La settimana scorsa ci sono state le vacanze di primavera e ho colto l’occasione per viaggiare per la prima volta questo semestre. Sono andata prima a Roma e sono stata lì per tre giorni. All’inizio, è stato un po’ pazzesco, perchè c’era quel giorno uno sciopero dei mezzi in tutta l’Italia, e dovevo stare in fila per un’ora per un taxi da Tiburtina.

Ma valeva l’attesa: Roma è così bella e faceva caldo e c’era il sole quasi ogni giorno (una cosa che ho apprezzato più che mai dopo essere stata a Milano per due mesi). Nonostante fosse pieno di turisti, c’erano anche qualche posto più lontano dal centro storico che era tranquillo e calmo, ed in cui abitavano gli italiani veri.

E Roma nella sera? Semplicemente indescrivibile, quindi provo a mostrarvi per le foto.


Last week was spring break, and I took the chance to travel for the first time this semester. My first destination was Rome, where I stayed for three days. It was a bit crazy at first, because there was a nation-wide transportation strike the day I arrived, and I ended up waiting in an hour-long line for a taxi to get to the center of the city.

But it was definitely worth the wait; Rome is so beautiful, and it was warm and sunny almost every day (something that I appreciated all the more after being in Milan for two months). Although it was bustling with tourists, there were definitely also places further from the historical center that were quiet, peaceful, and inhabited by real Italians.

And Rome at night? Simply indescribable, so I’ll try to let my photos do the talking.

Her dream is to become a &quot;people&#39;s designer&quot;: far from the realms of both luxury and fast fashion, serving those in the average population who understand that clothing is meant to be cherished for years beyond a single season. When she isn&#39;t in the studio, Jocelyn likes to knit, study foreign languages, journal, cook, bike, play the guitar, run, and wash dishes, occasionally (somewhat) simultaneously.</span></p>
