In this week’s round-up of our ‘photo a day project’, we check off a few final “biggies” in Paris and get acquainted with our new four-legged friends in Rome.
Here’s what we got up to this week!
August 4th 2014. Champ de Mars. After almost three full weeks in Paris we thought it was about time to scale the Eiffel Tower and view this amazing city by night. We took the stairs to the second viewing platform, then took the lift right to the very top because stairs up the second half wasn't an option. Would you climb all the way up to the top given the opportunity?
August 5th 2014. Château de Versailles. If it wasn't considered one of the most gorgeous palaces and gardens in all of Europe, we would have found a cute little cafe in the township to while away the 2 hours it took to get through security. What's the longest you've ever had to wait in line and what for?
August 6th 2014. Reflected tower. One final stroll under the Eiffel Tower before continuing our adventures in Italy. Au revoir Paris, until next time.
August 7th 2014. Road to Rome. First order of business in Italy. Wander around this awe-inspiring structure, which until now has only been an image admired in history books.
August 8th 2014. Meet Clara. Originally from Germany, now living in Rome, and one of the gorgeous cats we are looking after for the next two weeks! Likes: playing with water and hanging out on the balcony. Favourite nap spot in the house: this window sill.
Photo a day project: August 9th 2014. Meet Steinway. Originally from Switzerland, now Rome based, and the other kitty we are taking care of here in Italy. Likes: EATING and stealing prime nap spots from Clara. Favourite lounging around spots: the bed and this deck chair.
August 10th 2014. Pyramid of Cestius. We're fascinated by ancient Egypt and its influence on civilizations around the world. So when we discovered that Rome had its very own pyramid, built between the 18th and 12th century BC, we had to drop by and have a look. Nowhere near as large as the Great Pyramids of Giza but it's pretty impressive and better preserved.
