After some serious discussions, we ended up having a 4-days holiday in Rome. This Pinay won of course versus poor hapless German. Had to put my ugly feet down when Mann started planning one fishing trip after another.
Like President Duterte who seeks to meet other Filipinos whenever he is abroad, we seek Filipino Restaurants. There are quite a lot in Rome but we recommend Asian Delight. Restaurant is filled with mostly Filipinos and menu of the day cost around 5 euro and it comes with FREE soup and kimchi. Experience in Asian Delight was good except if you have a child who knows some strange Filipino words like “Papa Otot” (Papa farted), which she likes to announce out loud everytime Mann moves his chair.
And of course, we tried Italian food too especially gelato. The pizza and pasta we had at Fresco in Termini, was really good and we only paid 20 euro in total.
Mann cares for sea, river or fishes while I care for overlooking views and old stones. Girl however will probably trade everything for a gelato and a good slide or swing if she can have her way. We always try to plan our activities that will make everyone happy.
Bioparco Zoo and parks to run around and chase animals like cats and birds for our girl.
For Mann, we took an hour train to Santa Severa to see the sea. It was a nice, relax day and we were able to see the countryside too and smell sea air. I do missed that smell. One-way train ticket cost 4 euro per person and good thing we brought some food and water because shops are closed on Sundays.
As for me, I was extremely happy to be at the terrace in Pincio and see ROME from above. Wouldn’t mind seeing the view from the dome in St. Peter’s Basilica too but it cost some euros and hundreds of people are falling in line waiting for their turn. The rest, we simply walk from one beautiful old stones to another all over the city.
