there is one.


<span style="font-size: medium; color: #33cccc;"> And whenever I saw one, it was usually in a grand scale. I shook my head all the time. Just amazing!

</span>And

ruins everywhere!

<span style="font-size: medium; color: #33cccc;">These will speak for its monumental history.

TheGspotItaly: Vatican City

Filed under: Tour, Vacation, Destination, culture, leisure, Travel / Tags: Vatican City, Italy, rome

Of course,

a trip to Rome won't be complete without visiting the Vatican City.

Boy it was a warm day I remember. After doing some walking, I had to run back to the hotel because I felt like I was gonna pass out from being out and about very early in the day until about past noon.

Vacay-cay exhaustion =)

But my 2nd time @ the Vatican City was just like being there the first time, I was amazed and thrilled.

Just beautiful!

So beautiful

that we went back after our afternoon nap. Just to hang around the area.

<span style="font-size: medium; color: #33cccc;">Always nice to be back here. Such a special place.

Bye SmorgasBurg!

Filed under: culture, event, Food / Tags: teriyaki balls, biteme cheesecake, Mimi&Coco, Smorgasburg, cheesecake, Mario Batali, brooklyn, williamsburg

Yesterday, I went across the river to Williamsburg for the last SmorgasBurg of the season.

It was a beautiful day to end the food fair

and was attended by soooo many.

Got my favorite teriyaki balls from MiMi & CoCo NY

And a few from these vendors. I love food fair!

On my way home, I got some of these really yummmy cheesecakes.

<span style="font-size: medium; color: #33cccc;"><span style="font-size: medium; color: #33cccc;">As soon I got home, I sliced up some fresh mangoes and pulled out some dulce de leche and put it on the plain cheesecakes that I got.

I must happily admit, most of my Euros were spent on food. Deliciousness. And it was all worth it.

<span style="font-size: medium; color: #33cccc;">Far away from it now,

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/uYQP7ooimow" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

I've been day dreaming all about it.</span>

My love....

Best gelato, EVER!


Followed by a few more deliciousness.

TheGspotItaly:Barnum Cafe

Filed under: coffee shop, Tour, Vacation, Destination, culture, leisure, coffee, Food, Travel / Tags: Barnum Cafe, croissant, Italy, rome

Steps away from our hotel

was this cute coffee shop.

One day, before we started a day of leisure in Rome, we stopped by for a good start. The place was quiet, local and full of character. So nice being there.

<span style="color: #ff9900; font-size: medium;">Fresh OJ and freshly baked croissant. Typical in most Roman cafes. Yum!

</span>

<span style="color: #ff9900; font-size: medium;">Good start of the day.

After my lil trip to see the exhibit "Discovering Columbus",

I had the urge to see a movie.

Such a great movie, will make you hold onto your pee until take off.

Cabbage Plants

Filed under: plants / Tags: cabbage plants, Gardener

<span style="color: #339966; font-size: medium;">Mr. Gardener @ work was kind enough to give me a couple of these cabbage plants.

</span>

<span style="color: #339966; font-size: medium;">Back @ home, I've put them in these nice pots I have and set them up on the table in the balcony.

</span>

Something nice to look for Fall and Winter seasons. 

<span style="color: #339966; font-size: medium;">Supposed to be easy maintenance and can withstand light frosting. Hopefully it last.

</span>

Thank you, Mr. Gardener.

TheGspotItaly: Rome @ Night

Filed under: vacation holidays, tour and travel, Travel and Tour, culture & arts, leisure activity, Destination / Tags: Italy, rome

Walking @ night in Rome is another experience that one must enjoy and admire. When the streets, the people and its architecture become awesome orange-y backgrounds, illuminated by the street lights, the city transforms into a dramatic place.

<span style="color: #339966; font-size: medium;">As if you're in a film studio. Just beautiful.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/mmCbbtkRYR8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

It just wanna made me dance.</span>

Pictures were taken during the few nights we spent in Rome.


Just staring at these pictures, made me miss Rome. I could've easily walked all night just admiring everything about this city.

I'm glad that being back in Rome, this time, I got to spend more time. And there's still a lot I have missed seeing.
