counting the reasons.

Yet another reason why a trip to Rome is necessary {or rather, extremely desired and dreamt of}:

Colosseum's dungeons opening to visitors

Underground chambers once held gladiators, caged animals


Yes, it’s true … they are opening the dungeons up for tourism.  Erik will be so excited to know that someday, who knows when, but someday, hopefully-sooner-than-later-but-still-not-soon, he will be able to walk where to gladiators walked, where they sweat, where they fought. 

{I love his interest in history … I find it deeply romantic, intellectual, and mysterious.  Much like Rome.}


As I threw a coin into the Trevi Fountain years ago, one day I will return with Erik.
