When in Roma…
My foreign adventure began in Rome after an eight hour flight to Frankfurt, Germany, and then another two hour flight into Italy. Rome is an amazing, beautiful, and historic place. All I could think of was The Lizzie McGuire Movie when I arrived. I could hardly believe it was real life. But, it was real life, and every single ancient ruin and artistic architecture that you imagine when you think of Rome is exactly how you would picture it (except even more amazing). Since Rome is full of tourists, I didn’t run into hardly any issues of language barrier or extreme culture shock. Rome is very accommodating to it’s tourists and almost every menu and map can be found in both English and Italian. It was exhausting walking miles and miles on cobblestoned hills, but it was well worth it. Not to mention, the 50-60 degree weather was perfection.
