Let The Power Of The Fountain Allow Me To Return

As much as I wanted to stay, I really enjoyed the way we ended this wonderful trip. We were given the opportunity to discover Rome on our own through a scavenger hunt. We followed a map that led us to the famous and historical sights of Rome, and at those different points we had tasks that we had to complete. We walked all over the city visiting the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, and the Spanish Steps. It was an amazing experience to walk around our own with no guides getting a first hand view on Italian life throughout the streets and feeling the lively energy of the city. At the end of our adventurous day, we ate at the Hard Rock Cafe and told stories of the lifetime memories we made. Then we went back to our hotel and spent more time together before getting ready to leave the city. The next morning we got up bright and early to catch our plane. As much as I wanted to stay in the beautiful city, I was ready to come home and see my family and friends. I will always be grateful for this experience, because it has inspired me in so many ways to return and to follow my dream to live in a different country attempting to dive fully into its culture and living a vastly different life than what I've known. I will continue to hope and believe that the power of throwing a coin in the Trevi Fountain will allow me to return and relive the greatest time of my life once again.
