The Trevi Fountain

Thursday, June 18, 2015

We are so incredibly far behind in blogging that I don't even know what to start with... But I guess it's better to start somewhere than to not start at all. We've already managed to equal the total number of posts from last year! What a dismal year 2014 was for blogging... Anyway, this post takes us way back to November 2013 in Rome, when Ari and I were still simply boyfriend and girlfriend.

The Trevi fountain is a 250+ year old fountain nestled in the heart of Rome. It was one of our favourite places to walk past and an awesome spot to chill out with gelato. Our accommodation was just around the corner so after a long day of sightseeing we would just swing by, find a seat and watch the hoards of tourists throw coins into the fountain.

The fountain is truly impressive in scale so much so we could not get a decent picture of it. Plus it was always so crowded but even that could not take away from how spectacular it was.

We threw a couple of hundred Bahraini fils (equal to 25 Aussie cents back then) in there and made a token wish. Can't remember what I wished for back then but if was "to be engaged", it sure did come true lol

The Trevi fountain by day is not as romantic as at night when it is all lit with up lighting and is heaps more crowded too.

There's something about the sound of falling water that is so calming and inducive of reflective thoughts. Perhaps that's why we enjoyed it so much.
