We take our next taxi to land at the Pantheon. Just when we think that we have seen it all in Rome, you round another corner and see another amazing view. Scattered throughout the city is a host of amazing fountains, buildings, ruins, pillars, and statues. It is like a buffet for the eyes.
You don’t want to look down for fear that you will miss one iota of a view. I point out ruins and fountains to Caleb and watch his eyes dart around, soaking up all that a 13 year old can absorb for his young years.
Our visit to Rome has been amazing. It is like walking through the pages of a history book, eagerly reviewing its treasures and walking through its pages. We cross centuries, cultures, people, and places, discovering a new world to us. We ventured out and discovered Paris, Venice, Florence and Rome on our 10 day tour. We enjoyed each of the cities and our walk through their sites. Every trip to Europe has been a time of great discovery.
I feel blessed that each of my children have now seen Europe. They add to their experiences a chance to understand just how big the world is, and the amazing variety of its people, cultures, food, lands, and surroundings. I hope that you take the chance to go on similar discoveries to the locations that beckon you.
