What a great grand time you seem to be having in Rome - I am almost jealous.

Ah, you've taken me back to two of my favourites spots in Rome! I remember the crowds at the Trevi Fountain, but did manage to throw some coins in. And we had pizza outside in the Piazza Navona our first night there. Oh, I want to go back SO bad! Hope you're having a dolce time! :D

Your Roman trip was much more recent than mine. I think we both should go back.

I'm saving for a trip to Italy. I want La Dolce Vita, for a little while at least. Great post.

How very clever to use La Dolce Vita for your D post.

I Dream of someday tossing some coins into the Trevi fountain myself.

Kjempeflott D-post! Virkelig morsomt å titte og lese på dette innlegget. Og så fikk jeg jo et glimt av yndlingsfontenen min:)

Jeg er nok ikke med på denne runden av Abc-wednesday. Men savner det mer og mer. Så kanskje jeg en dag slenger meg med alikevel;) Hvem vet:)

Gleder meg til fortsettelsen av dette innlegget;)

Ha en fortsatt flott dag, Arne:)
