I am in Rome. It's my second day. Day one was spent catching up on sleep. The ride here was long. 8 hours on a plane is NOT fun.  I sat next to a nice boy going on spring break in high school. The plane caught the sun right as we were going over the alps. I dont think there could have been a better view. It was gorgeous. So far Rome is exciting. Lots of gelato and Italians speaking loudly. I think i will fit in : )

The day before....

Anticipation. Nerves. I am officially scared. A foreign land with crazy men and even crazier thieves. I have heard terrible stories about Rome, somehow it seems as if my mind is focusing on the bad rather than the good. So its important to remember that I am so excited for this experience. Just getting to experience the world. This is all my at this point. I am going to have to get over a lot of reservations I have and truly learn to trust my instincts and the Lord. It is sad to leave all my wonderful friends and my comfort zone here in Seattle. When I return a lot of things will be different, so will I. So here I go, off to Rome. Off to see the world. Wish me luck!
