After seeing trees looking rather bald during the winter, its lovely to see them start to bloom again. So very pretty!
Cart and I were at Villa Pamphili to admire the beautiful surroundings here. I don’t think that Villa Pamphili is a touristy destination, compared to the Colosseo and the Pantheon and all but if you have the time, I feel that its a nice place to visit and spend time in anyway.
Initially I wanted to shoot a video for my next video blog, but upon seeing all the pretty growth and greenery, I actually forgotten all about it.
Villa Pamphili started out as a housing area by a dude called Pamfilio Pamfili – a really really rich guy. Today, it is now a park which is free to be enjoyed by everyone.
Walking in Villa Pamphili is very relaxing. And it makes you forget that you are in Rome, with the traffic and the graffiti and everything because all that you can see in front of you, is the nature and greenery.
Its such a lovely day. And the temperature is perfect for me! Not too freezing cold but comfortable enough to spend time out. I could change to my lighter coat and I even saw some people wearing short tees even. Sometimes I worry how I will react when going back to hot hot hot Singapore.
Anyway! I love seeing families having picnics together. And there were a group of
juvenile delinquents friends playing football and frisbie. Its just idyllic seeing people just lying around on the grass, basking in the sun. See! Italians do it! Not just Singaporean foreign talents! 😛
Wah! I feel like I’m in Europe!
I even spotted out a couple of people studying and reading underneath a tree. To me, its a little clique-ish but I suppose that more inducing to study that way. Definitely way better than in a fast food restaurant! I don’t know about you, but during exam periods in Singapore, the libraries, fast food restaurants and even the airport would be packed with kids with books and notes. Mostly on account of the places being air conditioned and more comfortable to study.
But in any case, my mind started to wander and realise that there were heaps of wonderful spots here for photoshoots! My cousin, Fuzzy would have a blast doing a cosplay here. Like this spot here.
I’m not fond of Star Wars, but I could totally see Anakin and Padme having a picnic here. Maybe a bridal shoot would be great too? Would it be too late for Cart and me to have another one?
And I stumbled upon this very cool looking tree.
Check it out, a tree which has branches like an open palm. It’ll only be a short while till someone realises this and don a faerie outfit complete with wings and camwhore here.
It wont be me though
