August 2016 is one that will be remembered for years to come. So much happened during that month and I’m still trying to work out where all that time disappeared to. The other day, I thought Summer 2016 was almost over but luckily London is still experiencing an extended dose of the season.
Returning From An Intriguing Escape From A City
A friend got married in Assisi, Italy and I finally saw Rome with family in tow, after dreaming of seeing this place for decades of waiting. What seemed like an endless wait, eventually became a reality. What a wonderful trip and celebration. We also went on a couple of day trips to Brighton and Oxford. Traveling outside of the UK has always been an eye-opening experience; the way, the pace of life and the stunning scenery is so much different.
I strongly recommend that you go on an adventure or on some sort of holiday if you can. Travelling really does wonderful things to the mind. One thing I learned was that London made Rome look quite ancient, which was different. Londoners are exposed to many modern buildings springing up almost everywhere in the central parts but it was exciting to be in the midst of medieval architecture for a change.
Over the next coming weeks, I will share more travel experiences both in London and abroad and what it feels like returning from an intriguing escape from a city. Did you have a chance to get away this summer? Did you miss your destination? Feel free to drop me a line in the comment box.
I firmly agree with you, Bola. Travel is my life and provides the best memories and experiences. I can’t imagine how my life would have turned out if I hadn’t had the opportunity to travel.
The memories last a lifetime.
Lovely Pitcures! Thanks for Sharing. Enjoy your vacation
Thanks for visiting my blog Sushmita.:)
What beautiful photographs of Rome, particularly the first one. I am yet to visit Rome and have heard so many great things about it.
This year we went on day trips rather than a holiday. We are planning a long haul holiday early next year. Whilst the weather was sunny, we went to various beaches in Kent and Sussex. The kids had a ball!
There are so many great things about Rome. The architecture was what really stood out.
I guess I wasn’t a typical Londoner when I lived there because my favourite parts of the city are its many nice municipal parks. I love Green Park: it’s a wonderful place.
Green park is a wonderful park and all the others with the all greenery.
I also love visiting Rome. The Colisseum and the ruins around it are magnificent. I made a trip there in the Spring. I also become addicted to the food whenever I’m there.
The sight of the ruins were incredible and I became addicted to them more than the food suprisingly.
You certainly had a busy August. I love to travel, whether it is a longer trip far away or just a day trip. I agree it can be eye-opening. One of favourite places to travel to is your home city.
Hi Donna. It was a jam packed holiday. I look forward to seeing you in London one day.
