The Beach At Ostio Attica Near Rome – A Photo Essay

At the end of our really lovely culture, food, fashion filled people gawking experience in Italy, we decided to spend our last day in Rome chilling out at the beach at Ostio Attica, a 45 minute train ride from the city.  It was the end of August, the beach had very few souls and we got some lovely sun and black sand.

Wishing You All An Amazing 2013 Filled With Awesome Experiences

Nine months ago, we launched Paupers Without Travel as a platform to express the joy experienced by our souls every time we touched a place new or familiar, tasted foods known and unknown and discovered deals that would help us fund one more trip without breaking the bank.  Did we expect to get a few readers?  We’d be lying if we said no.  But what we did not anticipate is the warmth, love and support shown by so many of you in liking and commenting on our posts and more importantly, sharing your journeys and experiences.

We were tickled pink when we got an email from WordPress last night telling us that  5,000 people attended the Aspen Food and Wine Festival. This blog had about 32,000 views in 2012. If each view were a foodie, this blog would power 6 festivals….

Ok, so to kick off the New Year, here is a tribute to some of the people we were blessed to see and learn from around the world.
