I remember it was April in 2008…I had started working in Athens and despite my good start, that period wasn’t the best for me. I had
parted from a relationship and I was still in the period of denial, I wasn’t going to work very moody, as you understand, so this situation has dropped my psychology to minus. So I asked one week off my work, although I didn’t know what to do with this.
I mean that on the one hand I didn’t want to stay to Athens for a week, on the other hand visiting m parents or friends was not an option either due to my bad mood. Psychology that was getting worst, when I accepted that I was about to travel solo. Even if I had travelled alone in the past, I always met friends I visited in my destinations. I had always someone with me to visit a sight or a museum, company to change small talks or discuss a matter. Even when we had to distribute works, that had to be done, I had someone to rely. I was booking the hotel for example, another friend was checking the air tickets, leading to a better organized journey. This time though everything was different. So I was sitting gazing through Google earth, searching for friendly destinations for me, meaning wherever couples don’t go, wherever I could have a full day with stuff to do. From attractions to visit and museums to walks and other activities. I ruled out from the list destinations like Paris, Prague or Venice and I kept searching. Lets face it, you can’t visit Paris, the city of love, when you are alone. Where should I go, where should I go, that’s how I was passing my time when I noticed Rome….Hmmm you think so??? I had never been to Rome before, although i had travelled to Italy twice and the main reason was tha i always thought of Rome as an easy destination, one of those i would definitely visit once. Thats how i neglected to go. But now Rome seemed to be the ideal destination!
