All in One Cardio: 15 minute Jump-Rope Workout

The first time I was introduced to the skipping rope, aka the jump-rope, was in primary school gymnastics. I loved these classes, dancing around with ribbons, balls and ropes. So, early on, I became familiar with the skipping rope. However, back then I didn't see it as a form of exercise. The skipping rope was simply one of my instruments for gymnastics classes. I moved cities and schools for high school, and never did gymnastics again. The next time I met the skipping rope was during college when...

Rome Sightseeing Stroll at Sunrise (without the crowds)

One of my new favourite things to do, when I'm up for it, is stroll through the centre of Rome at the crack of dawn. The city is clean and fresh and quiet. It's also a totally different experience seeing the main sites. You get to actually SEE them in all their glory, without the masses of people covering them. Central Rome sightseeing at its best! This last stroll started at about 5:30am. Sure, you don't need to get up that early, but try and start...
