Heixin's first memories of Rome


14 November 2016

Inside the St. Peter's Cathedral
The tour of St. Peter's Cathedral.
The second hallway consisted of huge tapestries draping on each wall. The third hallway consisted of huge maps of old Italia. Then we went inside the Sistine Chapel! Unbelievable paintings there, it's like they were in 3D. Magnificent shadowing and details in each painting. Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take pictures.
More photos of the Vatican museum. Look at those spectacular ceiling!
In the morning, we had the opportunity to tour the Vatican Museum. We managed to bypass the line and went straight through. The architectures, the sculptures and paintings were spectacular. There were no words to describe.

As soon as I landed I took the station to go straight to Central Rome, checked in my hostel and made my way to the Coliseum. It was a breathtaking sight and I wish I had more time to capture the beauty from inside and out.
Welcome to Rome! At last I finally was able to step foot on one of my favorite countries in the world, Italy! Beyond excited!

My take off towards my first destination, Rome! I haven't been on a plane for more than 20 years so I was beyond excited to fly again that my face was practically glued on the window just absorbing everything in sight
