In March, a friend and I spent the weekend exploring Rome. and the Vatican City. I have to say, it was much different than I expected! I had always envisioned Rome as historic and slow paced, almost like stepping back in time. It was much more modern than I had anticipated. Right next to the ancient Coliseum was an expressway packed with cars during rush hour. The juxtaposition of modern and ancient was very interesting and unexpected. It's like half of the city developed into a modern metropolis while the other half stood still in history.
Thanks for stopping by. A little about me — I have a latte each morning and drink about 7 cups of tea a day (not exaggerating.) I live in Atlanta where I'm going to law school. I like long distance running and I love my city and I love exploring our beautiful earth. I believe in following our passions & being free.
I started this blog to document and share my favorite moments while traveling. This is a place where I process my ideas, share the aches and joys of my heart, speak truth, and shine light on the beauty I see in the world.
I've realized that what I probably love most about traveling is the same thing I love about writing — the way it connects me to myself and other people. I hope as you read my words, you feel connected to our shared humanity.
Thank you for reading. :)
