Through my eyes: The Colosseum

I absolutely love visiting the Colosseum. It's one of those things I'm more than happy to dole out the entry fee to see over and again. It’s like walking onto a movie set; it's a truly surreal, incredible, awe-inspiring experience. To stand within this structure that was built around 2000 or so years ago and to imagine the absolute mayhem and carnage that went on in this place is just something else…

I love the moss and weeds growing on and around the remnants of this once great icon of a time passed. I love the enormous stone blocks with their deep cracks and crevices. I love the wide open space that allows you to just be still and look and let your imagination run wild. I adore it all, and I'm counting down the months until I get to stand in this magnificent piece of history once again.

I’m a Melbourne girl who loves to travel, eat, cook, explore, read, photograph, wander, learn, discover and especially write :) I use my blog as a kind of electronic journal and time capsule; I want to be able to look back over my adventures and remember them all, I want to share them with like-minded people, and I want to leave some sort of record of what life was like for a girl like me. Because, over time, things change. Lifestyles evolve and cities are re-built and cultures adapt; things are pretty good right here and now, and I want that to be recorded somewhere, so that in years to come people can see what it was like “back in the day…” :)Throughout my travels, I've also found that the one thing that connects us more strongly than anything else is food. No matter what we eat or how its prepared, food is universal; sitting down to a meal has an incredible power to cross cultural divides and bring people together, so I also write a lot about food I've eaten around the world and food I cook that's been inspired by my life and travels.
