{Summer Diary} Italia

picture by Mu'izz Khalid
As a hopeless romantic hailing from Brunei, I am fairly certain that I have an affection for the summer heat. And when tossing coins in hope for love to return back are genetically coded in my DNAs I couldn't have asked for a better way to end my summer in Rome where the days are long; made for languid outdoor pursuits.
Rome is one of the busiest cities I've ever been to and although it is horribly overrun with noisy tourists and tacky souvenir stalls, the city still retains all of its Italian charm with cafes offering alfresco dining in every block and vespas running the streets. 
Me and my friends were lucky enough to have been accommodated in a cute house that looks like it is made for a movie set. I would definitely recommend House Trip for those who are looking for a comfortable stay for the holidays.
Prior to this little trip, I've acquired little knowledge of what to do in Italy. Although I know for one thing that a trip to Italy is not complete without tasting real gelato.

The Spanish Steps

St. Peter's Cathedral

Hope everyone had a great summer!

  23. Rome is one of my favourite cities to visit. I was there in August and although the heat was incredible for someone from a cooler climate, it was still a wonderful holiday. These photos are just lovely!
