I went on a brief trip to Rome for a press conference, a city tour, some shopping (yeeey, I found an awesome, cheap, pair of jeans) and for some coffee. We took off shortly after 6 AM and landed back in Bucharest little before midnight, being the last plane that landed on Otopeni that night. We had a „crosswinds landing”. It was the first time I experienced a landing in such conditions. The wings were shaking and everyone around me seemed a little concerned. In my pure ignorance, I was just enjoying it :).
This is how we landed in Rome.
And this is how we took off at 5 in the morning from Bucharest.
I also learned valuable lessons on the streets of Rome.
And we went on the tour. I assure you, I’m positive! Rome is awesome! And it’s very nice this time of year, when there aren’t many tourists.
- If you want luck, you throw a penny
- If you want to do it proper, you throw it with your right hand, over your left shoulder
- To fall in love, throw 2 pennies
- To get married, 3
- To get a divorce, 4
When you get to Rome, you now what to do! Right hand over left shoulder, the appropiate amount of pennies.
So.. Rome is beautiful…inside and out…little puzzle pieces that fit togheter through authenticity and tradition, through all sorts of ice cream flavours, from which you can find it hard to choose.
For me, Rome falls into the category of slow cities. You don’t run around trying to see everything. In Rome, you enjoy, you taste, you absorb it’s energy…
