We had a really good lunch at Cacio e Pepe, one of the restaurants featured in the Rome episode of Anthony Bourdain's Layover series. I had, well, their Cacio e Pepe: a simple but glorious dish consisting of fresh, homemade pasta, cheese, and pepper. #rome #italy #travel #food #cacioepepe


Sadly, it's our last night in Italy. Before its end, I challenged myself to take a night photo of the Colosseum. It's hard to get a good vantage point since it is always surrounded by people, and half of it is currently covered in scaffolding for restoration. I managed to catch this one during Blue Hour, and although it's not ideal, it sums up a Rome that I will remember–a bustling contradiction of the modern and the ancient–its people and lights reflected on the rain-slicked streets. What a beautiful place! #rome #italy #colosseum #vacation #travel #nightphotography #italia


Can you spot the penis arrow? These ingenious signs led the sailors and visitors to Ponpei, who spoke all different kinds of languages, straight to the brothel. #italy #pompei #vacation
