Ciao, Roma

Hey guys! I’ve been meaning to post about my time in Rome but alas I came down with some awful food poisoning that left me out of commission for a bit. Womp womp. My first day in Rome was fantastic – Ty and I went on a six hourΒ walking tour where we basically saw everything from the Pantheon to the Colosseum. Our tour guide, Tom, was great and taught us a lot about the rich history of this ancient city. We also stopped by a cat sanctuary commissionedΒ by none other than Mussolini…I know right. But apparently cats are honorary citizens in Rome and you’ll find them just chilling in cafes and stores.

I have more photos I have yet to upload but will do soon. Overall impression of Rome: it’s super old and you really don’t need more than a couple of days to see everything. You can honestly make a day trip out of it. The Trevi Fountain was extremely touristy too. I think my visit was definitely tainted by my getting sick, but Rome just wasn’t my city.

In other news, I’ve been in Paris less than 24 hours now and I’m in love and never want to leave. I cannot wait to bombard y’all with photos of everythinggg since I’ll be here for the next six days!

Spread kindness and cheer, xo
