Coming from Lugano to Rome was the strangest funniest thing ever! As everything is so quiet and calm in Lugano, as soon as we arrived in the city of Rome we got the sense of crazy all around (And I Loved It!!). When you're in Rome you know. There's no way avoiding the rhythm of the city and you have to move with it or basically someone will run you over!
I had never seen anything like this, but Italians are actually INSANE! They cross the streets wherever they want, whenever they want and the cars and scooters drive in a way I couldn't quite understand (all I could think was I could never drive there cause I would hit another car in 5 seconds or even hurt someone).
I got home with a twisted ankle (yes this is another thing about my travels: I always come home with something broken, twisted or hurt), bought a lot of gifts for my parents (and myself) - way too many, but this is another story! - and for the longest time I just wanted to say how much I loved Rome.
Whenever people talked to me, after arriving in Portugal, and asked me how my Erasmus went, I didn't wanna talk about it, I had nothing to tell about Switzerland at that time, all I could say was that it was nice but Rome was awesome!
