VISITING THE COLOSSEUM, ROMAN FORUM, AND PALATINE HILL

A visit to the Colosseum is at the top of the list for any first time visitor to Rome. This was my second trip to Rome but my first visit to the Colosseum.  The Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill are next to the Colosseum and your admission ticket coveres all three places.

You can read about my visit to the Colosseum on my travel blog Southern Blue Traveler.  

I have added inforamtion that may be helpful before you arrive and give you an idea of what to expect when you get there.

I ran across this home while searching for Christmas Farmhouse ideas and I had to share.  I love the pops of red plaid against the white walls and furnishing.  You can see the entire Christmas home tour at Home Remedies.

While you are there, check out how the home looks the rest of the year.  The home has been renovated and decorated in a mix of styles including farmhouse, cottage, and vintage.  You can check out how they flawlessly mix all of the styles HERE.

SENGLEA, MALTA

SENGLEA, MALTA

Senglea is the smallest of  the Three Cities in the Cottonera. It is situated on a peninsula protruding into the Grand Harbor, facing the charming walled city of Valletta.  I had never heard of Senglea, Malta before my visit there last week.

We were on Airbnb looking for places to stay and we ran across this amazing apartment, in a beautiful location, and at a great price.  The apartment was beyond our expectations (you can see the apartment HERE) and the neighborhood was perfect.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS ~ FIRST AID

Image result for emergency preparedness first aid kit RED CROSS

One of the most important steps in being prepared for an emergency is to have a first aid kit.  I’m not talking about the band-aids and antibiotic salve in your cabinet but a first aid kit that will help in the event that you can not get medical care and paramedics are unable to get to you.

PREPARE YOU FIRST AID KIT

1.  Choose a box, tub, tackle box, etc for your First Aid Kit.

2. Gather  your  supplies and medication and organize them into your kit, tub, etc.

3. Make a list of  medications / supplies and keep in your first aid kit or your emergency binder. If you are unsure what should go in  your emergency binder, just do a google search.  There is a ton of information on the subject or watch one of the many videos on YouTube.

4. Locate your medical supplies in a easy to reach location.

Not sure what goes into your first aid kit?  You will need to decide that for yourself.

After doing extensive searches I realize there is no “one-size-fits-all” list but there are some supplies that seems to be on most lists.  I have these items below.
