🍭S’s First Days in Rome
What were you grateful for this week? I was so grateful to be put with such an amazing family. My host mom is the sweetest human being and the kids and adorable. I’m so happy to be able to live in such an amazing place.
What was the most difficult or challenging part of this week? With it being my first day here there wasn’t much going on. I guess you could say the most challenging thing was trying to catch my final flight to Rome, my last plane landed at 2 and my flight was at 2:45 but I had to re check my luggage and go through security again.
Tell us about a "wow" moment you had this week. So I don’t know if you would call this a “wow” moment but my host sister wants to learn how to sew and I told her I would teach her, we just got her a sewing machine and she was just lit up.
Tell us about your week! Like I said this is only my first day but I’m not letting a day go to waste. I went to theColosseum (which was better than I imagined) and walked around all the ancient Roman ruins. It was literally walking distance from my apartment so I just walked there by myself after lunch! Like what an adventure. And of course you can’t come to Italy and not have gelato, so on my way home I stopped at the cutest shop and wow was the gelato amazing. I wouldn’t mind eating that everyday.
I can’t believe this is home for the next 3 months. Anyway I’m so excited to see more of Rome this week, like the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps (all also walking distance from me which is so great) I’m also excited to eat more Italian food, and try their wine!
My birthday is coming up so we’re gonna party, I’ll definitely let everyone know how that goes lol. I can’t wait to go to other countries as well! I already booked a flight to Copenhagen, Denmark to visit a friend from high school which I am so excited to do because I haven’t seen her in 3 years! Anyway Europe is amazing and I definitely recommend everyone to visit at least once.
