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.

Descending the spiral staircase for this week’s WPC

Whilst visiting Rome in 2011, we  had a delicious four-course dinner at The Cabiria Restaurant on the Via Veneto. We ate our meal up on the roof terrace overlooking the city, whilst being serenaded by a wonderful guitarist and singer. At the end of the evening, there was a long line of people waiting for the elevator which could take only seven  at a time, so a few of us opted to go down this spiral staircase. It was a very steep and winding descent….. 186 steps. Fortunately I’d only had only one glass of wine, so made it safely to the bottom.
