Italy calls out to me like a well-mannered, small child, Rome has been patiently sitting in the back of my mind along with its brother Milan. Without being too pushy, it alerts its presence at the most random of times. While I’m busy editing photos or catching a sports game on the tube, Rome whispers in my ear, making sure he’s not forgotten. The history, the architecture, a plate of noodles...gives me the urge to drop everything and just go! Watching a soccer game here in the USA and seeing them celebrate another remarkable Higuain goal gives me the shivers of what it would be like to experience that in person. Nothing can compare to this...not in the USA for that matter. I want to end this writing...type in Expedia in my browser and by the first flight...Italy here I come. I'M READY!
