Forget about politics, am here to talk about the city of Beirut.
Where modern architecture is embedded with the old. Beirut is rich in history. The citizens of Beirut take good care of it. You walk between its streets to see modern on top of vintage. It gives you the feeling that layers of stories are topped one on top of the other. They leave the old in it, and just glue the new like plastic surgery on top of it.
Art and culture.
Beirut makes you feel at home, even if you are not Lebanese, you will still feel home. It may let you feel in chaos, as it is a very busy fast paced city, it can let you walk slow, but then it runs over you.
There is so much to find in Beirut, scattered hiding around the corners, ask about new areas, hip shops, look for them and browse them. There is too much of everything, and it is always changing, just don’t stop yourself from exploring the cities deepest wonders.
And once your anywhere, just look at the art that surrounds you. Beirut is full of art.
Have you been to the “Field of Flowers” ? Campo De’Fiori is an area located in the heart of Rome and it is not to be missed. If you haven’t been and wish to browse, then check out my page where ever you are around the world and have a taste of this incredibly urban area.
I have enjoyed walking around with my comfortable shoes, camera, and a small notebook, looking at the architecture, finding exquisite shops with colored bicycles around corners and little flower pots next to doors, the sound of different music coming out of each shop, listening to the people and their beautiful Italian language engage in laughter and discussions, reading and writing my favorite street finds, and looking into local designer boutique shops that consist of different character and unique furnishing. Camp De’Fiori makes you feel at home, it makes you feel like you belong, every inch of every street is taken care of with visible love, from colored chairs, to plants on its windows, colored walls, clean streets, the vintage doors and frames that speak history, different street tiling and wall stones. There is a feeling of genuine peace in Campo De’Fiori… take a look 🙂
It is the time of the year to travel, and at this exact same time last year, I decided to visit Rome.
Talk about Ancient Monuments in Rome? Here is a great one:
Castel Saint’Angelo (Castle of the Holy Angel) also known as The Mausoleum of Hadrian is a true gem to Rome. By clicking on the below photo you will be redirected to my photo diary of Saint’Angelo. Hope you enjoy it and leave me your comments. 🙂

Few days ago, I released a page on Rome under my Travel section.
It was very hard for me to decide on the layout and design for the post since I have spent around a month in Rome & I have researched the best of the city, and the best of it is many.
Therefore I decided to change the way I write my pages & instead of having too many photos & information in one page, I have decided to divide them into pages.
My first page is released & it is the summary of the 15 best areas to visit in Rome (that I found & know of) if you have been & think I have missed an area then please do not hesitate adding it in the “comment tab” & hopefully I will check it out in my next visit.
As for the ones traveling to Rome; well this page should be very helpful, but stay tuned for the upcoming pages that will include more details on where I recommend going in each area & what to do.
