Random Romance in the City of Love

The real random romance came the next day though. Looking out at a canal, I looked up as a tall, blond-haired, blue-eyed, attractive man walked up to me.
“Hello, do you know who you look like?” he asked.
“You look like someone I would like to meet…”
Such an original line and I couldn’t say no; normally I might have been put off, but I was traveling alone in Italy, the city of romance; besides, he had a cute accent.
The clouds we looming in but I foraged towards a part of the island I hadn’t made it to yet-the more residential area in the east.
Back early to my hostel I ran into 4 Germans who were just checking in. Reluctant to end the night early, I made friends and was invited to a pizza dinner with these friendly travelers, where we waited nearly an hour, but got to know each other. They told me about life in Germany, and I about the states. Two of the guys didn’t speak much English, but were adorable when they tried. I felt warm inside at how much they enjoyed each others company, making a toast about every other sip of their wine they took, as opposed to our toast at the beginning of the rounds. Content, I made my way back to my hostel and crashed, ready to head to Rome the next day, where I was to be overwhelmed by a city’s grandness and history like I never have before.
