Back from Rome! 'Beauty on Every corner"

Rome was a blast. I haven't worn flat shoes, sneakers basically, for four days in a row, all day, for a very long time, but it was totally worth it.

What can be said for Rome?

"Beauty on every corner."

I love being where history is.

The Metro was pretty easy to figure out and by day two we had the city mapped and
knew it without asking locals for help.

We watched a guy the train almost get picked pocketed.

We had to see Vatican City twice, it was so good. I was anxious to walk down the golden halls and gallery of maps again. The sight of the Sistine Chapel will blow you away.

Saw Castel S. Angelo, the Pantheon, and Spanish Steps.

Got yelled at by an old lady for kissing my boyfriend in a church in the Piazza Navona. The very first thing we saw was the Colosseum, it is such a weird feeling, eyes open wide, thinking of how many people were killed there and just how many people in general who have been there and how the Colosseum still stands.

Ate so much pasta.

I will have some pics up soon.
