I fell in love with Rome. I’ve been to many places in Europe and have lived in a few of them that gave me a similar feeling. But Rome is special, somehow. The people, the food, the architecture, the unbelievable energy coming from this City and its people.
I loved the buzzing sound of Motorcycles and people talking. How the sun hits the pavement and reflects on this centuries old buildings, caring so many secrets. You can hear them whisper if you stay long enough and care to listen.
Our last couple days we really stayed in the moment. We saw the Pantheon and the Trevi fountain; but mostly went with whatever felt good and enjoyed each others company.
I love going out early in the morning to search for the perfect espresso. I didn’t have to go far. The smell of this delicious fresh brewed dark brown liquid was guiding me in my search. The locals didn’t seem to mind us , at least I felt invisible at times but on those mornings I got a Buongiorno back and a smile. I felt home without being home or ever been at this place before. It just felt right. I soaked in every moment , every bit I was able to grab and I felt safe, appreciated of some sort understood and welcomed.
I managed to got a reservation for our last dinner at the rooftop of the Hotel I booked for us the year before. The food was incredible and the service even better. The entire restaurant, service people and customers celebrated our honeymoon with us. What an end to an amazing honeymoon!
Leaving this City was one of the harder things to do. You know when you are ready to go home, when you are ready to sleep in your own bed again, ready to put that suitcase away. I could have stayed in Rome forever, I know Dalila was more charmed with Ischia . We both agreed we will and need to go back to Italy. And we for sure will go back to Ischia and Rome. Napoli and Capri and maybe even go a bit more south then we did this time. Sicily is in our future.
Until then, this is the last of the adventures of our honeymoon in Europe. Closing out Honeymoon Europe 2018 : Eight Act :More of Rome with the announcement of the next travel blog; starting the journey of finding my Family in Bulgaria.
