Rome will always hold a special place in my heart


I studied about Rome when I was in college. I learned about the history, the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, how art & architecture changed through time, as well as the culture of the city. Basically, this class made me fall in love with Rome. 

Back in January of 2012, I decided to take my very first solo trip* to Rome. It was a 2-hour fast train ride from Bologna, so I told myself “when in Rome!” (cheesy, I know). 

This Colosseum picture was taken on my first day in Rome. My heart started to palpitate 100 miles per second when I first caught a glimpse of it; I took this picture to remind me of that moment.

*This was my very first trip as a solo traveler. 



  1. I LOVE THE FOOD!! Lazio is probably my favorite region when it comes to food — Pasta Amatriciana, Carbonara, Cacio e Pepe. I also love the little street corners that you discover while you walk around AND architecture of course.
