A stroll through the Vatican City

I went for a relatively quick stroll through the Vatican City with a colleague this afternoon. It’s spectacular, and busy. I snapped a couple photographs along the way.

I’m planning to return there tomorrow morning to spend some more time taking better photos.

St Peter’s Basilica at night

We have a great view of St Peter’s Basilica from our hotel. I went up to the hotel’s rooftop deck before heading to my hotel room for the night to take a couple photos, including this one:

We’ll probably get to see more of the Vatican, and other sights in Rome on Friday. For now, we have a pretty good view of this structure.

When in Rome …

One of the perks of working for Automattic is having the opportunity to travel for team and company meetups. I arrived in Rome earlier today for a week-long team meetup.

Because we’re a distributed company, we don’t often have a chance to meet our teams in person. Meetups are fantastic opportunities to get to know the people we work with so much better.

I started capturing my experiences when I arrived at the train station in Modiin on my way to the airport, partly so I could share my journey with my family through a shared Google Photos album.

Here are a couple of photos that I took of the area around our hotel, about a stone’s throw from the Vatican City:
