Wordless Wednesday


The Colosseum

The Roman Forum (side by side with the Colosseum)

Those were my favorite boots, but the streets of Rome claimed the heel.  Lesson learned...pack sneakers when traveling. :)

    1. It was raining the first few days when we came out (but still lovely). When the sun came out it was a whole different city. The steps came alive, artists were out, people were everywhere! It was an amazing transformation!

  6. Lovely photos! I wore walking shoes in Paris for just that reason. Relief! I climbed so many stairs, I think my legs would have given out in heeled boots!

    1. Seems like a lot of places in Europe have a ton of stairs. :) Those heels were MORE comfy than sneakers or flats...but generally, you're right...:)

  9. Oh for sure pack a few good pair, although I remember the Italianos loving to dress up. I say be a tourist & protect ur wallet & feet.
    Was it wonderful?

    1. Yes, wonderful! One of the prettiest places we've been.

  10. I bet that was an amazing trip!!! And I've learned the hard way about bringing good shoes too!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's hard to have room for shoes too, because you don't want them to get squished. Someone should invent a shoe travler that doesn't take up a lot of room but still protects your shoes, lol.

      Delete
  11. That must have been such an amazing trip!! Bet you had a great time even though your shop broke :(

    Happy WW and thanks for linking up!

    1. Thank you, Lisa. It was a nice trip. Seeing the pics makes me want to travel (but it doesn't take much to make me WANT to travel). :)

  13. So beautiful. Rome just seems like such a laid back place. I'd also love to see it in person some day!

    1. It is laid back, that's a good description! And there's great shopping if you can afford it (which we couldn't, but the Gucci store was sure fabulous to look through ;) ).

  14. Sorry to hear about the heel on your boot, but I can't think of a better place to lose it! lol! The Roman forum is amazing.

  25. Enjoy your pictures. I've been to Milan and Bologna, but not Rome. That must have been a great trip for you -- okay . . . except for the boots. Sneakers are the way to go with some dress shoes for special occasions.

    1. I would love to see both...there's so many places to see, but so little time to do it. Wish I'd have started the love of travel much earlier in my life. :)

  35. I'm laughing because before I read your caption, I was looking at your boots, wondering how you managed to walk around with them! I've had to walk all the time now, and my gorgeous shoes and boots sit there collecting dust! what's a gal to do!!!! Another fun and unbelievable vacation. You have got me thinking I can't wait to go on a nice vacation!

    1. Those boots were as comfy as any sneaker. I was so sad to see them go, lol. If you're going to lose a heel though, it might as well be in Rome, yes? :)

      Traveling makes me happy. I'd do it way more often if I could.

  36. Oh, to be able to travel! I was in Canada once (for 4 hours) about 40 years ago - Niagra Falls in FEBRUARY - the Falls were just about frozen and so was I. That was my "trip abroad"! Even missing the boot heel - you look great - I envy you!

  42. Any serious walking should be done in sneakers! I'm sure the trip was worth losing your heel to your boots-were you able to get them repaired?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I did not have them repaired. If I had been home I would have, but I just let them go. And you are so right about sneakers. I always take a pair now, just in case.

  51. Great pics! They bring back so many memories!!! My family and I go to Sardinia, Italy every summer and often stop in Rome or go south to the Amalfi Coast as a "side" vacation! This was a post (Wordless Wednesday) from last year in Sardinia...you should check it out and make Sardinia your next vacation destination ;-)))

  52. This is on my bucket list. I'd love to visit Rome someday...I love history and Rome looks like it is full of fascinating stories of the past.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Roman streets claimed a pair of shoes from me too. My feet hurt so badly from walking that I threw them away back at the hotel. Sneakers definitely are best when sight seeing.

    ReplyDelete
  54. WOW! I would love to be able to touch and walk where others have walked in that time, simply amazing.
