24 Hours In Rome

When I travel to new places, I love to take time to embrace the culture, the scenery, the food, and everything else about the country.  So when I was told I was going to Rome for just 24 hours, I immediately started to hyperventilate!  Surely 24 hours in such a romantic and historic city was not possible!?  But alas, it totally is!

With so many overwhelming things to do in such a short amount of time, your trip need not be stressful. Admittedly preference would be to stay longer to absorb and slowly digest every sight, sound and smell, but if 24 hours is all you have you can make it work and all on foot too.

 Here is my list of places to see:

  • The Spanish Steps 
  • Colosseum
  • Piazza Navona
  • The Vatican City
  • The Pantheon
  • Trevi Fountain
  • And don't forget an ice cream pit shop!

My background is as a wedding & lifestyle photographer, shooting both digital and film to create authentic, soft and natural fine art photographs. Working primarily with natural light to give my work a beautiful, light and airy touch infused with soft tones. 

I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary.  Coco Lane was founded as I wanted to create something that is about an experience, the slower pace of life, cosiness and candlelight, cuddling up on the sofa with loved ones, being with the people you love, sharing food with close friends, a feeling of home, nurturing a chosen career, wanderlust travels, savouring the small moments in everyday life and just being you and enjoying a cup of tea.

I'm excited to bring you stories that promote all those moments in life that give us value and meaning; inspiring  us to live beautifully.

"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life.  If you are interested in something, no matter what it is. Go at it full speed.  Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it.  Lukewarm is no good" - Roald Dahl
