We recently checked into the Charles Hotel in the heart of Harvard Square for a staycation in the city.
The hotel has undergone some recent renovations and although I didn't experience the "before", I certainly can appreciate the "after".
The rooms are tastefully appointed with classic details such as batten paneling walls, Shaker chairs as well as Harvard chairs, however the highlight was the mirror TV in the bathroom, which, let's be honest, is the coolest thing, ever.
Bonus points for complimentary wi-fi, absolutely always a necessity.

Full disclosure: I've never camped a day in my life.
Glamping on the other hand....where do I sign up?
I recently had the opportunity
From the moment I landed in Rome, I experienced, the sound of the lilting Italian language, the June heat on my skin, the smell of summer and witnessed a beautiful sunset on the way to central Rome.
I was in love.
Here, a few images taken around Rome, Trastevere, Florence and Vatican City....
