When in Rome, you won’t forget to do the usual touristy things like visit the Trevi Fountain
First you’ll want to photograph just about any part of it with other people in it
Then you’ll probably want to pick on an Italian-looking person to be in the picture
Then you’ll want to photograph the top of the structure
The middle of the structure
And other people taking better pictures of it
Don’t forget to take pictures that include the bottom of the structure showing the water.
Now, you’ll want to go elsewhere, and take more pictures
And somewhere else again
Take a picture from another angle
And then walk around the corner
Don’t forget to just take pictures of people, any people – don’t even ask them.
Don’t forget the street scenes
Don’t forget to get the Italian flag in your pictures
Did I mention that you are supposed to get the numerous statues too that are all over the place?
Can’t resist throwing in one more picture of the Trevi Fountain.
Did I also tell you that you should just about take pictures of everything?
Also, one more thing……..when in Rome, forget about home!
I love traveling, but unfortunately can’t get away this year – it’s a far cry from last year when I went to Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD and then on a cruise on the Enchantment of The Seas to Bermuda.
However, San Diego is a place where you can enjoy living, and vacation here every day of the year with the right mindset. This is not just home, but a vacation paradise. This year, instead of renting out my timeshare at the Grand Pacific Palisades, I took a working holiday – we stayed at the Palisades for seven days even though I had to work – but I was on holiday in the evenings! My kids were on holiday all day long – after all it’s their vacation from school. By staying at this resort (only twenty minutes away from my home) it mostly gave my kids the chance to get away from our house, and have a change of scenery and experience the swimming pool every day, and feel like we were on holiday.
Sometimes, you just have to stay at home or near home.
The view from the balcony in the evening:
I came home from work and took my little girl to the swimming pool
It’s a pretty place for a walk in the evenings
Then there’s neighboring Oceanside to explore (only ten minutes north of Carlsbad):
Life’s just a beach!
Then on the weekend with Legoland just across the street, who could resist, and guess who loves Legoland?
Keep dreaming of holidays during your holiday when the Taj Mahal presents itself to you at Legoland!
Fancy going to India to see this beauty? The one and only time that I went to India – I was mesmerized by the real Taj Mahal, it’s no wonder it’s one of the seven wonders of the world! it really is breathtaking, and it’s also a beautiful sight to behold at Legoland.
I just have to show the Taj Mahal at Legoland again to you – can you believe the creativity?
Now, we were transported to Australia! We were on a boat ride and I didn’t get a very good picture of the Sydney Opera House, but here are two of them:
Next, we were transported to Paris, France!
Next, we were presented with images of Egypt……don’t say Legoland is not worldly!
What’s not to like about staying in your own home turf once in a while and vacationing at home? San Diego is a great place to staycation. However, if you don’t live here, it’s a really nice place to vacation.
