When in Rome...

We had a lovely time in Rome this week!

We set off for the airport at 4am on Monday, and we arrived at Ciampino Airport at about 10:15am Rome time.  We had booked a self-catering apartment, close to Vatican City, for 3 nights, so spent Tuesday and Wednesday trying to ensure we saw everything we wanted to see:

Vatican City

Palatine Hill

Colosseum

Italian Ice-Cream!
Vatican Museums

Trevi Fountain...Big disappointment!

Fountain at the bottom of the Spanish Steps...All boarded up!

The Pope!
We had a fabulous time, but wish we had another day or two to spend there... We will have to go back one day!

Today I managed to cross off another item on my bucket list, as I ran a 10K race!  It was my first one, and considering I only started running at the end of March this year, I am well chuffed with my time of 1:25:54... My running buddy and I are now looking at half and full marathons for next year!  Once you have the running bug, you can't stop!

Running Buddies!

My first 10K medal

Sprint finish!
No stitching at all this week, but I'll be doing some next week, as I am off work for another week.

Happy Stitching!
