Walking through northern Rome’s Dichotomies

Northern Rome Urban Walk“Me and you eating candies”

“Just tell me where you are and I will walk through all Rome”

Roman lovers’ words echoed in the air, then followed the river towards the city centre. We found them on the marbles of Ponte Milvio -a bridge in northern Rome that is the epitome of teenagers’ passion and handwritten declarations of love. Then we set them free under the vault of the bridge.

Abandoned Places in Israel

It’s getting in touch with like-minded people all over the world, meeting on the road and learning about respective cultures and countries.
