Travel Series: Rome & Italian Adventure

Sorry about bombarding you with a huge number of photo's of Rome and the Amalfi Coast, but it's just so pretty! 

And besides, I'll be spending about 10 days in and around Rome - I'm also doing Busabout's Italian Adventure, which is a three day trip to Pompeii, Capri, and the Amalfi Coast. It looks so charming and rustic and elegant and *swoon*.

What has also got me all abuzz with excitement is - I just paid for my flights over to Europe today! All paid and locked in! Dates are, I arrive Paris the 21st July, leave Paris the 23rd October. Three whole months of TRAVEL. 

I've been planning my OE (Overseas Experience), which is a Kiwi right of passage, for about 6 years now. All through uni, I was wanting to go, then I thought, I really need to save some money cause I was broke after uni, so I got a job. I will have been at my job for two years when I go - and my boss has said that I can go for three months and my job will be waiting when I get back! I just need to find someone (not so good as me but good enough to make sure my boss doesn't fire them right off the bat) to take over for three months!

So pretty... *sigh*.

These photo's are so gorgeous - I can't wait to visit these stunning cities with a huge amount of history and beauty to them. After Rome, I head to Greece for 12 days, then come back to Rome to explore some more. 


  1. Amazing pictures. I've always wanted to go to Greece and Rome, you're a lucky duck!

    1. I'm so excited! And me too! Since I heard all about my parent's adventures in Greece, and my friends who have lived in Rome in the past - it's all so exciting!

  2. Ahhh I am so jealous right now!! You are going to have such an amazing time!

    I can't wait to book my flights in!

  3. Whoa...that's some trip! Rome is incredible. I've been twice and I would go back again and again and again. Trastavere is a must!

  4. That's exciting news! Great that you're planning ahead and that you have time to think about what you want to see. Europe is waiting for you! xo


  5. Italy is my absolute favourite place in the world, I am so excited for you. You will be blown away by the beauty! I didn't get to the Amalfi Coast though, so I can't wait to see your pictures! Plus I went in winter so you will have a complete different experience in their summer.

  6. I'm so jealous that you'll be traveling to all these beautiful places! Italy is the number one place I would love to travel!

  7. Three months!! So awesome! Can't wait to book mine in :)
