My husband has Parkinson's and in May he said he said he wanted to climb his favourite peak whilst he still can. What an adventure!
Then he said he wanted to visit our favourite city Rome, which while it is possibly one of the most beautiful in the world, isn't exactly the safest in my opinion. Why so?
The traffic in Rome is treacherous, unpredictable and terrifying! It doesn't always stop at the lights; they will drive up on the pavements (sidewalks) they carry on driving as you cross the road and weave around you as you cross. The lights change very quickly and turn whilst people are still crossing over. Plus, it happens sometimes that motor cyclists drive along and steal your bag if it is roadside. And this …. Is where my beloved wanted to go, to the most beautiful city on earth in our opinion.
The motor cyclists and bags... I could cope with, but the thought of weaving my husband P across Roman traffic filled me with dread and would need me to be constantly alert when we flew in to Rome on Saturday just gone for a long weekend.
Obviously we are home now, so we managed it. Here's a photo post of our trip which became a wedding anniversary trip.
All photos were taken by me.
