For Christmas this year, the family present was a trip to Rome! My parents did not have the opportunity to go when they lived in Germany many years ago, so I know they were excited at the chance to see one of the world´s most Historically rich cities. That being said, it takes a lot of time and energy to plan, and accomplish, a trip in Rome. There are so many sites, museums, art galleries, and restaurants to go too, that it can be a bit overwhelming! This planning for this trip started months in advance, and it was nice to enjoy the long awaited trip.
It was also exciting for everyone to meet my boyfriend, Nate, who they had only ever seen through Skype before. A big trip for all of us, and I loved having them with me in the same city. While Nate was with us, we went on a bus tour, to the Colosseum, and Pantheon.
After he left, we carried on with our grueling pace, going to…The Palatine, Roman Forum, Museum Borghese and the Vatican/Vatican Museums. I was fortunate to be able to go to Rome for Spring Break in 2014, so I appreciated that I got to see everything twice, and be able to marvel at the wonders before me.
