I just can’t explain my feelings of excitement upon booking my flights going home and back here after almost six (6) months of not seeing my family in the province. And since I am booking my flights in an eleventh (11th) hour and a very rush time, I need to look for the cheapest airfare available. After an hour of comparing an airline company from another, I finally confirmed my flights with Tiger Airways — SEAir. This would be my first fly in 2013!
With much excitement, as early as now, I am already packing my luggage and getting myself ready with all the presents for the kids and for the family which I still need to buy and all the stuff I need not to carry like bottles more than 500mL, any sharp objects, even single cigars, liquors and more. These all, of course, are already set in my mind to get ready for my more than a-week vacation at home.
In a very random talk, I have decided to go home. I just realized it’s almost six (6) months that I haven’t gone home. But since all things are unexpected, I need to look for the cheapest fare offered by the different airlines available in the country.

Maybe tomorrow, I can already decide which airline I might prefer to fly with. I am crossing fingers to book the cheapest from them.
Rome, a city for lovers of all ages, is also a city which beckons you and leaves you with memories for a lifetime. There is so much to see and do here, that no matter how old you are, you will love to just wander through the interesting streets, the monuments which stand as testimony to an amazing history, and the people who love to laugh and be joyous at all times. However, if you are young at heart, Rome is the right place to be.
Rome is renowned for its great food; after all, Italians have made pizza one of the most loved food choices in the world. There is a great restaurant in every street corner; there are cafes which are meeting points for friend and family. Above all, there are the fabulous and utterly yummy gelaterie which serve you Gelatos made with fresh fruits and flavors. But, do remember that Rome is full of places that serve gelatos, and you really and truly cannot go back without tasting a couple of them.
You may have seen the recent story in the news about a family of four being charged £54 for four ice-creams, it’s not uncommon to see these sky high prices so you have to be a little cautions when choosing where to sample the best Gelatos in Rome. In order to make life easier for you, here is a selection of some of the best gelato places around. The choices are always personal, but then food is always about personal preferences.
Gelateria I Caruso
Opened only a short while ago, this place specializes in true artisanal gelatos – made with natural ingredients in front of you. Their panna – or whipped cream is freshly made and even if you are on a diet, indulge yourself today. Try their renowned fondante – a creamy dark chocolate – a flavor to die for!
Close to Trevi Fountain, the gelatos here are soft and creamy. They take their work very seriously and they serve their gelatos without any other concoctions. They will not serve them in cones, since they feel that the cones take away from the true flavors. The lines are long, but the wait is worth it.
Ciampini offers you the added advantage of a great view, along with some excellent gelato. Located on the lovely Piazza San Lorenzo, for a small extra charge, you can sit outside and watch the world go by while having your castagna, a chestnut flavoured gelato with lovely bits of chestnut in it.
Il Gelato Di Claudio Torce
If you are looking for innovative flavors go to this gelaterie run by Claudio Torce, who most Romans believe is the master gelato maker. Go ahead; try out the various flavors, ranging from ricotta with coconut and chocolate chips, to chilli-flavoured chocolate. There are over 100 flavours; step out of your familiar world and try some new ones here.
Choose gelateries which have signs displayed from GamberoRosso – Italy’s most famous food guide – or the ones which are frequented by local residents. After all, they are the most discerning customers.
There are so many cheap flights to Rome available and you can find some really good accommodation options too; why not take advantage of this them and spend the money you have saved on some of the world’s finest foods.
