We planned a last minute vacation in Europe for after Josh's finals. A European "bucket list" you might call it. Our first stop was Rome, Italy. In my opinion, there are a few hotspot destinations in Europe; London, England (check), Paris, France (check), and Rome, Italy (check). We only spent two nights in Rome, and of all the places that I've been lucky enough to travel to in Europe, Rome is one of the few that I hope I'll get the chance to go back to someday. It is everything that you dream Rome might be like and more; romantic, beautiful, old, and has the most delicious Italian food ever.
My college roommate Codi just so happened to be visiting her cousin in London and so we invited her to join us in Rome. I was so happy to have her travel with us, especially since I hadn't seen her in probably two years.
Of course our first tourist stop was the Colosseum, which is much grander than you can even imagine. We've all seen pictures, and watched the movie Gladiator, but let me tell you that in person, there really are no words to accurately describe it. It just shoots up into the sky and I can't imagine how they could build something so grand without the use of cranes and lifts.
