“My sister found out about the surprise destination at the airport as I took her to the gate. She hasn’t visited Rome before, yet as a vegan foodie she has kept this city on her radar as a weekend destination. Thus, while in Rome, we enjoyed up-and-coming vegan restaurants. Ops! became our favourite place to eat out and lounge. We also grabbed several flavourful vegan cheeses from Dall’Albero to bring back home.

“Nevertheless, dining wasn’t the only enjoyable experience while in Rome. We also rented the awkward squeaky two-people bike at Villa Borghese, enjoyed the art, and, of course, roamed the cozy streets (and roofs) of Trastevere while Roberta documented our camera-shy-to-camera-friendly experience. The photo shoot too was a surprise present to my sister, whose buttons I love to press every now and then. I am a strong believer that travel and experiences build character and open one’s eyes and I love the fact that Roberta has beautifully captured a part of it. Thanks Roberta! You are amazing!” – Aura
