On 03.10.2019 I took the earliest flight of my life (6:35 am!) from London to Rome! I had been to Rome before, but the difference between Emily 7 Years Ago and Emily Today is staggering enough to make a re-visit feel like an entirely new place.
After finally locating my friend Emma at the Spanish Steps, we did my favorite thing to do in a city: wander around. We had pasta and wine (of course) at the Piazza Navona.
Not having data internationally truly leads to getting lost, so when I finally found my hostel I had walked past the Pantheon, Roman Forum, and the Colosseum. For dinner, we ate pizza in a restaurant tucked away right next to the Trevi Fountain. Of course we ate gelato and wandered the streets at night to explore Rome’s nightlife.
