I have once again let the ball drop on the blogging. The last week in Tropea was filled with lots and lots of planning. We now have our places for Istanbul and Spain booked. We also found a place in Rome which is where we currently are. Also figuring out transportation between all of these. Very much makes sense why people can spend up to 8 hours for every 1 hour of travel. Arriving in Rome we know some of the epic sites, but that is about it. This whole trip is by the seat of our pants. TripAdvisor is a wonderful tool to help us.
Anyway, last time I left you was just outside our apartment door. Once you entre you are greeted by this 1721 courtyard. You are actually looking at the reverse side of the front door. Yes, that is our laundry on the left side. That saga continued right up until we left. A very beautiful, and cold, courtyard to our place
I'll head up the right staircase. Looking back you can view up into the open air design.
Turning around we can see the fridge and the other side of the room. Like I said, cozy :)
This was our kitchen, kind of. Really wishing I took photos. Anyway. This is the kitchen from another apartment. So imagine instead of that big table, our little table. Also take away all those wonderful cupboards. Oh, and shrink the room to the above photos. Again, cozy but fun. Cooking with gas was really nice. Different and a bit to get used to, but I really like it.
