This week has been a tough week. We spent Monday in the pub. Now that is a way to start the week. But in the terms of relationships it has been tiring.
I am now officially Single after 4 1/2 years and in a relationship with freedom. Well that is what I want at least. I took a train on Saturday to York and came back three hours later Single but still carrying a horrid weight upon my heart. It was a parting of two people that loved each other but have started living two separate lives. I was not happy. So here I am just over 24 hours into being single feeling sick, not hungry and with a heavy heart.
What do i do next. I feel like the lonely wanderer. I heard it gets worse before I start to feel better… Not looking forwards to that 😦
Today I got through everything on my list and got a little lost on the way. Here are some picture of my day. It absolutely poured it down today, so i bought the best umbrella. The Colosseum was amazing, I am in awe with the architecture of the historic buildings they are beautiful.
It is funny to think that this time last week I was wondering if I was strong enough to go to Rome on my own…and here I am in a hotel in Rome. I can’t wait to start the day tomorrow, there is so much I want to fit in. But today was hectic, firstly there were a lot of delayed trains to the airport due to flooding so I just made a jump and caught the next train hoping it was the correct one, thank goodness it was. Then at the airport a girl needed medical attention and as I am first aid trained I was the first one to her (she was right behind me in a que) I stayed with her until the proper medical staff arrived. It was strange being at the airport by myself, and not going through check out as I had already done it online. So I got to the airport and walked straight to departures, I really did not have to be there two hours before but then I think who would have helped that girl. Then we waited an hour on the plane before setting off as the grounds people changed shifts but I finally made it onto Leonardo express, it was easy to buy tickets, it seems a bit of a sell out but everyone speaks English ha. And then to my hotel, I found it easily did not have to use my map, I love my room it’s tiny but perfect for me, clean, comfy bed shower and I even have a balcony. Bring it on Rome.
I did it, I actually booked tickets to Rome, I am off for a single trip to visit the historic city. I have booked the flight and hotel, I even got a lonely planet pocket guide to help me on the way.
This makes me excited and nervous, I can’t wait to see everything I am just unsure how I am going to cope on my own. I am fighting my fears and saying yes for once.
The places that I am wanting to visit in my short two days.
St. Peter basilica
I am not sure if i can make it around all of them in two days but I am going to try.
If you have anywhere you think I should go or any information that I need as a solo traveler, any tips on getting around would be great. Especially getting to the Vatican would be appreciated.
This feels like a huge adventure lets hope I can do it.
