When in Rome, do what the Romans do. That's exactly what we did when we visited Rome for the second time. The first time I was here, which was a few years back, I didn't really appreciate it unlike how I did now. I went back to the same places, but I guess when you're too young, your understanding of its rich history and culture isn't as broad. You tend to get more adventurous and mature as you grow older because there's this inner longing to learn more about the world and everything that it has to offer. Also, it's a coincidence that we're currently studying Roman history in my classes now as a college freshman so it makes me relate more to the topic. It's really different when you're learning it in the classroom and seeing the actual evidences right before your eyes. Traveling for me is not just learning, but living the life of others for just a short amount of time and that's one of the main reasons why it's something that I love. Check out the pictures below! :)

Imagine waking up and opening your eyes to see this kind of view... 
It was such a great way to start the day. This is what we all saw in our hotel window!

My look for that day: White on white with a hint of blacks and golds 

The Colosseum in Rome where bloody gladiator fights for 
"entertainment purposes" which were witnessed by many happened 

Inside one of the churches around Rome! Look at those details!!!

The architectural designs around Rome make you wonder how long they sculpted the details around it. Even if it took quite some time, I think it's worth the wait if it'll come out as beautiful as this!

Can you guess  what this is? This was part of the ceiling while we went around the St. Peter's Square    

St. Peter's Basilica in St. Peter's square which was the last stop for the tour!
