This week starts midterms, and I have started my reflection on my experience abroad thus far. I cant believe it is half over. I NEVER want to leave London, this has become my home and my favoutite city in the world. I cant imagine ever going back and living in the states, although I know that'll be coming shortly. We've traveled to fabulous places such as Dublin and Rome and have met some amazing people. I have a midterm in every class this week, so this blog will be short and sweet so I can get back to studying.
This past weekend we went to Roma, Italia!!! It was such a fun city and I definitely enjoyed it much more than Dublin. I met a guy on our flight there named Gianpaolo and he was from Italy and gave me suggestions on where to go. Thank god for Gianpaolo because we had nothing planned. The first night we got there late and went to get diner at this little restaurant close to our hostel. the most AMAZING meal weve ever had. Caprese and spaghetti and we had two bottles of wine between the three of us. This was Caitlyn, Tara and I's first time staying in a hostel and it was really nice it was in the City Centre, walking distance from everything! On Friday morning we went to the Vatican and the Colosseum, the Colosseum was such an amazing experience. It was 65 and sunny all day and we all walked away with a bit of colour on our faces. The next day we went to the Spanish steps and walked along Via Del Corso, which is perfect for people watching and shopping. We knew going there that the Trevi Fountain was going to be under construction, it looked terrible, I would go back to Rome just to see the Trevi Fountain and make a wish.
Rome was a fabulous city, and super easy to get around. Not sure if I could ever live there though, I love London too much!
Me, Caitlyn and Tara
BEST MEAL EVER
