Writing out of Rome


OK. So yes I know I haven’t written anything yet, but in all truth, nothing worth writing about actually happened. I went to Iceland, it was amazing, I climbed a mountain and some glaciers. I went to Switzerland, killed my legs taking a five hour hike. I went to Munich and watched a HUGE coo-coo clock make noise and spin for like 20 minutes. *rolls eyes* Then I went to Berlin, I went into the Blackriver Store in berlin (its a little shop where they sell mini skateboards and have mini skateparks and stuff, its dorky, but I spent six hours there. So ya.) Then I went to Salzburg and saw an old fortress thingy, kinda cool. After that, I went to Venice, did a lot of walking, it was pretty cool, but I wouldn’t go back. And I know my grammar sucks, don’t hate. Then I went to lake Garda there was nice water and I would totally go back there again, and again. Anyway, after Lake Garda, I went to Florence, I HATED that, too many naked statue people. Uhhhhhh yeaaaaa…..Anyway, after THAT I went to Rome, I LOVED ROME!!!! So now comes the more detailed writing, any further writing after Rome will be as detailed as this Rome passage. OK? OK.

Here we go: Rome was awesome! When we arrived off the train it was hot and annoying and all of us were tired (Me, Mom, Becky, and Kaitlyn, who joined us in Munich) so we went to our apartment and LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THAT APARTMENT OH. MY. GOD. IT WAS SO AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL. WE HAD A VIEW OF SOME CHAPEL THINGY (Sistine Chapel) FROM OUR PORCH ON THE TOP FLOOR. THERE WAS BRICK AND STUFF ON THE WALLS IT WAS SO COOOOOLL. I WANT TO LIVE THERE.

So, after we got settled all of us rested, I played on my phone and tanned my white pasty stomach in the sun on our porch. While I was on the porch a bee landed next to me and anyone that knows me right now is like, “Oh and then she ran away screaming.” WELL, NO I DIDNT! The bee was chilling with me, he was my little buddy, I took some pics, it was fun. Don’t ask. Anyway, later that night we all went out to dinner at this fancy place……and I may or may not have had a fancy drink with Bourbon in it….yea, no one kill me please. Let me tell you, I slept like a rock when we got home though.

The next morning we all got up late and later ended up going to the Sistine chapel after running around in taxis and going to the wrong place like 5 times (only once but still). THE SISTINE CHAPEL THING WAS SO BORING I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA DIE OMGGGG. IT WAS SO HOT AND I HAD TO WHERE LONG PANTS AND SOMETHING THAT COVERED MY SHOULDERS BECAUSE OF THE FRICKEN DRESS CODE THEY HAD FOR THIS ‘HOLY PLACE’ THE ONLY HOLY THING IN THERE WAS MY HUSHED VOICE SAYING, ‘HOLY CRAP ITS SO FRICKEN HOT IN HERE IM GONNA DIE’ Anyyywayyyy, that sucked it was too hot and everyone knows how I do in heat. All the art really wasn’t my thing either. So that wasn’t fun.

After that experience we went to the Colosseum, THAT WAS AMAZING!!! I learned about the history of it in school, so I was very informed. PLUS I GOT TO SEE WHERE THAT COOL SCENE IN THE MOVIE JUMPER WAS FILMED. I WAS SO HAPPY AND I WOULDN’T SHUT UP ABOUT THE JUMPER THING. But I loved the Colosseum and would gladly go back.

Then, we made our way back home on the bus after eating dinner and dessert. And this morning me and mom got up, packed, said our goodbyes, and left for the train to the Amalfi Coast. And that brings us to current time because I’m on the train as I am writing this. So I hope you enjoyed the update on my life. I miss you all, and give my love to my family and friends.

Until the next place, see ya later!

A question I am asked all the time!

“What are you most excited for?”

A: Well, that’s a hard one and even though I am asked this all the time my answer hasn’t changed. I am excited for all of it! There is no one thing I want to see/do/experience but in a “big picture” way of answering; I want to learn the cultures, see the people and what they do differently, and experience the things that I haven’t done before! We live our lives in a cage, not venturing beyond the walls of our own borders, metaphorically and literally. The borders of finance and home, and the political borders of our states, countries, and continents. So, I know how lucky and grateful, I am. Although, I was, and still am scared of what I will be experiencing, some say that is crazy, how could I be nervous standing at the threshold of a once-in-a-lifetime experience? To which I say, “Life itself is the experience, and I was nervous, to begin with.” Even before I learned I was going on a freaking world trip!
