Roma! Day 1/3August 27, 2017 in Italy
Unbelievable first day in Rome. There are no words to describe how everything makes me feel. We get to a Piazza with 7 corners and stand puzzled, every street looks like a perfect one. I honestly feel guilty knowing I can't possibly see every single alley, corner and building that inevitably catches my eye. Met a friend on the plane, Maddy from L.A. who spent the day with Dad and I walking around because she was alone before meeting her group. Haven't entered any museums/main attractions just yet, but soaked in a long view of the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, and St. Peters square just outside the Vatican. Can't believe I still have two days here. Just... Wow. Also, our hotel is a minutes walk from the famous Spanish plaza, with the Spanish Steps.
EDIT: PS. Haven't slept since 630 am Saturday morning in Vancouver. It is now 4:45 Rome time on Sunday. Just a few more hours and I just might nip this jetlag in the bud.Read more
