I leave in 2 days and I’m getting excited. I’ve not blogged recently because I’ve been enjoying the city and the great weather. The weather in London is actually supposed to be nicer than Rome during the time I’m away although the forecast for Rome is great. Just my luck.
Anyways, I’m excited to go to Italy (again) because I studied Italian in high school and in university. Actually I contemplated getting a minor in Italian but decided against it as I wanted to make sure I finished in 4 years.
I’ve been to Italy before but only on a (long) stop over in Milan. So I’m happy to go back and see more of the country. My high school Italian teacher had ‘culture Fridays’ in class where she would bring in authentic food, or we’d watch a movie, or she’d highlight the art. So it’s safe to say I developed a love of Italian culture.
There is much to see in Rome but I think I’m most looking forward to seeing the Sistine Chapel. Especially the image below as I used to have a print of it. My first stop when I get in will be the Vatican and its musems since the Catholics will take it over on Sunday. I’ll update some time next week and let you know how the trip went. Until then, Happy Easter!
