I'm the Map, I'm the Map, I'm the Map.

I want to apologize for my blog on Paris. I just retread it and it was very negative. I wrote that blog on the train to Venice at 7:20am  which was after the full night train I had just taken. I wasn't in the greatest state of mind. I really did enjoy Paris though. The art, the style, the culture, and the food was great.  I would highly  recommend visiting Paris if you haven't. Just go when it is warmer..and maybe take someone along with's definitely a city you want to have someone to share everything with. Today we started our day at the Vatican. The paintings on the ceilings of the Sistine Chapel  were amazing. I was so happy to have company today. It felt like I knew Chantel, Ryan, and Krysta forever. I will definitely be visiting Vegas..not too soon though..I need a break from traveling. They were headed on a 10 day cruise today so we headed back to the hotel around 1. I felt so sad after they left. It was pathetic. I picked myself up though and tried to see as much as I could with the rest of my day. I first headed toward the Spanish Steps. I absolutely loved that part of Rome. I roamed the streets while I ate a slice of pizza. Next I headed towards Trevi Fountain, and then the Pantheon. I stumbled across a square with a small carnival which only added to my plethora of photos. I love that word...plethora. My trusty map escaped from my pocket. I called for it like Dora the Explorer calls for her map yet it never came back. I got a bit lost but being lost gives you an opportunity to see things you may not have if you weren't. I must say I am really proud of myself for how well I get around without ever asking for directions. I am patting myself on the back with my nontyping hand. Tommorow I will tour the Colosseum and try to make to the gardens of Villa Borghese. I am headed back to Ireland a bit early. I wanted to spend a bit more time with all my new friends before I leave.
