Travel Journal: Trastevere, Roma

I am in love with Trastevere. It’s such a magical place. This Piazza is next to my little apt & it’s beautiful. If I had to describe Trastevere, I would say that it’s quaint, charming, romantic, easy going & very cool. There are lots of little cute shops & boutiques around, all kinds of cool little bars, beautiful restaurants & everything is interesting. People are so friendly here, I love that.
