Roaming Around Rome (all alone)

The past few days, I was fortunate enough to travel to Rome, Italy. Within the first few hours of my trip, I was in love. Rome is a very different place than Barcelona. The streets are smaller and windy; people are friendly and will greet you with a “ciao;” the food is to die for.…
