From Rome, With Love

Last summer, not long after my husband and I came home from a vacation to Rome, we hiked to Knivskjellodden – the northernmost point of Europe.  With the splendor of Rome fresh on our minds, we couldn’t help but smile when we came upon a friendly greeting from some Italian hikers:

I hope they enjoyed the North Cape as much as we enjoyed Rome.  In fact, we loved it so much, we’re headed there tomorrow.  And as a tribute to two of my favorite places in the world, I’d like to share some photos that explore some of the similarities and differences between Rome and the North Cape.

So without further ado, To Nordkapp, From Rome With Love!

And for those of you trivia buffs that like to collect random facts:  If you turned Norway upside down, Nordkapp would reach down to Rome.

      I love that bike as well. In fact, before I took the shot, I talked with the old fisherman that rides it everyday down to his boat. I don’t know how he doesn’t crash on the icy roads with his 1960’s bike. Amazing.
