During the year I lived in Germany, I had the privledge of visiting several countries. Among the countries visited, my time in Rome was one of the greatest! The history that is there is unbelievable. You can take yourself back in time! When you travel to a new place, you always want to see what the country has to offer. However, you don't seem to consider some of the travel hazards. The one thing that all of the travel guides warned of pickpocketing children. I actually did have an encounter with two children. They were walking closely behind my boyfriend and I and I mentioned that they might try and pickpocket us. He turned around and gave the kids a stern look and they started walking in the opposite direction. I couldn't believe it!! Another thing that was rather bothersome was the amount of gypsies. They were everywhere begging for money! Other than that, my trip was wonderful! Some of the places that I enjoyed:
- The Vatican -- Be sure to visit the Sistine Chapel!
- The Coloseum -- Walk through an go back in time
