I will start off by saying that I am still very tired from all the walking I did in Rome. I don’t know how many kilometres I covered but they were all worth it. We arrived in Rome early in the morning on Friday so that we could have a whole day of exploring. I was with my elderly relative and I had to plan our itinerary to suit her limited mobility and strength. Travelling with her may take a little more planning, but she makes my trips such a pleasure with her perspective.
Our first stop after leaving our stuff at the hotel was the Colosseum – an awe invoking structure especially since it was constructed such a long time ago. The queue was very long but it moved fast so we did not have to wait too long to go in.

It always amazes me to see ancient manmade structures that have stood the test of time, be it wars or earthquakes. A person can truly achieve unimaginable feats if she puts her mind to it.
