After my Seychelles trip, of course, I went to Italy to visit my new friend and his girlfriend. I heard they were back together again. That was good news. I got in touch with the Italian guy who helped me when I was bitten by a dog in Chile but we didn’t get to see each other unfortunately. He was from the southern part of Italy and I was doing a loop from Rome up to the northern part and then back to Rome. Anyway, it was fine. I knew I couldn’t do the entire Italy within 2 weeks. So, quoting other backpackers, that gives us an excuse to go back there. 😛
Because I was doing a loop, my plan was to stay in Rome for my first day (I arrived in Rome very early in the morning), then visit Vatican, and then to other places and reserved Rome for my last 2 days.
I met a really nice Italian after I arrived in Rome. My hostel nestled in a small street which was very close to the main road, but since I was there for the first time, I had trouble finding it. An old man approached me and asked me if I needed help. He was speaking in either Italian or broken English. Anyway, I somehow could understand him. I didn’t (and still don’t) know any Italian. He took me to a place near the hostel and then gave me directions. He couldn’t take me to the entrance of hostel because he needed to go somewhere else. But that was really kind of him.
I left my backpack in the storage room of the hostel, studied the map of Rome that I got from the hostel and planned for the day.
I strolled non-stop from Republica to Santa Maria degli Angeli (Michelangelo’s final work), Fontana del Tritone, Fontana di Trevi, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Piazza Navona and then back on my first day.
Next, let’s visit another country tomorrow. 😉
