First time I visited Rome was during my January 2015 birthday. Since then I have visited a couple more times. Rome is one of those cities you keep coming back to. I absolutely love the colors of this city, the people, the language, the FOOD! Everything about Rome is absolutely beautiful. This photographic blog post is from my most recent trip last month. Food For Breakfast I would usually have some sort of a delicious pastry & coffee For Lunch, it was always pasta. My favorite restaurant is Trattoria da Enzo in Trastevere. I highly suggest you arrive at 12:30pm when lunch starts or earlier, because otherwise you will be waiting in line. The food is very fresh here & prices are excellent! In Afternoon, I would usually have gelato! And I have concluded that Venchi is my favorite! Sometimes I also had Aperol Spritz which is a local favorite. I also tried Suppli for the first time which are fried balls made out of rice, tomato and cheese. They are very delicious & make …

Half a year has already gone by, how crazy is that? I visited some new countries and cities this year & so far my Travel Adventures have been awesome! At the moment I have no new travel plans set just yet, as I am now in a money making mode. I will definitely take one or two small trips before the end of the year, then one in January for my birthday again as well as April and then Stockholm in July 2016 for TBEX Europe. The next new cities I plan to visit are: Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Lisbon & Stockholm. Let’s get to the list of Favorites for 2015 – Highlight the photo for further information I am not including Cyprus on the list because I am making a separate Best Of Cyprus Post.
For easier navigation, I created separate pages above for countries I’ve visited this year so far. I am still in the process of creating many posts for Spain and some on Italy and Portugal too.

View of R’domus from the street During my first full day in Porto, after some sightseeing and a river cruise, I came across R’domus restaurant and I’m super happy that I did. There was a big sign on the street advertising their very affordable meal of the day which is what got my attention in the first place. Henrique, Paulo and Daniella, the three siblings that work at this local restaurant, are absolutely amazing! They really fed me well 🙂 In fact they fed me so well with their delicious food, I had to take dessert home, and that never happens! R’domus offers very tasty Portuguese food for a very low price. My suggestion for you is that you skip the little overpriced riverside tapas places and you come straight here for a proper full meal. You won’t regret it! You should most definitely order the Meal of the Day. There will always be some sort of delicious meat on the menu, and the day I visited, they had sausages, but since I don’t eat meat anymore, I went for their fried …
