I LOVE FLYING TO ROME and the Baths of Caracalla are a beauty to behold. I have passed by them many times, but have never visited. Next time I’m in Rome, I’m going here, check it out:
I like a very particular kind of French red wine, a Brouilly, not easily found in the United States. I can find it readily in France, but if I quit flying at the end of 2013, I will need a continued supply. To that end, I have found a good website that finds rather obscure and popular wines. Enjoy…
How many times have I been to Rome only to discover that I have so much more to see and do? That’s one reason why I am so charmed by the eternal city, you never really finish visiting here ~ there will always be something new.
I am always amazed that the bulk of my passengers run from the plane at FCO to their cruise ships at Civitavecchia Port and miss all the splendor that is Rome itself.
Do yourself a favor, take some time and explore (ON FOOT) some of the more major places in Rome.
Do’s / Don’ts:
There are so many more recommendations that I will have to come back to this post from time to time. If Rome is in your future, I would suggest “following” this post in particular. Like Rick Steves, this is my Europe and I enjoy sharing! Am also sort of a history buff, so I tend towards things that are more important historically.
I have decided that instead of having a running, mental bucket list, it would be better to actually write it down, check off what has been done and update it from time to time. I will also ask my friends, family and visitors to help me think of new things to do that will continue to enrich my life.
Why have a bucket list at all? Many that know me, know that I have had two brain tumors, my hips replaced and am HIV-positive. I have an “understanding” with God that I cannot leave this planet until my bucket list is empty (to make up for the madness that has since entered my life). I have read many entries of the books 1000 Things to See/Do Before You Die, <flash>I DON’T recommend them.</flash> The problem is that although they may be a good starting point, they are not YOUR lists and so may have little in common with you, as was the case with me. If you truly need to see them, stop by the library, buying these books is not worth the money, in my opinion. P.S. You can also Google “bucket list” and get some other ideas, like I did. So to that end, I present my bucket list, now the date that I think of ideas. If the item is barred, it has been completed and will also have the date it was fulfilled!The list is in no particular order and will not certainly be fulfilled in order…
… this ought to be enough to get me started, but by no means is complete. I will keep adding to my list continuously as I see things that catch my eye and ear. As I mentioned, I invite the reader to comment and maybe make a suggestion ( I will see if it fits in my life view ). To you all, I wish a long and very fulfilled life!
I'm going to Argentina!! Travel vicariously through me!
