A Sunday with Cheese, Chilli and Beer


Kathventures

Like all of our other friends last weekend, Aaron and I headed to a festival. Oh, no… notĀ thatĀ festival. Aaron and I are massive foodies and Aaron is also super interested in growing his own vegetables. A peek out of the window Sunday morning revealed an overcast but perfectly pleasant day ahead (and a pretend photographer’s […]

Villa Borghese | When in Rome


Kathventures

Villa Borghese is a public park that is charming for all of the right reasons; and some of the wrong reasons. Probably season-dependent, but the grass was tired and unkept.

Rome from my Favourite Points of View


Kathventures

A bumpy and brilliant skyline against easy blue sky and fluffy white clouds. Picture perfect green dots that protect the river elegantly flowing through the city.

Day One: Rome-ing Around | When in Rome

Friday 16th: 4am wake up. Time for Rome. I travelled to London the previous evening, silver rucksack packed; purple suitcase […]

What’s in my Backpack? | Summer City Break Essentials


Kathventures

Tomorrow my brother and I are heading to (what have I heard is) the beautiful city of Rome. After months of stalking Instagram accounts, reading tales of bloggers in Rome and excitedly flicking through my Lonely Planet guide, I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. Although I am questioning the practicality of my (what I […]
