One Word Sunday: Spiral

The subject of Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’ is Spiral. I immediately thought of this spiral staircase leading up to the Cabiria Restaurant at the Marriott Grand Hotel Flora in Rome. We were whisked up to the roof deck by elevator, but after dinner, even after a few glasses of wine, hubby and I decided that this was a far more exciting way to get back down to ground level. On my winding descent, I counted 186 steps.

Wishing you all a splendid Sunday and new week ahead. It seems impossible that we’re almost into September and with not a skerrick of travelling done this year.

Thursday’s Special: Descent

Paula’s Thursday’s Special theme is ‘Descent’, and I immediately thought of this photo, taken as we were leaving the Marriott’s Cabiria rooftop restaurant in Rome. The elevator was crowded and we didn’t want to join the queue, so we decided to try the rather impressive spiral staircase route instead. I counted 186 steps on my descent.


Wishing you all a lovely weekend. Our neighbours across the street have very kindly invited us for dinner tonight. They seem like a very sweet couple, and I’m so looking forward to getting to know them better.
