags. Remember: the less you carry in your suitcase, the more you can buy in your trip (and that never hurts, like eating a gelato everyday when you’re in Rome).
