Lost in the City September 1, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 4:34 pm

Every day I walk through the heart of Rome, past the Vatican, past Saint Peter’s. I’m really here. There’s no denying it. I am in Rome, and I love it, yet at times, I feel incredibly lost. Like I’m missing out on something, like there’s is not and will never be enough time. At the moment, I’m attempting to plan a side trip for my weeklong break, and I think I have decided on Barcelona (where my beautiful friend Irene is studying). My other trip will probably take me to Germany (where I have wanted to travel since I studied German in 7th grade — I’m a 3rd year in college now!), and on the weekends, I want to go to Florence, Venice, Turin, and the other beautiful cities Italy has to offer. I am just so confused as to what I want to do. I want to go to so many places, see so many things, and have a wonderful, amazing time, yet I know that if I travel too much I’ll miss out on the little stuff that this big city has to offer. All the time spend traveling is time lost, and I’m afraid that I will still feel lost here at the end of my trip, and that is the last thing I want. There are two walking tours this weekend, plus a cooking class, and I can’t wait. I am also hoping to make reservations for the Borghese Gallery to see the Raffaello exhibit. Who’s excited now? XD
