For my second location on my Wanderlist for while I’m abroad I had to go with Rome. Last year I took a class called Civilizations of Rome where we learned about ancient Roman history and every since then I have been dying to go to Rome (I wanted to go before this class, but now I really really want to go). I think it would be so cool to see some of the places that we learned about and were built so many years ago. I am also fascinated by history (the nerd in me coming out) so I would love to learn more about the history of the different monuments while seeing them firsthand. I of course also want to do all of the touristy things like take a picture in front of the colosseum and throw a coin in the Trevi fountain (let’s be real, I’m already planning the amazing profile picture I can get while there). Here’s some photo porn of Rome, just so you can get as excited about the city as I am.
