I’m not sure what’s more fascinating here....my tiny vintage iPhone? Or the ancient ruined Roman settlement of Herculaneum that I’m attempting to photograph with said vintage iPhone? 🤔jk!😉 We don’t hear much about Herculaneum in the states when we’re taught about Pompeii and the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD (thank you google;)), but Herculaneum was actually preserved far better than Pompeii when it was overtaken by the volcano, so even food items and surviving wooden structures were revealed when excavations began. Herculaneum was a small settlement compared to the bustling neighboring city of Pompeii, but it was a wealthier population, so the surviving artwork is just INNNSAAANE YALL! 🙌🏼 🎨 If you find yourself in this neck of the woods, definitely don’t skip visiting Herculaneum (Ercolano)🙅🏼‍♀️ It’s less crowded than Pompeii, so take @ricksteveseurope advice and head here early, grab lunch, then finish your day getting lost in the maze of the once busy streets of Pompeii. Pompeii is less crowded in the afternoon (and thankfully less hot later in the day during the summer months☀️🔥), so you’ll often feel like you have the place to yourself, which is pretty awesome if you ask me🤷🏼‍♀️ #ercolano #herculaneum #pompeii #romanruins

A glimpse of the Roman ruins of Jerash, Jordan’s second most visited site. Well worth a visit as a day trip from Amman 😍 For more info about Amman and pictures from my stay, see the Travel page of my blog - link in my bio 😊 . . . #amman #ammanjordan #romanruins #travel #travelholic #travelvideo #traveladdict #traveller #roundtheworld #globetrotter #wanderlust #wheretofindme #happytraveller #travelblogger #traveling #lifewelltravelled #travelawesome #travelstoke #igtravel #mytravelgram #instatravelling #traveltheworld #natgeotravel #jerash #jerashjordan

Here are some of the remains of the Roman villa I mentioned. We just love ruins. I think if I could do a job totally different than my own (high school English teacher), I would be an archaeologist. Other options are anthropologist or neurologist. What would you do, if you could choose a totally different job? ———————————————— 📍Grottoes of Catullus / Grotte di Catullo . . . . . #italytrip #travelitaly #italiabella #italy_vacations #italybesttravels #topitalyphoto #italyinsider #italy_ig #volgoitalia #magicaitalia #vivi_italia #italiait #sirmione #lakegarda #romanruins #girlsmeetglobe #citizenfemme #sheisnotlost #ladiesgoneglobal #womenwhoexplore #femmetravel #girlsborntotravel #shetravels #femaletravelbloggers #globelletravels #girlsthatwander #travelgirls #lagodigarda
