Captured on Camera: Eurotrip Day 3 – Rome

My last full day in Rome was spent quite leisurely; which was completely fine by me! Before I left for my trip I was told that everything that I see during the day, I must see at night as well. The only place I managed to see at night was the Colosseum. Seeing it all lit up is so worth it! Earlier that day however, I was able to see a few more sights and places. I love Rome!

I made a promise to myself last year when I turned 25 on October 25th; I told myself that this would be a year that I would never forget.

I took an overnight flight from Toronto to arrive in Rome mid-Friday morning. A weekend in Rome? Yes please!! Side note: Pearson Airport has undergone a lot of changes since I was there last year.  I was a very happy girl relaxing in that tech-savvy world …
