When in Rome…
Formula E has been an amazing experience for me, and has meant I’ve been able to travel even further around the world. Working primarily as a digital nomad has meant that incorporating the work into my life has been so much easier, another opportunity I probably would;dn’t have been able to take had I been working the standard 9 to 5. This past month, the Formula E race was in Rome, and so I took full advantage of roaming the streets, exploring cat cafes and visiting Vatican City because, well, when in Rome.
‘A heady mix of haunting ruins, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life, Italy’s hot-blooded capital is one of the world’s most romantic and inspiring cities.’ (Lonely Planet)
The theme of this trip ended up being a ‘when in Rome’ type scenario, taking advantage of the things you can only do when in Rome – an approach I try to take with most trips. So I visited some familiar places, and some new ones too – one of which being Rome’s first Cat Cafe: ‘Romeow‘.
I’d never been to one before, so I was pretty excited at the concept and I was not disappointed. The cats run around, and they have various toys and apparatus for the cats so they’re constantly entertained. The food is also amazing, what else would you expect from Rome?! Overall it was a lovely cafe/bistro, with a great atmosphere and food – suitable for all the family – so I would 100% recommend taking a visit next time you’re in Rome!
As some of you may or may not know, Rome/Italy was one of our first trips as the ‘Digital Nomad Family’ and it’s where we took one of our most used photos – a photo of the 5 of us in front of the Trevi Fountain. On our last trip there we visited Vatican City and explored all the main things, as you do when in Rome, but on this trip I wanted to explore some of them more.
Last time we went we visited Vatican City, but we just missed going into the Sistine Chapel – go it was a must for me this time. Vatican City was as stunning as ever, the architecture second to none and the Sistine Chapel – which I’m sure you’ll know if you’ve been – only tops it. It was completely and utterly breathtaking and I would strongly urge you to go if the opportunity ever arises.
Until next time!
