Here in Rome, it has become clear to me that I have a new favorite thing to do — Wander & Pop.


That is, I WANDER around town, with no specific agenda, and POP into any place that looks interesting. It could be a church or a shop or a museum or a park or a whatever. Nothing specific, just the very act of walking around with this kind of freedom makes my heart happy.


This week, I have found great sights, interesting art exhibits, fascinating tidbits of history, meaningful spiritual connections, and fabulous gelato just by my method of wander & pop. Here are a few highlights from today.

Palazzo del Quirinale


Chiesa di San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane


Piazza Barberini


Ponte Sant’Angelo
